The Death of Mrs. H. C. Cunningham

Sarah Alexander Cunningham’s Family Papers MS194 are at the Georgia Historical Society in Savannah. Among them is a scrapbook kept by her mother Nora Lawton, who married Henry Cumming Cunningham. However, this blog post is not about Nora, but about the 1st Mrs. H. C. Cunningham.

Death of Mrs. H. C. Cunningham.

The announcement yesterday of the death

of Mrs. H. C. Cunningham, which occurred

late on Tuesday night, was receive with gen-

eral sorrow and regret by a large circle of de-

voted friends.  Mrs. Cunningham was a

daughter of the late Hon. Richard H.

Wayne, and was a lady highly esteemed for

her many accomplishments, and her death

leaves a void in the circle in which she

moved that cannot be filled.  She leaves a

devoted husband and lovely children to

mourn her great loss.  The funeral services

will take place from Christ Church this

afternoon at 3 ½  o’clock.
