She was married at Oxford June 15, 1889 to Albert H. Caldwell, who predeceased her in death by 25 years, having passed away June 10, 1933.

Mrs. Caldwell was remarried in September of 1933 to Steve W. Taylor, who passed away March 14, 1958.

The deceased is survived by seven children, two sons, Claude A. Caldwell of Melbourne and Adlai H. Caldwell of Kansas City, Mo.; and five daughters, Mrs. O. C. Martin “Effie” of Oxford, Mrs. J. B.

She was loyal and faithful companion of the home, a loving and devoted mother, a true friend and a kind neighbor, who will be greatly missed in her home, her church and the community.

Most of her life was spent in Oxford and she had many friends here.

Memorial services were held Sunday afternoon at the Oxford Church of Christ with Elder T. H. Sherrell officiating. Concluding services and burial were in the Oxford Cemetery under the direction of Carter Funeral Service of Salem.
