Death of Mrs. Coulter

(Hillsborough correspondent)

The angel of death visited this community Wednesday morning and took from our midst Mrs. Minerva Coulter, widow of the late Spencer Coulter.  Mrs. Coulter was at the time of her death 80 years, 10 months and 14 days of age and had been for 52 years a member of the Baptist Church at Rockbridge and was ever true to her profession of religion.  Many noble traits of character adorn her life.  The home in which she reared her children was a model one and when they pitched their craft on life’s sea she was a light for them to be constantly guided by.  Her mission on earth was also fulfilled and the death angel called to take her to the golden shore where there is no sorrow, no death but sweet peace and eternal rest.  The funeral was conducted Friday at the church by Rev. W. Ezra Sutherland before a large crowd of sorrowing relatives and friends, after which her body was tenderly laid to rest beside that of her husband, to await resurrection morn and then arise to walk in the newness of life.

Minerva J. Casteel married Spencer Coulter June 18, 1844, in Washington County, Kentucky.  Spencer was the son of Mark Coulter and Nancy Taylor.  Minerva and Spencer had 8 children:  Nancy A., William S., Andrew McHenry, Elizabeth, Samuel P., James R., Milly A. Coulter, and an infant who died at birth.  After almost 50 years of marriage, Spencer Coulter died June 22, 1892, and was buried in Hillsborough Church Cemetery.  Minerva was buried beside him, per her obituary.
