Roanoke Beacon – December 9, 1898
Died – Again the messenger of death has invaded one of the quiet homes of Plymouth and claimed its own, leaving the home shrouded in deepest mourning. On Thursday night, at her home on Main street, Mrs. Kittie Carter, beloved wife of E.A. Carter, Esq., departed this life, after a long and tedious illness, aged — years. Thus a loving wife, a fond mother, a kind neighbor and a Godly woman has taken up her abode in that land beyond the skies.
The funeral services were conducted Sunday morning at 11 o’clock from the M.E. Church, of which, she had been a faithful member since early childhood. In the absence of her pastor, the services were conducted in a solemn and impressive manner by Rev. S.M. Spears, of the Christian Church.
Our sympathies are with the bereaved husband, two daughters and a large circle of relatives and friends who mourn.
