BESSIE NEWCOMB
In loving remembrance of Miss Bessie Newcomb, who departed her life on this earth, September 6th, 1925, to enter life Eternal.
She was precious to all who knew her; precious to her parents, because of her obedience and thoughtfulness along things that caused happiness to them; precious to her sisters and brothers because of her constant care and sweet tenderness aid precious to her friends for her loyalty and truth.
Those who knew her best loved her best. She became a member of Salem Christian Church in her young life and since proved the secret of her wonderful Christian life.  She lived her Christian life in every act and thought.
She was 22 years of age when her summons came and to the end she was active in all church and Sunday School work.  To her class she was faithful and in her work she displayed the untiring spirit and wishing all others to know more about Jesus and gaining this knowledge she felt she was making others happy.  She used every opportunity to do something for her Blessed Master.
She was placed in her resting place at Salem Christian Church September 7th, the church she loved and worked all of her life and the entire community is suffering the great loss of such a beautiful character, but not without hope, for we believe her blessed spirit is forever with the Lord, whom she served and to whom she belonged while here on earth.
Bessie was pure in heart and life and some of her last words while here on earth were: "Blood of Christ will wash our sins away." While her Christian influence will be greatly missed and we can't help but want her with us, we feel our loss here on earth is God's eternal gain in Heaven.  
By her Sunday School Superintendent,
C.N. NEWCOMB

Obit: SARAH HUNDLEY NORVELL
On the twenty-eighth day of March, 1928, at her home at Charlotte Court House, Virginia, at an advanced age, surrounded by her children whom she had tenderly and lovingly watched over during the years gone by, there passed Sarah Hundley Norvell, the widow of William Dabney Norvell, who preceded her many years to the world beyond.
Mrs. Norvell's death brings sorrow to many who will ever remember the kind and friendly greeting she always extended, and the genuine bountiful christian hospitality of the home over which she so beautifully and graciously presided. Truly can it be said of her that she always observe the bibilical injunction: "Use hospitality one to another without grudging."
Mrs. Norvell is the last in Charlotte County who represented the older culture of civilization of the South, the like of which will not be seen again. Each of those whom she reared may with genuine gratitude claim, "Yes, I have a good heritage." Sarah Watkins Hundley, fourth child of Elisha Estes Hundley and Elizabeth Bouldin, was born at Fruit Hill, the home of her father, September 5, 1836. She was therefore in her ninety-second year at the time of her death.
She was married on the eighth day of January, 1862, to William Dabney Norvell, of Lynchburg. The whole of her life, except a short period in Richmond and in Lunenburg during the Civil War, was spent in Charlotte County among those who will ever hold her in loving remembrance. Her husband, William Dabney Norvell, was the son of Edmund Butler Norvell, the third, and was born in Lynchburg on March 6, 1862. He died February 2, 1903. He was a descendant of William Norvell, "gentleman, who with his two brothers, came to America from Scotland about 1620, landing at Williamsburg, Virginia."
William Norvell was a civil engineer and laid off the town of Williamsburg, and was one of its incorporators. He was a member of the vestry of old Bruton Church, one of the oldest churches in America. He also served along with his brothers Hugh and Thomas in the House of Burgesses. Mrs. Norvell's father, Mr. Elisha Hundley, a greatly respected and honored man who came to Charlotte County from Halifax, married the daughter of James Bouldin, who was the grandson of Col. Thomas Bouldin, the old pioneer who settled at Golden Hills, then Lunenburg County in the year 1740.
Two of Mrs. Norvell's children Charles and Haywood, died years ago. There survive her: Elizabeth, Lucy, Elisha, William Dabney, Jr., Edmund Butler, Susan Hobson, Sallie, Caskie, and Anne. All of these were at her bedside except Elisha and Edmund, who arrived a few hours after their mother's death.
