Southwestern Christian Advocate, Thursday, November 27, 1879; Issue 48; col C

Mrs. Laura A. Matlock - The delay in the presentation to our readers of a suitable sketch of

the lately deceased wife of Rev. J Matlock, presiding elder of the Teche district, has been

unavoidable. Mrs. Laura A Matlock was born June 22, 1834, in New Berlin, Shenango Co., N.Y.

In her early childhood her father, Mr. O. Cowles, now of Monroe, Iowa, removed to Richfield,

Summit Co., Ohio, where she grew up to womanhood, and where in her nineteenth year she was

was converted and united with the M. E Church. There on the 10th of August, 1853, she married

Rev. J Matlock, then in the ministry, and consequently her whole married life had been

identified with active Christian life. Her very useful, and in the main happy life, closed

June 9 1879, at La Teche, Louisiana. She was a woman of fine culture, of good education, and

a faithful and efficient church worker. In the Sunday-school she took special delight. She was

blessed with musical talent of a high order, which she constantly cultivated and employed in

the interest of a high order, which she constantly cultivated and employed in the interest of

the church whenever an opportunity was met. She was a passionate lover of the beautiful in

nature, especially of flowers and shrubbery and many a parsonage yards in Ohio gave evidence

of her presence and taste, during her sojourn there. Her social qualities were of a high order.

The young people gathered around her lovingly whenever her lot was cast. Her self-denying

labor among the colored people at La Teche for the last three years, is deserving of special

mention. During this time she performed this time she performed missionary work in introducing

Christian influence in the homes of the freedmen, conferring with the mothers and daughters in

accord with her missionary sisters of the church in New Orleans. She will be gratefully

remembered for the work she preformed in the common school and Sunday-school for the elevation

of the freedmen. For some months preceding her death she seemed specially hopeful and happy,

and when attacked by the disease which subsequently proved fatal, she frequently remarked that

it would be her last illness. She expressed a desire to live longer on account of her family,

but said if it was the will of the Lord she was resigned to it. Her last words were "I am not

afraid to die"  "No! No!" Possessing the complete affection of those neared and dearest,

satisfied with her Christian lifework, Sister Laura A Matlock passed away in triumph to be

received   in the fold of the Savior above.
