Mrs. Rosa Kelley, aged 64 years, passed away at her home in Murfreesboro,    
Monday, Feb. 20th (1928), at 9:00 o'clock. Deceased was born in the Kelley   
settlement, about three miles west of Murfreesboro, and has made this her    
home practically all her life. She suffered a stroke of paralysis about two  
years ago from which she never recovered, gradually growing worse and until  
a few days ago seemingly was doing well, but pneumonia set in and in her     
weakened conditioned she lasted only a short time. Deceased professed faith  
in Christ in 1886, and joined the Christian church, and lived a faithful     
Christian life. Her presence will be missed in the home, in the church, and  
in the town. A devoted and christian character, a sacrificing and loving     
mother, a good and faithful wife, the relatives and community as a whole has 
suffered an irreparable loss, that will take time to heal over. On December  
18th, 1884, the deceased was married to F.F. Carter, and to this union were  
born three children, all of whom survive. They are Charley and Schley Carter 
of Murfreesboro and Ollie Carter of Florida. Her husband, F.F. Carter, two   
brothers, Warren and George Kelley survive her. Funeral services were held   
at the Christian church Tuesday afternoon at 3 o'clock, and burial was had   
in the local cemetery after the services. Rev. N.J. Reese of Center Point
