Lizzie Lawson, best known as Sis Lawson, died at the residence of Mr. Newt Lillard Wednesday morning at six o’clock after several weeks of sickness. She contracted a severe case of fever a few months ago and its effect probably was the cause of her death. She was laid to rest July 8th at the Baptist Cemetery. She had lived at Mr. Lillard’s since she was a young girl and was much loved by his family on account of the long association and her lovable disposition. Polk County News Gazett.
