 This is the obituary of my great-grand mother Bettie Jane Cook Gouge. She lived and died in Coalfield, Tennessee and has many decendants in Morgan Co. whom I think will enjoy reading this. It was found packed away in her sister ( Julia Mann’s ) personal things after her sister died. Julia’s grand-daughter gave it to me.

      The funeral of Mrs.Bettie Jane Cook Gouge, who died at her home in Oliver Springs, Sunday, Feb. 7, 1932 at 5p.m. was held Wednesday morning at 10 o’clock at the Middle Creek Church, with Rev. Walls of that place and Rev.J.B. Tallant of Harriman, officiating.
Mrs. Gouge was born July 27, 1870 and was married to W.H. Gouge in 1888. To this union twelve children were born, 3 of whom await her coming in the Great Beyond.  Mrs.Gouge professed faith in Christ at the age of 13. She was a loving mother, a true wife and a kind friend. To know her was to love her. She is
survived by husband W.H. Gouge, six sons, Hugh, James, Elmer, and Lewis of Oliver Springs, Harvey of Kentucky;  3 daughters, Mrs.Saddie Dills of Jefferson City, Mrs. Viola Smith of California and Mrs. Bessie McGlothin of Knoxville;  3 brothers, L.O. Cook of Chattanooga, Grover Cook of Johnson City and Frank Cook of Harriman, and one sister, Mrs. Julia Mann also of Harriman: 22 grandchildren and one great grand-child. Interment was at the Oliver Springs cemetery.
