It is a pity early obituaries like that of Agatha (Keeling aka Williams) Burton's are so brief. Still, it is rare to find an obituary for a woman in the early periods.
DEATHS.--Near Williamsborough, in Granville county, (N.C.) on 31st ult. Mrs. Agatha Burton, relict of the late Col. Robert Burton, aged 73 years.
