Bullock Edmondson

Obituary of Eliza M. Bullock, Eufaula, Alabama.

With sorrowful hearts we record the death of Miss Eliza M. Bullock, one of the most loyal and efficient members of the Barham County Chapter, at Eufaula. She had previously lived in Montgomery and was a member of the Dixie Chapter there. Her father, Col. Edward Bullock, was a prominent in all political affairs of that day. An eloquent speaker, he met and welcomed Jefferson Davis when he went to Montgomery to be inaugurated as President of the Confederacy. He was among the first to volunteer and served with the Eufaula Rifles until appointed Colonel of the 18th Alabama Regiment, C. S. A. He took command of the regiment, but died shortly afterwards, His name is enrolled with those of the brave men who first left Barbour County for the front.

Miss Bullock was born in Eufaula and there spent the happy days of childhood and youth. She was educated at Union Female College, under the administration of Professor and Mrs. McIntosh, In those girlhood days she was winsome and sweet and, as the years rolled on, developed into a strong and beautiful woman. A devoted member of the Episcopal Church, she was conscientious, self-sacrificing, charitable, loyal, and true-a woman worthy the name of friend. Several years after the death of her father she joined the ranks of the noble, earnest, intelligent workers of the world and worked always for the education and uplift of humanity, for the good and happiness of others, and she has left an impress for good upon the minds and hearts of hundreds of Alabama women. When her health failed, her heart turned homeward, and she spent the last year of her life teaching in Alabama Brenau, a part of which was the old Union Female College. Broken in health, but never in spirit, she fulfilled her duties there until her wrol was done.

Loved ones, with tearful eyes and aching hearts, laid the mortal body in a casket, covered with beautiful, fragrant flowers, and left her at rest in Fairview, beside those she loved best. The immortal spirit of God's invisible angels quickly caught and tenderly bore across the dark river to the beautiful beyond.

Mrs. R. Q. Edmondson,
Barbour County Chapter, U. D. C.
