April 12, 1883 (The Commonwealth, a newspaper of Scotland Neck, NC, 3d page)


April 5th, 1883, near Scotland Neck, N.C., Mrs. Emily Spear Gammon, in the 50th year of her age. She had been afflicted for several years, but her last hours were peaceful and calm. Her last days were spent in preparation to meet her God, with strong faith in the merits of the Atonement. Peace to her ashes.


[I believe this is Emily Spear Johnson born in 1833. This Emily S. Johnson married Benjamin Gammon on June 3, 1860, per marriage record found on familysearch.org.]
