Thursday morning at 10 o’clock the death angel came to the home of Mrs. Charlie Moore and gathered the soul of her little sweet daughter Oderbelle, upon its snowy wings and wafted it back to the blessed Saviour who gave it. “Obbie” as she was known to everyone was twelve years eight months and a few days old. Just in the bloom of her youth but God saw best to call her home so she just paid the debt that we all owe.  Some say she had TB and others say it was pneumonia and her tonsils. So we were not certain what it was. She was a sweet and loving girl and to know her was to love her. All her schoolmates loved her. She was always so kind and good at school. After funeral services by Rev. E. E. Eddings she was laid to rest in Pleasant Ridge Cemetery. Her girl schoolmates were pall bearers. Weep not dear loved ones for sweet “Obbie” is not dead, but only asleep in the arms of the dear Saviour. She cannot come back to us but we can go to meet her if only we believe and obey God’s will.

Obituary:

Death is sad at all times, but when our loved ones are taken away from us almost without warning, it seems very sad indeed.  Uncle George Norwood is dead!  This was the sad news that went ringing over our land and country on last Monday, September 3, and it was oh such a shock to his dear old brothers and sisters and children.  Altho not feeling as well as usual, uncle George had attended a graveyard working at Pleasant Ridge on Saturday and on Sunday was walking about the place singing as usual.  Monday he complained of feeling bad and lay down across the bed, his granddaughter, Miss Dezzie Rutherford, asked him if he wanted a drink of water, and he replied, "No Dezzie.  I just want to rest, let me rest awhile", and with those words, he was gone to rest forever more.  Uncle George was born Dec. 27, 1835, being at his death, 87 years, 8 months and 7 days old, although a long time to stay in this old world of sin and sorrow, he was very active and no one had more friends than Uncle George.  He was another one of our good old Civil War Veterans and was a member of the Masonic Lodge and had been a member of the Methodist church for over 40 years.  He leaves behind to mourn his going away, his last wife, three brothers and two sisters, J. A. Norwood of Petersburg, Tenn., E. T. of Shannon Creek and J. H. who now makes his home on Clear Creek, {Rest of obituary was missing.}  The two sisters were, Mrs. Mary Tabitha Coffman of Ala., and Mrs. Elizabeth Thompson of Minor Hill.  His children, I know that were still living were, Cornelia M. Garner, Ann Jane Anderson, Martha Frances Rackley, Levi Edmund Norwood, Joseph Mitchell Norwood, and George Thomas Norwood.

Obituary: The Lawrence Democrat 9 Jun 1920

Again the Death Angel has visited this community and claimed as its victim, Mrs. Harriet Norwood, or as she is better known here as “Aunt Harriet.”  She had been in declining health for several years, so on May 23, God saw fit to call her from this old world of sorrow to the beyond.  Aunt Harriet has lived in this county many years and was a good woman.  She was a member of the Methodist church and will be greatly missed by all who know her.  She leaves a husband and several children, all of whom are married but one boy.  The family has the sympathy of the writer.  She was laid to rest in the Pleasant Ridge Cemetery, with funeral services conducted by Rev. J. M. Putnam.  Mr. Bennett, of Pulaski undertaker in charge.
