On Friday, the 19th February, 1847, at her residence in Goochland county, Va., Mrs. MARY POWELL, relict of the late Wm. Powell, in the 66th year of her age. Those who knew Mrs. Powell best-and the number of her acquaintances was very great-are most ready to unite in her praise. As a wife, she was without a fault; as a mother, tender and indulgent; as a neighbor, kind and hospitable. No person ever performed the duties of life with more exactness, or more entirely in the spirit of a Christian. Her place in her own neighborhood can never be filled, and her neighbors already feel that they have met with an irreparable loss. She was one of the most charitable of human beings, and her charity was always bestowed in strict accordance with the spirit of the Scriptures: her left hand knew not what her right hand did. Her children may well mourn their loss; but they may mourn not as those who can not be comforted.

Horace Payne Buried Near Farm Where Life Was Spent.
  HARRISONBURG, VA., July 23.-Rockingham's only centenarian and one of the oldest residents of Virginia, Horace Payne, aged 105 years, was laid to rest today at Singers Glen, in the county where his entire life was spent. Payne died yesterday at the home of a niece.
  Spending his last years in a rather out-of-the-way part of the county and living a secluded life, few persons aside from those in the immediate neighborhood knew of the very remarkable man. Records produced by relatives, however, show that Payne was born in 1819.
  For many years, Payne and his mother conducted a tavern near the foot of the Alleghany Mountains on one of the leading routes to the West. Later he turned to farming and tilled the soil until advanced age forced him to give it up.
  Payn's mother married when she was 15 years of age, came to Rockingham from East Virginia. She lived to be nearly 100 years old.
  Of the family of twelve children, two now survive. The are, Mrs. John Wenger, of Dayton, and Henry Payne, of Waynesboro, both well up in the eighties.

   Norfolk, Va., June 17.--The announcement of the death of  former Judge William N. Portlock, one of the best-known citizens of Norfolk county, and widely known throughout the State was made from the family residence this morning at 8:15.

the funeral services will be held Sunday afternoon at 4 o'clock from his late residence, and the interment will be in the family burial ground at Portlock.
Judge Portlock's death was the result of an illness of three years duration. On May 7, 1908, he sustained a slight stroke of apoplexy, and while he practically recovered from the attack his health always remained poor. He suffered slow Bright's disease, which was directly the cause of his death.

During his illness and before he resigned from the bench th Governor designated Judge B. D. White to preside in the county circuit court most of the time, but when judge White was unable to preside bcause of other duties, Judge K. A. Bain, of the Portsmouth City Circuit Court, was designated by the Governor to officiate in the county court.
He was elected to the Norfolk county judgeship several consecutive terms by the Legislature.
Judge Portlock was a member of the Constitutional Convention of Virginia, session 1901-2. He was a descendant of the oldest and most prominent families of Norfolk, his ancestors having settled in the county early in the seventeenth century. They were active participants in the Revolutionary War.
He was born in Norfolk county and was reared on the farm of his father at Portlock. He was a student for several years at Bethel Military Academy, Fauquier county, this State. He was elected clerk of the old Circuit Court of Norfolk county July 4, 1877, an office which he held for seven years. He was at the same time county clerk in the city courts of Portsmouth for a period of six years, commissioner in chancery, commissioner of accounts and treasurer of the Norfolk county and Portsmouth ferries. he later entered the law department of the University of Virginia, and thereafter practiced his porfession in the city of Norfolk.
