A Tribune to the Memory of Mrs. Jane Elliott

Mrs. Jane Elliott was born in Upson County, Ga., on June 26, 1829. She became the wife of Stephen Elliott on March 24, 1861. Her home from that time was in Pike County, until she came to Barnesville in 1866 after the death of her husband.

She was the mother of four children, two of whom died in infancy. The daughter, Mrs. Permelia Wilson, died several years ago as did also her step-daughter, Mrs. Mary J. Harris. Her son, Mr. M. M. Elliott, survives her.

These facts and dates cover the events of her eighty-six years but the record of her long, useful life deserves more than this condensed notice.

Mrs. Elliott was a good woman. She joined the Methodist church early in life and illustrated a practical religion day by day. Before she became enfeebled by the natural weakness of advancing years, she was regular in her attendance at church and often her heart became full to overflowing under the influence of the spirit.

She was the last surviving member of a large family of brothers and sisters, a family remarkable for long life and consistent purpose.

Her father was James Means, of Upson county, who married Mary A. McKenzie. This couple lived to old age in honor and usefulness. Nine children came to them, one son died in young manhood, but four sons and four daughters lived to rear large families and die honored and respected in the communities where they lived.

James Means, the father of this family accumulated a large estate. Before his death he divided it among his children, the only cost of the division being five dollars paid to an auctioneer. It was a matter of pride in this family that there was never a member addicted to the use of intoxicants, and also that there had never been any unharmonious relations among them. Their manner in the order of their ages were Mrs. Eleanor Smith, John N (or H) Means, Mrs. Sarah Hickson, Dr. M. H. Means, James A. Means, Mrs. Mary P. Willis, William Means, and Mrs. Jane Elliott. Each of this group lived far beyond the three score years and ten and left sons and daughters who continue to illustrate in their lives the principles of upright living and honest dealings practiced by their parents.

Upson, Pike, Monroe, and Houston counties, as well as other places, have felt the influence for good of this family.

Mrs. Elliott was a loyal friend, a good neighbor, a loving mother, and a devoted sister. She served well her day and generation; she has gone to her reward.

(The author of Mrs. Elliott's obituary was Mrs. A. M. Lambdin, who later became editor of "History of Lamar County.").

An article entitled "In Memory of James W. Means" (from an undated, unidentified newspaper) states:

"Judge J. W. Means, an honored and beloved member of this, Montgomery Lodge #31 Free and Accepted Masons was taken by death from us March 19th, 1917 and now dwells with the Celestial Lodge in the great beyond. He was born in Pike Co. May 29th, 1835 and was nearly eighty-two years of age. All his life except two years in Atlanta and four years of the Civil War was spent in this County and his life for honor and usefullness was such during all this time that any of us may study it with care and seek to profit by the lesson that it brings."

"He was for about sixty years a Mason and for many years was Secretary and Treasurer of this Lodge, faithfully and with ability performing the duties of that office up to a few years ago, when on account of his failing health, he was compelled to give it up."

"Judge Means was not only a good Mason but was that type of man who was good in every place of life that he was called to service. He was an exceptionally well balanced man. He was very industrious and economical, yet he had plenty of time for public service and was never too busy to talk to a friend or brother or to help in any worthy cause. He was liberal indeed to the Lodge, the School, the town, the church or to a worthy, distressed brother."

"He was a man of broad capacity as shown by the offices of public trust that he filled. He was a Member of the Legislature from Pike County, County Commissioner and Ordinary for nearly twenty years, besides those numerous smaller places of trust and service, any work that it was his duty to perform was always attended to. He was dependable."

"Judge Means was something of a Philosopher, and we will record here some of his sayings and traits that illustrate his character better than any words we can frame. He believed a true man should go forth on his own responsibility and stand in his own strength, this he illustrated by saying that "A boy would not be any account until he became his own Daddy." He reasoned that even if a boy failed in his efforts he could try again and profit from his failure and he would always talk of his trying and doing better rather than censure for the failure. Judge always believed in being punctual in the discharge of any task. When he would see any one rushing or hurrying to some place he would say that if he had been going there he would have started a little sooner. As consequence his duties were never delayed and his work was never behind."

"Judge Means believed in attending to whatever you proposed to be doing. On one occasion he found a merchant who had just set up in business loitering around away from his place of business and asked him if he had any sugar to sell. Judge told him that he did not want to buy sugar but wanted to admonish him that if he expected to sell sugar he had better stay where the sugar was. The lesson was not lost to the Merchant and went home to others who heard of the kind and gentle reproof. The Judge was always at his post."

"The writer has on numerous occasions borrowed books or other things from the Judge who would frequently tell you plainly that he wanted you to bring the borrowed article back when you were through with it and he would with a smile state as reason that he might have the article on hand when you wanted to borrow it again or possibly some one else might want to borrow it in the meantime".217

Her obituary of 1 Nov 1924 states: (from The Ledger,)

Meansville, Georgia, 1 November 1924

(Vol. 2, No. 21, p. 2)

On August the 8th, 1924, the seraphic soul of Mrs. G. Van Harvey left its frail tenement in answer to the call of the Master to come up higher. Her husband and four children, mother, sisters and brothers, other relatives and friends were present at her departure and could say, without murmur, "The Lord gave and the Lord hath taken away, Blessed be the name of the Lord!" The funeral services were at the Baptist church at Meansville, Ga., where she had been a member since early girlhood. Her body was laid to rest by the side of her father, the late J. L. Alldredge, who preceded her to the heavenly home, several years. She possessed the quiet virtures [sic] that adorn the home and private life. In the home she was queen, loved and honored by her husband, revered and adored by her children, who rise up now to call her blessed. Through many years of suffering she was ever patient, having an abiding faith in Him who doeth all things well.

Mabel would have been 42 years old on August 10th (died on the 8th) and a great part of these years was spent as a faithful, consistent church member, ever ready to serve where she could. As a friend and neighbor she was loyal and true, but it was in her own home she counted for most. Her advice was often sought by those dear to her and always wisely given. She is not dead, only sleeping, and when her Saviour calls the sleep will have passed away and she will answer "here am I" and then enter into that heavenly abode where all the saints of all ages will be gathered and there through eternity hers will be the glory life.

In November. 1901 she was married to Mr. G. Van Harvey, to this union 4 children were born, one girl Mrs. Al Jones of Texas and 3 boys James, Manry [sic] and Jake all of Atlanta, she was a devoted wife and mother. The grief stricken family has our deepest sympathy especially the husband children, and the mother. The writer would say to the family and to all who knew her, to take the God she served as your God and her life as your example and there will be no doubt of the promised reward, when we shall be ushered into the presence of our Lord.
