    • "Mrs. C. L. Harrell Dies at Home Here
      Mrs. Charles L. Harrell, well known and beloved Bainbridge woman, passed away at her home Monday afternoon, March 12, following an illness of several years.
      The former Miss Olive Womack, Mrs. Harrell was born in Danville, Virginia. She possessed a nature that endeared herself to everyone, both here and in her native state of Virginia, who had the pleasure of knowing her. A member of the First Presbyterian Church, she was always interested in the work of her church and was especially interested in what was going on in her own community. She was a prominent citizen of Bainbridge and before ill health forced her to retire was interested in club work and many civic organizations.
      Mrs. Harrell will be very greatly missed, and her passing is mourned by everyone throughout this section.
      The deceased is survived by her husband, Charles L. Harrell of Bainbridge; four daughters, Mrs. C. A. Curnane, Mrs. Jane Edwards, Mrs. R. L. Rich of Bainbridge and Mrs. Sam Jenkins of Tarboro, N. C.; one son, Charles L. Harrell, Jr. of Yuma, Arizona; one brother J. C. Womack of Yancyville, N. C.; and two sisters, Mrs. W. T. Daniel, Sutherlin, Virginia and Mrs. George Lewis, Mountainview, California.
      Funeral services for the deceased were held at 10:30 Wednesday morning, March 14, from the First Presbyterian Church in Bainbridge, with Rev. W. D. Stewart and Rev. Lewis H. Wright officiating.
      The active pall bearers were: George R. Tyson, Leonard F. Reynolds, Melvin Nussbaum, Bernard Nussbaum, Gordon Jester, Glenn Griffin, Allen Ramsey and Stuart McKenzie.

    Notes 
    • Olive was orphaned at an early age, both her parents dying before she was ten years old. She was the youngest of six, and was raised by her older sisters. She moved down to Decatur County, Georgia with her sister Susie's family. There, she met and married Charlie Harrell. For the first few years, they lived in Charlie's mother's boarding house. Shortly after the birth of their daughter, Cecil, they moved to a house on Shotwell Street.

      Interestingly, she was listed in the 1900 census at the bottom as a single boarder in the household of her mother-in-law. A marriage certificate shows she and Charles were married two years earlier. At the time the census was taken, she would have been six months pregnant with her first child, Cecil!
