1914 Obituary
Nicholas J. Wallace and Sarah Roberson Wallace



Romance of an Aged Bufort [sic] Couple Has Climax in a Double Funeral

Lawrenceville, Ga.  May 6- (Special).

     The bodies of Nicholas J. Wallace and his wife, an ageed couple of Buford, who had often expressed the desire that they might died together, were interred side by side today in Zion's Hill cemetery.

     Mrs. Wallace, about 70 years old, died suddenly Sunday night and arrangements were being made to bury her remains Tuesday when her husband succumbed to his great grief over her demise and died of a broken heart.  Touched by the bitter-sweet rmoance that joined the aged couple in life and linked them in death, relatives and friends determined that the attachment should be symbolized by a double funeral.

     Mr. Wallace was the oldest of several brothers, one of them being the late J. D. Wallace of Lawrenceville.  Mrs. Wallace was a Miss Robertson and was reared in the southern part of Gwinnett County.
