     Obituary: Mrs. Eva Burness, Carroll County, Succumbs Near Mt. Airy: Carroll County's onlycentenarian, Mrs. Eva Burness, died at the home of Mrs. Oscar R. Hood, near Mt. Airy, Monday. Had she lived until next February, Mrs. Burness would have attained the age of 102. Funeral services will be held at the West Falls Methodist Episcopal church, at 2 o'clock this afternoon, with Rev. D'Arcy A. Littleton, pastor of Morgan Methodist Episcopal charge officiating. Burial will be in Loudon Park cemetery, Baltimore. Mrs. Burness sustained a fall four months ago from which she never fully recovered. Surviving Mrs. Burness is one son, William C. Burness, 1015 Fayette street, Baltimore, and a daughter, Mrs. M. E. Braungart, Reading, Pa. Mrs. Burness was born in Germany in 1830, and went to Baltimore as a Miss Baunerschmidt when she was 9 years old. In 1845, at the age of 15, Miss Baunerschmidt was married to Charles Burness, a sea captain. In 1880, Captain Burness, together with six members of his crew was lost at sea. Mrs. Burness remained in Baltimore a number of years after the death of her husband, but finally moved to Philadelphia, where she conducted a dry goods store. Preferring a country life, Mrs. Burness moved to a pint near Mount Airy nine years ago, and had since been making her home there. The aged woman reteined possession of all her faculties until a few months before her death. She enjoyed perfect health and when more than 100 years old was able to walk unaided. Mrs. Burness was a reader of the daily papers and was actively interested in church activities until some months prior to her fall. She possessed a remarkable memory. She was intimately acquainted with Stonewall Jackson and other men of prominence during the war between the States. "General Jackson" she remarked, "was a fine gentleman". Mrs. Burness also was an intimate friend of Abraham Lincoln, so intimate, she said, that she always addressed him by his first name. "Although somewhat rough looking in appearance, it took only a few words with the martyred President to learn that inwardly he was kind, gentle and a man of great wisdom," she declared. She conversed with the war-time President many times and held him in the highest esteem. Although a Southern sympathizer during the War of 1861, Mrs. Burness was opposed to slavery. Mrs. Burness attributed her advanced age to regular habits and a life marked with great activity.1
