COLVIN, MRS. - The many Greenville friends of the F. A. Colvin family residents of Greenville, but of recent years of Richmond, will be grieved to learn that Mrs. Colvin died at her home in that city Wednesday evening at 8:30 o'clock.  Her death occurred quite suddenly and came as an awful shock to the members of her family.  Miss Lura Colvin was to have arrived in Greenville Friday for a visit with Miss Bessie Tobias, and tomorrow evening Miss Tobias had expected to announce Miss Colvin's engagement to Mr. Howard Cromer, a prominent young attorney of Dayton, Ohio.  Mrs. Colvin was about 40 years of age, and she leaves to mourn her demise, a husband and one daughter, Miss Lura.  The remains will be taken to Fletcher for burial.--Greenville Tribune.
