Wilmington Morning Star
An interesting and valuable century-old record, the original funeral notice of the first husband of Mary Baker G. Eddy, Founder of the Christian Science church, was discovered in a curio shop in New York a few days ago by a Wilmingtonian and has been presented to Louis T. Moore, executive secretary of the Chamber of Commerce. It is now on display at the Chamber's office in the Cape Fear Hotel building. The notice should prove interesting to both members of the Christian Science church and the Masonic fraternity.
With a mourning band of broad black cloth, the paper bears the following notice: "The citizens of Wilmington are respectfully invited to attend the funeral of Major George W. Glover, deceased, at 6 o'clock p.m. from the Hanover House, to the usual place of interment, June 28th, 1844."
A century ago daily newspapers were the exception. When deaths occurred, it was customary to send a written notice from house to house, announcing the time for the funeral. The original "Manuscript Invitation of the Citizens of Wilmington, North Carolian to attend the funeral of Major Glover" is of value in that it serves to prove his military title, which has been misrepresented by some biographers.
