About Mariah Louisa Longstreet

Mrs. LONGSTREET has been confined to her room several months and bore her suffering patiently and with Christian resignation. She was a lady of rare and varied accomplishments, and in her death Gainesville loses a bright ornament in society. Her maiden name was GARLAND, a daughter of General John GARLAND, of the United States army, and a distinguished citizen of Virginia. She was born on the 16th day of March, 1827, at Fort Snelling,Minn., and was married to General LONGSTREET in Lynchburg, VA, on March 8th, 1848. She accompanied the general while engaged in the Mexican war. She was not unaccustomed to rumors of war or the din and smoke of battle for she was near to the general while his sword gleamed for four long years in defense of his country during the civil war. Prior to this time she was on the frontier with her husband, where he was engaged fighting Indians. She leaves five children - four sons, John Garland, Robert Lee, James and Randolph, and one daughter, Lula.
