For 31 years and 1 month she lived the widow of Major William McClellan. At his death the care and responsability of raising and educating a young and growing family devolved on her. She has left four daughters and one son. They have been and still were the objects of her love and the subjects of her constant prayers.

She suffered much for two years previous to her death, with inflammatory rheumatism. Her affliction she bore with Christian fortitude and patience. She frequently remarked "it's allright ... it was the work of her heavenly father and if it was Gods will, that she should suffer it, it was hers also." When lying on her bed, she would repeat many passages of scripture. She died with these promises on her lips. They were in her heart.

They should light over her brightest days, and illuminate her darkest. She selected her funeral text: Job 19:25,26,27. She sleeps in Jesus, sleeps to awake again. Amen. -- Knoxville and Nashville papers please copy.

Her children were: John Sevier McClellan m: Susan Gregg; Ruth Ann McClellan m: Richard Campbell Sevier Brown; Catherine Barbara McClellan m: George C. Pickett; Martha Eliza McClellan m: John Gregg; Mary Jane McClellan m: Gabriel Jones Raines; Cornelia Chambers McClellan m: Charles Edward Hynson.

"MARSHALL -- In Memoriam -- Among the list of passengers reported lost by the burning of the steamer Stonewall, on the Mississippi river below St. Louis, was Mrs. M.E. Gregg; wife of our fellow citizen, Col. John Gregg.
The news of her loss falls with crushing weight upon her lonely and disconsolate husband, who was daily expecting her arrival, and the hearts of her many devoted friends and relatives in our community."

"MARSHALL -- Mrs. M. E. Gregg -- What a sad fate was hers, and what a fatality has seemingly pursued the family! A few years since no happier household could be found in all our Southern country than that of Colonel John Gregg's. But death, the merciless despoiler, came, and one by one the children were borne away, leaving the aged husband and wife alone around their desolated hearthstone. A few months since, they went to Missouri for the improvement of their health. Business called the husband back to his old home,and the wife was embarked upon the steamer Stonewall to rejoin him. When the joy of again seeing her was seemingly so soon to be realized came the news that she was lost! Who can picture the bereavement and anguish of Co. Gregg on receiving the heart-rendering information that the dear partner of his bosom -- the mother of his children who had sunk into the tomb >leaving them to mourn with and sustain each other -- had met with so terrible a fate? The hearts of all our people are deeply moved with sympathy for him in his sorrow, and loneliness. May God give him strength to bear the blow!

Mrs. Gregg was an estimable Christian woman, and though the summons of her Savior was so sudden and unexpected, it did not find her unprepared. The long life which she had devoted to God, was a sure passport from earth to Heaven. In that blissful land she is now singing the new song, and wearing white robes and glittering crown of the redeemed."

Lida had hoped to be buried by her daughters in Marshall, but the third and last telegram to her husband from St. Louis, dated November 4th, announced that "Parties returned; no hope of recovering remains."

The following is inscribed on a Monument in the Marshall city cemetery: "A Mother Comes Home to Her Daughters. In memory of M. Eliza McClellan, wife of John Gregg, Born September 16, 1818, Lost on the Steamer Stonewall, October 27, 1869." The monument lies between those of her husband and daughters Nola and Alla, all enclosed within an iron fence in the Gregg Family Burying Ground.

They had three children who all preceeded them in death. Willie, who died in the Civil War; Nola E. who had married John Newton not a year before; and Alla who died 3 months after her sister.
