The Carter County Herald, November 24, 1938
     Friday night, November 18, 1938, marked the passing of the last member of a family who were numbered among Carter county's early settlers, when Mrs. Julia Gorman died at her home east of the city. Mrs. Gorman was the sister of Taylor and Washington Enix, both of whom were widely known and prominent in the affairs of the county. She, as the last of seven children born to Alfred Enix and Mary Miller. Her grandfather, Abraham Enix, was one of the early pioneers of this section.
     On her mother's side, her grandmother, Esther Henderson Miller, who died in 1884 at the age of 92 years, was early associated with the history of Olive Hill. Mrs. Gorman was born August 20, 1853. She had been ill two years and all that medical skill and careful care could do to save her were of no avail. When the Lord called she could do naught but answer. Like the Apostle Paul, she had finished her course and the time had come for her to take up a crown of righteousness and rest from her labors.
     She was a good neighbor. Condemned by none, loved by all. Aunt Julia walked strictly with the Man of Galilee. More than fifty years ago she joined the Old Christian conference church and through many adverse circumstances and much sorrow, she kept ever in the pathway that leads upward. She believed that all we could take from this world were the good deeds we done while here, and as we looked down upon her peaceful face, quiet in death and unmarked by any passing shadow, we could but come to the knowledge that the way to leave this world is to be good.
     She was laid to rest with her people in Miller cemetery a mile east of the city. She leaves to mourn her passing five children, Beulah and Otis of Olive Hill; Cecil of Hennessey, Oklahoma; Camby of Morehead and Harry of Hitchens. Funeral services were conducted at the home in the east end of the city, Sunday afternoon, in charge of the Henderson Funeral Home, by Rev. Beard, pastor of the Christian Church, assisted by Rev. Shouley pastor of the Nazarene Church, with burial in the family cemetery.
