1855 in McDonough county, Ill. To this union was born nine children. Seven girls and two boys. Three of whom have gone on before to await the coming of mother on the other side of the river. She united with the Cumberland Presbyterian church when she was about 16 years of age and when she was 27 years old, united with the Christian church and remained a faithful believer until death. She was an actual church worker as long as she was in good health, and loved to be at the house of God, and with his people to praise his name. She leaves husband, six children and twenty grand children and four brothers and a host of other relatives and friends to mourn her loss. But what is our loss is her gain. Through over 52 years of wedded life together, she now awaits the coming of her husband on the other shore.
The funeral services were held at the Union church October 2, conducted by W. E. Jones. A large attendance of friends and neighbors but speak the respect in which she was held by all who knew her. May she rest in peace in the land of her Savior.
