In the year 1857 she moved with her first husband to Illinois where she lived till the death of her husband in the Civil war, when she moved back to Canada where she resided a few years, and then came to Michigan and settled on the farm where she died, although she had not continuously lived there. Many years ago she became a member of the Caledonia United Brethren church but later was transferred to the Parmalee class, and remained a faithful member of that class until called to her reward. She had been married three times and was the mother of nine children, five of whom, four daughters and one son, survive her. Six years ago she was injured by being run over by a runaway team of horses and never fully recovered from the injury. She bore her sufferings with patience and died peacefully in the triumphs of a living faith. The funeral services were conducted in the Caledonia United Brethren church by Ex-Bishop H. T. Barnaby, assisted by the writer. … O. LASH.
