She experienced the forgiveness of her sins in her 13th year and, for more than 57 years, lived a worthy member of the church. She was the mother of twelve children, eight of whom are alive and attended her in her last sickness and death, six sons and two daughters. Her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren number 95, about 80 of whom are living and attended her funeral, besides numerous other relatives, I have never attended the funeral of a person with so many kindred. She was believed by all who knew her. Many of the old settlers of this part of the county, and others, extend their sympathies to the family, Sermon by Elder Nathan Potter. Text, Malachi III, 2.
