Caroline Phinney Like
January 28, 1829–May 3, 1907

Mrs. Caroline Like, the wife of Mr. Peter Like, died at the home of her son, Mr. P. M. Like, a short distance east of Monticello, last Friday evening, May 3rd, at 6:30 o'clock. Mrs. Like had been in failing health for some time, and her death was not unexpected by her relatives and friends. The funeral services were conducted at the home of Mr. P. M. Like last Sunday afternoon, by Rev. Perkins Slocum the pastor of the Methodist Episcopal church and interment was had in the East Monticello cemetery. Mrs. Like had been a resident of Jones County for about forty-three years. Her maiden name was Caroline Phinney. She was born January 28, 1829, at Boston, New York. In 1848 she was married in the state of her nativity to Mr Peter Like, and they came to Iowa in 1864. They resided for a goodly number of years on Bowen's Prairie, but during the later years of life had been residents of Monticello. Mrs. Like was seldom seen away from her home. She was a good mother and devoted her attention to her children. She was called upon to mourn the death of six of her nine children previous to her own demise, which meant much sorrow in her life. She is survived by her husband, Mr. Peter Like and three children, Mr. P. M. Like of Lovell township, Mrs. Charles Guiles of Farley and Mrs. Edward Albinger of Monticello.
