the privation most keenly, her pastor, by her request, would frequently
visit her upon Saturday afternoon and read to her the sermon prepared
for the following day.

Lake County. She was a native of Massachusetts and removed to the west
in 1844. She resided here for better than a quarter of a century, and had
the affection of a wide circle of friends.
