Newspaper Clippings for
February, 1878

from a loose clipping, source unknown 9 February 1878
The melancholy news reached here at noon Saturday of the death of the wife of Frank Backus, although it was not unexpected as she had been at the point of death for two or three days. She was much loved and respected by all who knew her, she leaves a child two weeks old. The heartfelt sympathies of the community are with Mr. Backus, "although his loss was her gain."
