Barber County Kansas
Mrs. Elizabeth Brown, wife of William Brown, of Sharon township, departed this life on Saturday, May 31, 1902.
Mrs. Brown had been a great sufferer sometime before her death and for the past ten months she was confined to her bed a greater part of the time. Through all her sickness she was patient and cheerful and enjoyed talking about the future that awaited her.
She had lived life for many years, having been converted at the age of 15 years.
The funeral services were held at the Enon Baptist church, Sunday afternoon at 2 o'clock the sermon being preached by Rev. J. J. Griffin, pastor of the Baptist church of Medicine Lodge. Text: Revelations, 14:3.
The whole community feel that they have lost a friend and they showed their respect to the departed one and the family from the large procession that followed the remains to its last resting place.
This is one of the early Barber county families. Mr. Brown is a man whom everybody is proud to call his friend and our citizens all join in extending deep sympathy in his loss.
The family and relatives extend their thanks to the many friends who was so kind in helping in this hour of bereavement.
