Barber County Kansas
Died: Julia I. Clark, wife of T.C. Clark of this city, died last Thursday, October 26, 1899, after a lingering illness from consumption.
The funeral services were held from the family residence on Friday and the remains laid to rest in Highland cemetery. Rev. J.F. Irwin, pastor of the M.E. church, of which the deceased was a faithful member, preached the sermon.
Mrs. Clark was 24 years, 11 months and 1 day of age. She leaves a husband and two small children - a boy and a girl - to mourn her early death. The death is especially sad in that it leaves two little ones without a mother's tender care.
We join with the community in extending to the bereaved husband sincerest heartfelt sympathy.
