THE WESTERN STAR, 22 June 1906

At 5:30 p.m. on Monday, June 18, 1906, at the home of her son, Ira D. Powell, in Coldwater, Kansas, the earthly life of Mrs. Z. T. Powell was ended. She had been unconscious for nearly three days and death to her
came as a relief from her bodily sufferings. For six years she had suffered from diabetes, but not until about three months ago had the disease caused any serious alarm. The sufferer bore her affliction with remarkable patience. Her fortitude during the hours of severest physical endurance was evidence of a brave and noble spirit. To her, death had no terrors, for she was prepared to die.

Barbara Cain was born in Pottsville, Penn., on June 4, 1849. On October 17, 1860, she was married to Zachary T. Powell in Oshkosh, Wis. Mr. and Mrs. Powell moved from Washington to Nebraska and later (1900) to Comanche-co., Kans. Since that time they spent a couple of years in Oregon. They returned to this city about a year ago. Of the union five children were born, three of whom are living and with the father, were
present at the time of death and at the burial services. The surviving children are: Ira D. and Ola A. Powell and Mrs. Harry Kimple, all of this city.

Deceased had for many years been a member of the Methodist Episcopal church. She was esteemed by all who knew her for her kindness of disposition and her devotion to every duty as a wife and mother. Funeral
services were conducted at the home at 2:30 p.m. on Tuesday and were in charge of Rev. W. L. Roberts of the Presbyterian church, after which interment was made in the Coldwater cemetery.
