On Monday of this week, shortly after noon Mrs. Julia Connaughton passed from this life at the home of her daughter, Mrs. S. A. DeLair, a few miles southwest of Coldwater. She had been a sufferer for some time past
and for several months it had been known she could not last long. She passed quietly away, having lived a quiet though useful life and having passed the three score years and ten mile stone.

Julia Agnes was born at Peoria Ill., July 7, 1844, died at the home of her daughter in Comanche county on July 7, 1919, aged just 75 years to the day. She was married to Capt. Henry Fritz, a veteran of the Civil
war, on April 26, 1866, and with him moved to Iowa that year. Twenty years later - in 1886 - they moved to Kansas and the deceased had resided there ever since. Two children were born to this union, Mrs. Alta Shimer, whose home is in Michigan, and Mrs. S. A. DeLair of this county. Captain Fritz died on November 11, 1901.

On November 14, 1914, the deceased was united in marriage with Probate Judge Owen Connaughton, who died just a year ago - in July 1918. Mrs. Connaughton united with the church in her childhood and lived a
consistent Christian life throughout. She was a woman who had numerous friends and many hearts will be saddened at her death.

The funeral was held in this city on Tuesday afternoon at the Methodist Episcopal church, conducted by the pastor, Rev. L. F. Abernathy, who was assisted by Rev. Porter. Burial was made in Crown Hill cemetery.
