Mrs. Elizabeth Holt, an estimable Christian lady, died last Tuesday morning at the home of her son, James R. Holt, four miles northwest of Slater, Missouri, aged 88 years, 7 months and 19 days. The funeral services were held Wednesday morning at the First Baptist church of
Slater, and her remains laid to rest in the city cemetery. The deceased was a native of North Carolina and was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Lake. When about a year old she came with her parents to Marion co., Mo., where she was married in 1839 to Mr. J. D. Holt, who died many years ago. Eight children who live at various places in Missouri, Kansas and Oklahoma survive. There are also 42 grandchildren, 90 great grandchildren and 3 great, great, grandchildren. Mrs. Holt had been a
member of the Baptist church for 73 years, having united with that church when she was 15 years of age. After the death of her husband, which was more than 40 years ago, she has made her home with her children, and for the past 16 years has lived with J. R. Holt. The
services at the church, conducted by J. Edwin Norvell, assisted by the pastor, Rev. W. P. Clark, were largely attended by the friends and neighbors of the family, who were present to pay the last tribute to the aged lady who has passed to the mysterious beyond, where sorrow and death are not.
(Obituary from the Slater, Mo. Exchange, Mrs. Holt was the mother of Mrs. W. I. Brown of Coldwater.)
