THE WESTERN STAR, 27 January 1905

Lydia Jane Haydock was born at Richland, Jefferson-co., Iowa, on July 17, 1861, and died near Protection, Comanche-co., Kansas, at 8 a.m. on Monday, January 16, 1905, aged 53 years, 5 months and 29 days. She was married to Alfred M. Haydock on October 28, 1869. Their home was at Ashland, Wapello-co., Iowa, until November, 1901, when they moved to Kansas, locating on a farm 4 miles north of Protection. She was the mother of four children, all of whom are living, as follows: Lavant D. Haydock, Protection, Kans.; Mrs. Ethel C. Rumley, Tulare, Calif.; Alvis W. Haydock , Kerne, Calif.; Leavitt A. and Wray N. Haydock, Protection, Kans.

Mrs. Haydock was converted in the winter of 1869-70 and united with the Methodist Episcopal church, and during the remainder of her life she remained a faithful and earnest Christian. She had been a quiet sufferer
for a long time and toward the close of her sickness her suffering became intense. She declared her strength and help to be "in the Lord, without whom life would sometimes seem almost unendurable."

Deceased was a loving and devoted wife and mother, a kind and considerate neighbor and a blessing to the community in which she lived. She will be greatly missed by all her neighbors as well as by the bereaved relatives.

Funeral services were conducted at the M. E. church in Protection on Saturday, January 21, at 1:30 p.m., Rev. C. E. Williams, her pastor, officiating, after which the remains were taken to Ashland, Clark-co., Kansas, for interment by the side of her husband who died a year ago. Rev. Geo. Watts, pastor of the M. E. church of Ashland, conducted the burial service.
