Birth: Aug. 20, 1859

Death: Jan. 26, 1927

Mrs. A. J. McFarland, an aged and respected resident of Payette county, passed away at her home near the Falk Store bridge on the Payette river, Wednesday morning at 10 o'clock, after an illness of some duration.

Sarah Elizabeth Woodward was born at Palmyra, Iowa, August 20, 1859. She grew to womanhood in her native state and received her education there. Then she came to Boise to teach school in 1880, later coming to New Plymouth where she met her husband, A. J. McFarland, and was united to him in marriage November 2, 1882.

In addition to her husband she is survived by three children, Athur W. McFarland, of Englewood, Calif., Walter J. McFarland, of Middleton, Idaho, and Mabel E. Pomeroy, of New Plymouth. She also leaves two sisters and one brother, Mrs. Anna Rinearson, of Boise; Mrs. Kate S. Glaze, of New Plymouth, and Rev. Charles F. Woodward, of Allamoe, California. Nine grandchildren also mourn her going.

The editor of the Independent did not have the privilege of knowing Mrs. McFarland personally, but so many testimonials to her wonderful character and true womanly qualities have been given us that we know she must have been a woman of rare personality whose presence radiated good and nobleness where-ever she went. To the grief stricken husband and family we extend sincere sympathy.

Funeral arrangements are awaiting word from distant relatives. (The Payette Independent, Thursday, January 27, 1927)
