GROVER.- April 17th, 1885, aged 52 years, 2 months, and 11 days Caroline M. wife of William S. Grover, of Lafayette township, Bremer county.
Mrs. Grover was born in the town of Barre, state of New York February 6th, 1833. She removed to the state of Illinois, when a child, where she grew up to womanhood. Was married to Mr. Grover November 10, 1858. In the spring of 1865 they removed to Iowa and located on the farm in Lafayette township, this county, where for twenty years they toiled together, building themselves a comfortable house, and surrounding themselves with many conveniences and comforts. Mrs. Grover was the daughter of Methodist parents, and under the christian counsel and
Godly example of that Methodist home, she was led to cherish christian principles and live a christian life. She was a great sufferer for ten long years, and while she very much regretted her privation of church privileges and communion, she bore the enforced denial with christian resignation. She manifested a chastined and subdued spirit in her last days and longed to lay her painful body down, and enter
into the rest prepared by the merciful and loving Father. She was a mother of four children, two of whom had already preceeded her to the better world. One son and one daughter together with the husband of her years remain.
The great respect and esteem in which Mrs. Grover was held was strongly evinced by the very large attendance of neighbors and friends at the funeral. The services were conducted by Rev. M. H. Smith, of Waverly. Interment in Andrew's cemetery.
