Scranton Republican, Friday, January 30, 1903
The funeral of Mrs. Sarah A. Colwell was held yesterday afternoon and the large number who attended the obsequies attested to the high esteem in which this venerable pioneer was held by her friends and acquaintances.
Funeral services of a most impressive character were conducted at the home of her son, Fred T. Colwell, 110 Wyoming street, at 1:30, by Rev. H. F. Chafee, pastor of the First M. E. church. He preached a fitting eulogy of the deceased and referred to her many excellent traits of character.
A quartet consisting of W. D. Evans, Russell M. Shephard, Sadie Miller, and Mrs. H. P. Clark, sang "Rock of Ages" and "Abide With Me".
Several beautiful floral offerings were on the casket, which rested in the front parlor. Burial was made in Brookside cemetery. The pallbearers were John Steward, T. C. Robinson, A. Alney, P. Butler, D. W. Humphrey and N. Moore. The following from out of town were present: Mrs. Bone, Mr. and Mrs. P. P. Carter, Mr. Edward Whyte, Mr. Henry Whyte, of Scranton; Mr. G. W. Whyte and Miss E. Dolph, of Honesdale."
