News came Tuesday morning of the death of Mrs. Lydia Marks, who went to Cooperstown the past fall with her son, LeRoy Marks, to spend the winter, but expected to return to her own home as soon as the weather had settled. We extend our sympathy to the sons' families in their breavement. Mrs. Marks will be brought here for burial in South Valley Union Cemetery.
