Died, at the home of her son, N. P. Brown, May 5, 1900, Mrs. A. G. Camp, aged 79 years, 11 months and 13 days.

Martha Simpson was born in Pennsylvania, May 22, 1820. In 1839 she was married to James Brown. To them ten children, six boys and four girls, were born. The following survive her: A. A. Brown of Des Moines, D. S. Brown of Dexter, Ia., T. G. Brown of Shickley, N. P. Brown of Carleton, Mrs. Jennie R. Allen of Geneva, Mrs. Lizzie M. Rider of Ira, Ia., Mrs. Cynthia E. Witmer of Springdale, Ia., and Mrs. Mary E. Smith of Summit.

In 1853 she moved to Wisconsin and in 1871 she removed to Iowa, where her husband died in the fall of 1873. She came to Nebraska in September, 1881, and was married to A. G. Camp of Geneva, January 17, 1882. He died June 4, 1898. Since then she had lived with her children.

Grandma Camp had been ill for several weeks. All of her daughters were with her a great share of the time, doing everything in their power to alleviate her suffering. Her youngest daughter was here in the early part of spring, but could only stay a week. A. A. Brown of Des Moines was in Shickley during the funeral services, but could not find anyone who knew of his mother's death. His grief was so great when he found that he could not see his mother's face, that with the aid of kindly hands the body was exhumed. With the exception of these two all her children were present at her burial.

Grandma Camp leaves besides her children and grandchildren a host of friends to miss her. The writer was with her six weeks last winter while at the home of her daughter, Mrs. D. E. Smith, and shall always remember her as an example of patience and Christian fortitude. In the blue mountains of our dim childhood, towards which we ever turn and look, stand the mothers who marked out to us from thence our life; the most blessed age must be forgotten ere we can forget the warmest heart.

The funeral services were held at the Summit church and were conducted by Rev. Mr. Metcalf, assisted by Rev. F. A. Colony of Geneva. The body was interred in the Summit cemetery.

We desire to thank the many friends who so kindly assisted us during the illness and burial of our dear mother, especially the choir for the beautiful songs they sang and those who made the floral offerings.
