"The Sabbath Recorder", Vol 40, No 18, p 8, May 1, 1884.

In Ashaway, R. I., April 17, 1874, of heart disease, Elizabeth Babcock, daughter of Peleg and Hannah Almy, and widow of the late Jacob D. Babcock. She was born in Portsmouth, R. I., April 23, 1803, and married Jacob D. Babcock April 19, 1825. After a residence of about three years in Cornwall, Orange county, N. Y., they moved into the house in Ashaway which has been her home for nearly fifty-six years. Mrs. Babcock has had a family of seven children, three of whom survive her.

She was the tenth child of a family of fifteen children, whose longevity was quite remarkable. Her father lived to the ripe age of 92 years; her mother 85, and she herself nearly 81. Two brothers and three sisters survive her, aged respectively 71, 74, 79, 91 and 93 years.

Her father was a revolutionary soldier; her husband early identified himself with the Abolitionists, also with the temperance cause, and she heartily sympathized with him in these national reforms. She was baptized in early life at Portsmouth; coming to this place she united with the Seventh-day Baptist Church of Hopkinton City, during the pastorate of Eld. John Green, of which church she remained a member until death. The last day of her life she was able to go about the house and out into the open air. When the summons came from the other world, she only asked for rest, 'Let me rest,' and that night the weary mother rested.

A busy, useful life had finished its course among us. She was a lover of knowledge, a friend of the oppressed, a kind neighbor, a good and faithful mother, and her intelligent and more than ordinarily pleasant face will not soon be forgotten by those who knew her. Funeral services were attended in the First Seventh-day Baptist church of Hopkinton. The floral offerings were appropriate and beautiful.
