|Death: ||Feb. 1, 1878|
New York, USA
BARNES: In Norwich [Chenango Co., NY], Friday, Feb. 1st, 1878, of consumption, Sarah S. Brooks, daughter of Moses Brooks, of Rockdale, and wife of Edwin R. Barnes, of Norwich. Of an honored old New England family--thoroughly educated, studious, cultured and intelligent--Mrs. Barnes was a woman of uncommon worth. Quiet, retiring, and unostentatious she was only known in a limited circle; but those who knew her saw in her only those qualities of mind and heart to be adored and loved. Emphasizing the words, we say she was a lady and a Christian. Pure, true, self-possessed and self-forgetful. Her death is a sore bereavement--a loss which God alone can repair. Devoted as a wife, faithful as a mother, queenly as a woman, trustful as a Christian, of few could it be more truly said, "she hath done what she could.." The husband, the motherless children, the parents and many relatives, share the sympathy of the community in this the hour of their great sorrow.
