She united in marriage to John A.Brook Aug.27, 1867 who proceeded her in death Dec.15, 1911. To this union five children were born: Mrs. Anna Marshall and J.C.Brook of this vicinity and Mrs. Lydia Nichols of Burlington, Iowa, one daughter who died in infancy in 1870 and Mrs. Nellie Allison whose death occurred in 1908. She professed her faith at the age of 18.

Funeral services were held at the home with interment in the family lot in the local cemetery.
