"The Sabbath Recorder", Vol 73, No 16, p 510, Oct. 14, 1912.

Mary Jane, eldest daughter of Roswell and Mary Ann Crandall Dowse, was born June 27, 1837, at South Brookfield, N. Y.

Of the six daughters, all lived to maturity, and four still survive.

At the age of fifteen she was baptized by Rev. Eli S. Bailey, and received into the Seventh-day Baptist church at West Edmeston, N. Y.

She attended school at DeRuyter Institute; taught school in her home town for a few years, then came to Wisconsin on a visit and was engaged to teach the village school at Walworth. In October, 1861, she was married to Carleton W. Crumb. Of their six children two died in infancy. When the family moved to Milton to give the children better advantages in school, their letters were brought to the Milton Seventh Day Baptist Church from Walworth. The eldest daughter, Dr. Gertrude Crumb, passed away in 1908.

After five months of sickness with Bright's disease, Mrs. Crumb died September 15, 1912. The messenger was welcomed, for her house was set in order. She bore the days of weariness and pain, however, with unfaltering good cheer. She was given the most loving care by her dear ones. She is survived by her husband, one son, and two daughters.

She was a woman of strong character and great heart. Her principles were granite. She was a wise counselor and a true friend.

Simple services were held at the home, September 18, conducted by Pastor Randolph.
