The Columbus Journal, September 25, 1889
At Lincoln, Neb., Saturday, Sept., 21st, 7:45 a.m., of dropsy of the heart, Emma A., wife of J. A. Austin, aged 23 years, 5 months and 5 days.
The deceased was a daughter of J. W. Early, deceased, of this city, and was born in Unity, Columbiana county, O., April 15, 1866. At Council Bluffs, April 5, 1883, she was united in marriage to J. A. Austin. Her first son preceded her to the spirit world, the other son and only child, Earl Franklin, is left to mourn the departure of a loving mother to the unseen world.
The remains were brought from Lincoln Saturday last, and on Sunday afternoon at the M. E. church, Rev. J. V. Griswold (in the absence of the pastor, Rev. Powers, at conference), preached the funeral sermon to a large congregation of sympathizing friends. The body was laid to rest in the Columbus cemetery.
Mrs. Austin had been ailing for more than two years past, and for the last thirteen months of her life had been a patient sufferer, under her affliction. She was a member of the M. E. church and died peacefully, in the hope of a better life beyond.
The bereaved husband who has lost his life's companion, and the young son who will know no more the tender watchfulness of a loving mother--best of all earthly friends--have the sincerest sympathy of all their friends in this time of trial and grief.

The funeral of Emma A. Austin, wife of James Austin, occurred yesterday at 3 p.m. at the Methodist Episcopal church, Rev. J.V. Griswold officiating in the absence of the pastor, Rev. H.L. Powers. A large number of friends and relatives attended and followed the remains to the grave.
Emma A. Austin was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John W. Early, and was born at Unity, Ohio, April 15, 1866, being at the time of her death 23 years, 5 months and 5 days old. She came west with her parents while yet a little child, and April 5, 1883, was married to James Austin at Council Bluffs, Iowa. She was a member of the Methodist Episcopal church, and a worthy and lovable Christian woman. Last Saturday morning she died at her home in Lincoln, after a long and painful illness, leaving a husband and little boy five years of age to mourn her loss. Her remains were brought home to be laid by the side of her father's, who preceded her to the great beyond over a year ago. The bereaved family have the sympathy of the community in their loss of a beloved wife and daughter who was known and loved in the community in which she had lived so many years.
James A. Austin and Mrs. J.W. Early and family desire to express their thanks to the kind friends who manifested their sympathy and assisted in the last sad care taking of wife, daughter and sister, Emma A. Austin, whose remains were laid in their last resting place yesterday. Columbus, Nebraska, September 23.
