-Obituary.- Clara L. Grigsby was born in Owensville, Ind., September 5th, 1871, and moved with her parents to Sullivan, Ind., June 18, 1884. She was married to Maurice Eaton, June 1, 1892. She joined the M.E. Church at Walker's Chapel on December 8, 1892. She was converted in February, 1893, at a meeting held at New Lebanon by Rev. F.A. Lester, pastor, and Evangelist Roller. She was among the first to give her heart to God. She had less than a year to testify to the cleansing power of Jesus' blood. In her own home her life was a ray of sunshine and a constant comfort and reminder of the beauty of holiness. For more than a year she was a constant sufferer. She was peaceful and hopeful. God called her to rest on January 1, 1894, aged 22 years, 3 months and 26 days. In the death of Clara the church has lost a true member, the parents a loving daughter and the husband a devoted companion.
