Anna LAWRENCE BABCOCK was born May 22, 1823, died July 11, 1896, aged 73 years 1 month and 19 days. She married the venerable A. E. BABCOCK in 1839, and to them eleven children were born, nine of whom survive.
In early life Mother Babcock united with the United Brethern church, but after her marriage she attached herself to the Baptist church that she might walk hand in hand with her husband. She was a constant help to him in his work. During all the years of his ministry, when the country was new, and they were illy prepared in a financial way to support their large and growing family, she labored on uncomplainingly, encouraging her husband in his life's work, showing in this, as well as other matters, an unbounded confidence in the Lord that he would provide for his own.
Her life was devoid of show or affection. She was exceedingly kind to all in the home and her loving disposition and christian character were impressed upon all who knew her. Her parents having died when she was a mere child, she never knew what it was to have the tender care of parents, for this reason she always felt a deep interest in that unfortunate class of children known as orphans.
The funeral was held at Jordan Baptist church, the services being conducted by Rev. COOK, of Rochester and Rev. SMITH, of Argos.
