Clinton MO - Mrs. E. C. Austin died April 13, 1907 in Bethlehem township. Born September 11, 1844 in Virginia. Married to W. H. Austin Feb. 2, 1864; 15 children, 10 girls and five boys. Fourteen survive her. She was one of these good old Virginia Christian mothers and devoted to her family. Since the death of her husband in January, her health seemed to fail. She was 62. She made a profession of religion when she was 17 and joined the Chestnut Grove Baptist Church in Virginia. She lived to see her children, five sons and ten daughters, all to be grown, except the oldest; all members of the same church and all married, except the youngest. They were all present with their devoted mother as she gently and quietly passed away, except the three sisters - Mrs. Willie Ann Ballard, Mrs. Lucelia Ballard and Mrs. Ella Ballard, of Charlottesville, Va. Those present were the four brothers of Clinton and seven sisters; Mrs. Allie Coons of Clinton; Mrs. Mary Chipley of St. Louis; Mrs. Nettie Grant of Montana; Mrs. Jennie Whitfield of Warrensburg; Mrs. Grace Botts of Sedalia; Mrs. Fannie Wood of LaMonte, and Mrs. Allie Pemberton of Midland, Texas.
