Faribault Central Republican - July 1, 1863
Died, in Medford, Steele Co., Mn., on Saturday morning, June 20, of disease of the heart. Formerly of Sanbornton, N. H. in the 62nd year of her age. In the death of this estimable lady, a husband mourns the loss of an affectionate wife - her children, a kind and gentle mother -society, one of its most valuable members and the church one of its brightest ornaments. She died, as she had lived, in the triumphant hope of a blessed immortality beyond the grave. N. B. New Hamphshire papers will please copy.
