Birth: Sep. 11, 1848
Death: Aug. 3, 1900

Elizabeth Caroline Thomas was born in Indiana, September 11, 1848. She was married to George Wagner September 12, 1867. Immediately after marriage the young couple moved to Iowa, settling on the farm
in Prairie township, Fremont county, which remained their home until death separated them. Friday, August 3, Mr. Wagner went to the house and missing his wife began a search for her, finding her at 11 a.m. in the orchard near the hen house whither she had gone, evidently, to make some repairs as she had a hammer in one hand and some nails in the other when found. She had been afflicted with what simulated epilepsy, having had three attacks during the past year. It is supposed that she was attached by a fourth stroke at the time of her demise.

The funeral was held at the Nishna Valley M. E. church, the pastor, Rev. Graves, conducting the services. The remains were returned to the home and interred in a private cemetery on the farm. Four children had already been bruied there. Three other children, two sons, one of whom is married, and a married daughter, together with the husband mourn the loss of the departed mother and wife.
