1900 Oct 25 OBIT: The Rockville Republican MRS. ABNER CHEW
Sarah Frances Chew was born in Orange county, Ind., April 2, 1832, died Oct. 12 1900; aged 68 years, 6 months and 11 days.
She was married to Abner Chew in 1852. To this union were born 12 children, 4 died while young and preceded her to a better land; 8 are living - 4 sons and 4 daughters, all of Parke county, except one son of Long Beach, Cal.
Sister Chew gave her heart to Jesus in early life. She was converted in 1850 at a camp meeting held at the old camp ground near Annapolis, and united with the U.B. church, in which she lived a consistent Christian life until she was called from labor to reward. Her membership was at the Leatherwood chapel. In the death of Sister Chew the church has lost a good neighbor, the husband a good wife, the children a loving mother. She had been in declining health for a number of years, but she bore it patiently and was often heard to express a desire to leave this vale of sorrow and tears and go to joys immortal, where sorrow never comes.
The remains were followed to the Leatherwood cemetery and laid to rest until the resurrection morn, services conducted by Rev, B.F. Low.
