New York, USA
|Death: ||Apr. 25, 1911|
She was born at North Java, N.Y. February 3, 1859, where she spent the early years of her life, coming to Lowville with her parents in April, 1882.
On December 27, 1883, she was united in marriage to Eaton Samuel Henderson and in a few days they went to housekeeping on his farm in Greenfield, where they always resided and where she died April 25, 1911.
She united with the Methodist church at North Java when about 15 years of age, bringing her letter to Lowville church with her and at her marriage, taking it to Greenfield. She was a faithful member of the Greenfield W.C.T.U., requesting the little white ribbon of the society to be placed on her robe in death, as she had worn and loved it in life. The society placed a large white bow on her casket.
She was also a member of the Greenfield Grange and they showed their sympathy by a broken circle of lilies, roses and carnations.
She began to fail early in the year 1910. She calmly worked at light things to leave her loved ones, and without a tear gave many a token to the loved ones. The Sunday before she died she asked those there to meet her in heaven. On Tuesday her Saviour took her calmly and quietly home. She left to mourn her loss a large circle of friends and relatives, a loving husband and two sons, Clyde and Glenn (William, Glenn), an aged mother, Mrs. Emily Hammond, and one sister, Mrs. Luella Field, all of Lowville, where the funeral was held Friday, April 28, conducted at her request by a former pastor, Rev. Mills, of Millvillage, who took for his text, "They Shall Walk With Me in White for They Are Worthy."
