OBITUARY
Mrs. Margaret Barningham Barrett, the daughter of James and Catherine Barningham, was born June 9, 1855, in Thompson township. She was united in marriage to Enoch Barrett, March 24, 1895 by Rev. G. A. Griswold. To this union was born one son, James.

The first year of their married life was spent on the Hathaway farm in Rush township, then they moved on the farm, where she resided up to the time of her death.

Years ago she joined the Salem M. E. church and later her membership was transferred to Apple River charge. Mrs. Barrett was not of a public nature but unassuming, her home was her domain.

When her health began to fail and she saw the end was drawing near, she expressed her submissiveness to God's will and willingness and readiness to meet her loved ones gone on before. During her last illness she would join with her friends in singing songs of her Savior whom she said she loved, and Heaven which she looked forward to entering soon.

To mourn her departure she leaves a husband, son and three sisters, Mrs. Hannah Wright of Scales Mound; Mrs. Wm. Stauss of Galena, Ill.; and Mrs. Mannie Malone, of North Platte, Nebr.

She peacefully fell asleep at 9:30 Friday evening, Nov. 25, 1927. Funeral services were held at the M. E. Church, Monday morning, Rev. R. L. Hoover officiating. Singers were Mrs. Robert Beall, and Mrs. Leo Charlton. Casket bearers were, Messrs Charlton, McFadden, W. J. White, Edward Gerber. Alex Hume, John Rowe, and Elmer Williams. Burial was made in Scales Mound Cemetery.
