The same year she was baptized and united with the Seventh-day Baptist Church in DeRuyter. At the time of her death she was a much esteemed member of the First Seventh-day Baptist Church of Alfred. She was an undoubted Christian, and a lady of many accomplishments and excellent traits of character. Her death is deeply lamented.

She leaves a husband, two daughters and a son, with many relatives and friends to mourn her departure. L. C. R."
