Elizabeth Jane Carpenter.

Mrs. Seymour Carpenter died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Perdew, Saturday, after a prolonged illness. Funeral services were held in the Christian church in Gravity at 3 o'clock Monday afternoon, conducted by Rev. W. L. Dunlavy, assisted by Rev. James Burns, the pastor. Interment was in the Gravity cemetery.

Elizabeth Jane Mitchell was born June 2, 1842, in Indiana and came to Iowa in 1857 with her parents, who located in Buchanan County. August 24, 1862, she was married to Seymour Carpenter at Newton, and there they made their home until coming to Taylor County in 1875. Mrs. Carpenter was a victim of tuberculosis, and last winter, when her condition became critical, she was removed to the home of her daughter. Five sons and three daughters survive, all of whom were present at the funeral except George and Limond, who are in Alaska.
