The New Era, Humeston, Iowa
Wednesday, April 4, 1904

Martha L. Vermillion was born in Russell county, Kentucky, May 4th, 1827 and died March 27, 1904 at her son-in-law's, John Williams, at Big Springs, Wayne county, Iowa, at the age of 76 years, 10 months and 23 days.

She was united in marriage to Rev. Newton Coffey April 13, 1843 in Russell county, Kentucky. To this union was born 13 children, 10 sons and three daughters, five of which survive. 1 daughter and seven sons preceded the mother to the Spirit Land, all of them dying in infancy except two.

Rev. Newton Coffey, husband of the deceased died on the train, after traveling a distance of ten miles on his way to this country, January 14, 1890.

Sister Coffey accepted Christ as her Saviour and united with the Piolet Baptist Church in the state of Illinois, September, 1854 and was a faithful servant of God until the Master said "It's enough." It can be truthfully said from the life and dying words of such a noble woman that the Master said "Come up higher."

She requested her children cease their efforts to restore her to health, for she would rather go home and be at rest. She had been in feeble health for about ten years and had born her afflictions with the best of Christian spirit.

The funeral service was conducted by the writer, Rev. M.S. Clark, of Chariton, at Unity Baptist Church, March 28, 1904. Interment in *Mallete Cemetery.

*Mallete Cemetery was renamed Green Bay
