Margaret F. [sic] Goddard was born in Macon county, Mo, Jan. 10, 1844, and died in Kirksville, Mo., Sept. 4, 1905, aged 61 years, 7 months, and 24 days.
She was married to James A. Crow Nov. 6, 1862. To this union nine children were born, three sons and six daughters. Two sons and one daughter preceded her to the spirit land - the husband and six children survive her. The children are all married and were all at the funeral. The children are, Mrs. Ella Jordon, Sidney, Iowa; Mrs. Sam'l Britt, Greentop; Mrs. O. T. Waddill and Mrs. James Burton[,] Sperry; Mrs. H. W. Sykes, Sublette; and Rufus, of Haxtum [sic], Colo.
She had been a member of the M. E. Church, South for many years and died trusting in her Savior. She had been sick for many weary months, but bore her suffering with great patience. All that doctors and loving hands could do was done, but the grim reaper, Death, claimed her as his own.
The funeral sermon was preached at the Ft. Madison church by Elder E. B. Cater and the body laid to rest in the Ft. Madison cemetery.
