AGNES SEYMOUR AUSTIN, widow of the Rev. J.H. Austin, daughter of JOHN AND SALLIE SEYMOUR, was born in Pierson County, N.C., October 17, 1824. She departed this life at the home of her son, 2 and a half miles northwest of Waverly, Illinois, April 25, 1906, having attained the advanced age of 81 years, 6 months, and 8 days. When she was 4 years of age her parents removed from North Carolina and settled on a farm near Franklin, Ill. She was converted and united with the Methodist church when about 20 years of age. The following year, on December 25, 1845, she was united in marriage to the Rev. J.H. AUSTIN, who was for many years a local preacher of great acceptability and power, and who became a member of the Illinois conference in 1873, and for nearly 20 years sustained an effective relation in the conference. Her husband died at Paris, Ill., September 26, 1893, in the 69th year of his life. To them were born nine children. Two died in infancy and three after they were grown. The four that survive are: CHARLES F. AUSTIN, of Fisher, Ill.; MRS. J.H. GRANTHAM, of Irving, Ill.; MRS. JOSEPH FISHBACK and CARLIN A. AUSTIN, of Waverly, Ill. There are also left to mourn her departure five brothers and one sister: Robert and Edward, of Franklin, Ill.; Jarrett and George, of Jacksonville, Ill.; Henry, of Kansas; and Mrs. John Hutchinson, of Waverly, Ill.
