Mrs. Dufty
Florence Adeltha Higday was born May 19, 1852, at Evansville, Wis. On November 9, 1874, she was married at LeMars, Iowa, to Arthur Wood Dufty.

Seven children were born to this union: H. H. Dufty, of Tingley; Mrs. Myrah Long, of Des Moines; Mrs. Maude Knies, of Keokuk; Murland A Dufty, of Torrington, Wyo.; Mrs. Myrtle Dady, of Beaconsfield; Mrs. Lavon Akers, of Beaconsfield; Mable Florence Dufty, who died in infancy.

At the age of thirteen she was converted and baptized in the Baptist church at Indianapolis, Ind., and lived a consistent Christian life. She delighted in the Lord's work and entered into its activities for years, having been especially active in Sunday school work. Of late years she was unable to attend services regularly and take active part but still her interest was not abated.

For a number of years she was a constant and patient sufferer and the came as a welcome release.

Besides a sorrowing husband and children to mourn her loss there are eighteen grandchildren and one brother, Joseph Higday, of Pleasanton, Kan.

Burial took place at Tingley, Iowa.
