Wife of Hezekiah Buffington

Glenwood Opinion
August 26 1897

Mrs. Elizabeth BUFFINGTON, after a long and painful illness, died Aug. 3, 1897, at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Catherine MEADOWS, near West Liberty. Mrs. BUFFINGTON'S maiden name was Elizabeth BARRINGER; she was born in Mason county, Virginia, Jan. 28,1808, moved to Meigs county, Ohio, when she was about 14 years of age. She was married to Hezekiah BUFFINGTON in Aug. 1830. They emigrated to Illinios in 1837, and to Iowa in 1854, where she has since resided. Of her ten children seven survive her, and were all with her during her last illness. She was converted in early life and united with the M. E. church, of which she died a member. In all the struggles and hardships of a long life she was true to God. After nearly 89, years of so journeying here below, she relieved the message, "Arise and depart, for this is not your rest." Bidding farewell to earth and loved ones, she fell asleep in death. But it was blessed sleep from which she awoke in His likeness.
