The remains of Sarah Jane Downing were laid to rest in the I. O. O. F. Cemetery last Friday afternoon, Rev. Neff preaching the sermon.
The deceased was born December 25, 1832, and passed away September 25. She was married to Don E. Downing in 1851, and their eleven children three daughters and two sons had preceded the mother through death's gate. The family removed to Bourbon in 1880, and the deceased became a consistent member of the Presbyterian church, in which faith she passed away. One son, five daughters and 14 grand-children survive.
It is believed that Sarah Jane CASSELL was married first to a SMITH. A child from this union was Sarah Adeline who went by the last name of DOWNING.
