In the town of Wirt, Allegany county, N. Y., April 6th, 1877, after an illness of a number of weeks, which she bore with Christian patience and resignation, Mrs. Lavina Kenyon, wife of Joel Kenyon, Esq., in her 74th year. She was a daughter of George Maxson; born in Brookfield, Madison county. At the time of her marriage, her father was living in Lebanon.
In 1824, she and her husband emigrated to Friendship, when the country was new. In 1827, she was baptized by Eld. John Green, and united with the Friendship church. She has left eight living children, and an aged, infirm husband to mourn the loss of a respected and beloved mother and wife. Ever since settling in Allegany, they have lived in the same neighborhood, and for more than forty years, on the same farm. They lived together as husband and wife, fifty-three years. She was borne to the grave by two sons, three sons-in-law, and one grandson. Though she is dead, yet shall she live again. W. B. G.
