Dubuque Daily Times, February 2, 1902 page 5:

Capt. A. W. Hosford received a telegram Friday afternoon from his son, R. W. Hosford, informing him of the death of the latter gentleman's wife, which occurred at 4 A.M. Friday morning at the home of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Orson Clark, of Ogden, Boone County, Iowa. As may well be imagined, the sad news caused great sorrow at the Hosford home and also on the part of all the friends who knew the young couple while residing in Dubuque. Captain Hosford and family were almost prostrated by the sad announcement for they knew that the death of his young wife will completely prostrate her young husband who is now left alone with his little 2 year old daughter Mildred, a tender flower of love thus early left without a mother's care. Mr. and Mrs. Hosford were married 3 years ago shortly after Lieutenant Hosford returned from the Spanish War. There was a tinge of romance in their wedding. The beautiful young lady of 20 met the soldier and it was a case of love at first sight. Their hearts were welded as one in the fire of their love and the young husband was the happiest of men. Two persons more adapted to each other in temperament were not to be found. It was love and sunshine on the part of the one and sunshine and love on the part of the other and their lot was indeed a happy one. Then the sweet little bud of love came to them and their cup of happiness overflowed. But shortly afterwards, the young wife and mother became the victim of inflammatory rheumatism and for 2 years she suffered with patience and fortitude while all that love would do to relieve her from the grasp of the insidious disease was done. No expense was spared. The best of medical skills were employed and while temporary relief came at times, the disease could not be thwarted on its march. Mr. Hosford hoped that she would gain strength enough to be taken to a sanitorium in Chicago but she did not grow stronger and continued to become weaker until the end came. Her thoughts were constantly of her husband and dear little Mildred. Even the acute torments she suffered could not efface them from her heart. She was born in Ogden the daughter of Dr. Orson Clark a leading and highly respected citizen of that place. She was a highly educated and accomplished young woman and because of her lovely disposition, a favorite of all who knew her. During her residence of one year in Dubuque she made a large number of friends who will bepained to hear of her demise. When first afflicted with the disease, she went to her parents in Ogden to be with her mother during the illness. Captain Hosford departed Saturday to attend the funeral.
