Mrs. Polly Cornwell, whose death was briefly announced last week, was the daughter of Isaac Lamphere. She was the youngest of ten children all of whom she had survived.

She was born in Lorraine in 1818 and married in 1846 to Nelson Muzzy, with whom she came to the town of Sandy Creek, where she resided on the farm adjoining that owned by Olin Cornwell in the western part of the town. One daughter was born to them who died when eighteen years of age. This was followed by the death of Mr. Muzzy in 1865. In 1876 she was married to Francis Cornwell and moved to the village of Sandy Creek something over twenty years ago. She was a conscientious member of the Methodist church for many years. She is survived by two stepsons, Matthew and Olin Cornwell. For over thirty years she has been confined to the use of crutches and for about ten years she has been bedridden except when relieved by the use of a wheeled chair. Mrs. Cornwell was highly esteemed by a large circle of friends who gathered at the house on Friday last to pay their last tribute of respect. Rev. W. M. Hydon officiated and their remains were laid to rest in Woodlawn cemetery.
