To this union was born one son, Perry Mather. She with her husband and son moved to Kansas in 1876, coming in the spring of 1877 to Stafford (county), near Leesburg, where they settled and with the exception of a few years' stay in Oklahoma made this her home until she was called away to her eternal abode.
Her husband, Samuel Mather, died on May 2nd, 1882, leaving her to care for herself and her son.
She was converted while a young lady and united with the Methodist church. In later years she joined the Baptist church and to the time of her death lived a faithful, earnest member. She was kind and faithful in all her dealings and was loved by everyone who knew her. Funeral services were conducted by Rev. W.H.

In all her suffering she was patient and uncomplaining. She will be greatly missed in the home, in the church and among her friends.
