Mrs. Carrier, or "Aunt Libbie" as she was familiarly called, was born in Ohio on June 25, 1822. Her maiden name was Elizabeth Parkes. She was united in marriage to Roderick Carrier, a civil war veteran, in 1868, and came to Nebraska in 1868, residing at Fremont. They then returned for a time as far as Illinois. Again they returned to Nebraska and lived on a homestead seven miles south of the site now occupied by the city of Hastings. From 1883 to 1887 they were living on government land near McCook, till disaster overtook them in a windstorm which rendered them practically homeless. They came to Cowles, occupying the house where in the spring of 1892 the husband died and where on Friday, October first, the widow passed peacefully away.
In early life she united with the Baptist Church. When the Christian Church was organized in Cowles, Mrs. Carrier and husband became members. It was a pleasure for her to attend the service of the sanctuary as long as she was able. A pleasure prolonged for several years by the assistance of her faithful nephew, Eugene Burton. Revs. Deakin and Blanchard officiating on Sunday afternoon, following which the mortal remains were laid by the side of her husband in the public cemetery at Cowles.

We desire to tender sincere gratitude to the people of Cowles and vicinity for the kindness and sympathy shown to us in the death of our aunt, Mrs. E. M. Carrier. E.O. Burton Mrs. Chas. S. Watson.
