Alexandria Gazette (Alexandria, D.C.) March 8, 1897 page 2

Stamford, Conn., March 8.—Mrs. Henry Ward Beecher died at 10:42 this morning. Mrs. Beecher was a native of West Sutton, Mass., where she was born in 1812. Her maiden name was Eunice White Bullard. She was married to Mr. Beecher in 1837, when the young divine obtained his first charge at Lawrenceburg, Ind. Ten years afterwards he came to Plymouth Church, Brooklyn. From 1872 to 1884 Mrs. Beecher was a regular contributor to various periodicals, chiefly on domestic subjects. Mrs. Beecher had ten children, of whom only four are living. A curious coincidence is that she died exactly ten years after her husband. His death occurred on March 8, 1887.
