Mrs. Kindred alleges that she is the owner of lots 1 and 2 section 34, in 134-28, and that she has been since 1892. The lands are in Crow Wing county, and the complaint alleges that the lands are chiefly valuable for their proximity to the Mississippi river and to the dam built across the Mississippi by the Mississippi Water Power & Boom company. Damages are asked for the construction of the railroad across the northeast corner of the land, and for the construction of the log roll-way built on the land for the purpose of discharging logs from the trains to the river. The plaintiff in this action is the wife of Charles Kindred, formerly prominently connected with the Northern Pacific. (Brainerd Dispatch, 28 July 1899, p. 1, c. 3)

Wife of Former Well-known Railroad Man
Was Famous for Acts of Philanthropy.

     After an illness of five weeks from typhoid fever, Mrs. Sara Elizabeth Kindred, wife of Charles F. Kindred, a retired railroad man and a prominent member of the Union League, died Wednesday evening at her home, 1500 North Fifteenth street. Before her death Mrs. Kindred lapsed into a comatose condition from which she never rallied. Up until a week ago her recovery was looked for, then she had a relapse and from then on her death was hourly expected.
     Mrs. Kindred was numbered amongst the foremost of Philadelphia's women philanthropists. Her greatest fondness was to help along poor children, whom she greatly loved. While she never took much interest in organized societies, she was always willing to contribute to any charitable undertaking. One of her acts was to personally hunt up poor families, especially children, and see that they did not live in want.
     Mrs. Kindred was the daughter of Alfred and Sara Guest. She was born in Kidderminster, England, July 13, 1849, and moved to this country with her parents when she was 7 years old, and settled in Chicago in June 15, 1875, and moved to this city in 1880.
     She is survived by her husband and three children, Mrs. H. V. Elliott, Miss Lawla Kindred, and Arthur J. Kindred.
     Funeral services will be held at her late residence, 1500 North Fifteenth street, at 2 o'clock tomorrow afternoon. Rev. Dr. Colfelt, former pastor of the Oxford Presbyterian Church, of which Mrs. Kindred was an active member, will officiate, Interment will be made in the family vault in Central Laurel Hill Cemetery.
