Harriet Newell Moseley was born on the 13th of December, 1831, In Princeton, Illinois, and died on the 28th day of April, 1881. Her life was unmarked by events of public interest, and her nature had its best expression in her home. One of a large family, there was occasion for self-denial and she met with the cares of others more than half way, with courage and patience. Having a quick sense of humor, her temper was cheerful. Children loved her, and she was their steadfast friend. She was modest and simple in her ways, devout in religion, sensitive in conscience and of independent mind. Untaught in art, her delight in beauty was great; and her enjoyment of written poetry uncommonly keen. That the faults of the human race were hers, must be so; but no instance of untrustworthiness on her part comes to my remembrance. Loving, generous, true are the words that describe her character. In this mortal life she believed in God and hoped for immortality.

The funeral was from the residence of her sister, Mrs. J.M. McConihe, Saturday afternoon, Dr. Richard Edwards officiating.
