from the Janesville Daily Gazette:

Mrs. Sarah K. Lawrence, mother of Mrs. M.G. Jeffris, passed away last evening at the home of her daughter, 502 St. Lawrence avenue, after a protracted illness. Her health had been unusually good for yer years until she fractured her hip in a accident last September. From this accident she never fully recovered. Mrs. Lawrence was eighty-eight year old and was born in Warner, New Hampshire, July 4, 1825. Her maiden name was Sarah Emerson. In 1844 she came to Wisconsin with her parents, settling at Madison. There she married Samuel H. Roys in 1847. Mr. Roys was a practicing attorney and a member of the law firm of Vilas, Roys and Pinney. He died in 1857 and in 1865 his widow became the wife of William A. Lawrence of this city. Since that time Mrs. Lawrence had many friends who were attracted by her charitable and unselfish disposition and breadth of mind which enabled her to sympathize with and comprehend the views of others. Surviving her are a son, Rufus H. Roys of Vancouver, B.C. and a daughter, Mrs. M.G. Jeffris...
