Mrs. Bumpus, who has been in very poor health for several years, and who, since the death of her husband, E.G. Bumpus, who died October 12 last, has resided with Mr. and Mrs. F.W. Edgett passed away Wednesday morning. She was the daughter of Ichahod and Hulduh Sprague and was one of twelve children, of whom five survive. Only one, Ward Sprague, living in this town. Of the others one resides in St. Lawrence county and the others in the west. She was born near Gouverneur in St. Lawrence county, but when about ten years of age, her parents moved to this town, where she grew to womanhood. Nearly fifty years ago she was married to E. Galusha Bumpus and to them were born four children, three of whom survive their parents, Mrs. Delos Carpenter, Fred and Emmett Bumpus, of this town. For several years after their marriage they resided in the southern part of the county and then went west for a short time, when they again returned and bought the place now owned by Emmett Bumpus, where they resided until a few years ago, when they removed to the village. Mrs. Bumpus was a member of the Methodist church.

The funeral was held from the home of Mr. and Mrs. Edgett at two o'clock today, her pastor, Rev. A. Brumley, officiating.
