On March 14, 1882, she was united in marriage to A. B. DeBord of Princeville, Illinois. To this union one son and two daughters were born. Mr. and Mrs. DeBord followed the occupation of farming until the year of 1908, when they moved to Princeville, where they had since made their home.
One daughter, Mrs. Leatha Gingrich, having preceded her in death about ten years ago, Mrs. DeBord is survived by her husband, A. B. DeBord of this place; one son, Bryon DeBord, also of Princeville; and one daughter Mrs. Bessie Hale of Peoria, Illinois. She is also survived by one brother, George A. Hawver of Steubenville, Ohio; one sister Mrs. L. L. Hurd of Westmont, Illinois; and six grandchildren, who with a number of more distant relatives and a host of friends remain to mourn her passing.
The deceased was very active member of Union Grove Chapter No. 229 of the Order of Eastern Star in Princeville and of Judia Shrine No. 10 of the White Shrine in Peoria.
She was united with the Monica M. E. church on March 17, 1872 and was transferred to Princeville M. E. church in 1909 and remained a faithful member of that church until called to the "Church Triumphant."
Until her recent illness, Mrs. DeBord was a very active member of the Ladies' Aid Society and also of the Women's Bible Class of the M. E. church.
