Her obituary:

"MARY (INMAN) EASTABROOKS - April 26, 1831, Mrs. L. F. (Levi Frisbie) Eastabooke was born in Luzerne county, Pennsylvania and died Friday evening, December 21, 1900, at seven thirty o'clock aged 69 years, 7 months and 25 days. She was the daughter of John F. and Mary Inman. In 1856 she came west with her parents and settled on the farm east of Milledgeville, now occupied by Thomas Schell. On the First of January, 1860 she was united in marriage to L. F. Eastabrooks and they moved immediately to the farm three miles north of town, where she lived until about three years ago when she moved to Milledgeville occupying one of the most handsome residences in town, Last June she was ill with a severe cough and since that time she had been troubled with it at times. Recently bronchitis also attacked her and although she had a number of very hard coughing spells her illness was not considered necessarily serious. It was proposed a few weeks ago to take her to another climate but she improved to such an extent that this thought was abandoned. Last Friday afternoon it was noticed by the children that she was rapidly failing and in the evening she passed away. The funeral was held from the house at ten o'clock, Rev. C. A. Gage officiating. He took for his text Psalms 17th chapter, 15th verse. As for me I shall be satisfied when I awake with thy likeness." ............ The burial took place at the South Elkhorn cemetery. Mrs. Eastabrooks was patient during her lllness. She was very much attached to her family. She was sociable and there are hundreds in this vicinity who can remember how well they were entertained at her home. Besides her husband she leaves six children as follows: G. I. from east of town; M. F., who lives on the old homestead; Hattie F. now Mrs. M. V. O'Shea of Madison, Wis., Edna C, and Mollie H., who live at home.... One child died in its infancy and Carrie B. and Allie B. who died at the ages of eleven and thirteen years. She was of a family of eight, two brothers, Levi Inman of Clinton, Wis., and Whitney Inman of this city surviving her. Her brothers and all her children were present at the funeral. Those from a distance who attended were; Mrs. Chas. Frank and daughter, Crissie, of Lanark; R.G. Shumway of Polo and John W. Miller of Lanark. The Tri-County Free Press with the entire community extend sympathy to the bereaved family.
