Mrs. Sarah Elizabeth Scott died at her home in Bronte, early Saturday morning, January 16, 1932. Deceased was born at Talapoosa AL, March 6, 1844, making her to be 87 years, 9 months and 10 days old when death called her to her reward.

The tired, worn out body was buried in the Bronte cemetery, Sunday afternoon, following religious services at the home, conducted by the pastor of deceased, Rev. J. A. Branaman, pastor of the Kickapoo Baptist Church, assisted by Rev. N. A. Pitts and the writer. In keeping with the request of the deceased the funeral services were simple, consisting of the singing of hyms, reading of the Scriptures, prayer
by Rev. Pitts, a brief talk by the writer and funeral address by the pastor. A great throng assembled and paid tribute to this grandmother in Israel.

Deceased was twice married. Her maiden name was Anderson. She was married first to Wm. Waldrop, May 1, 1862, who died in the Confederate hospital.

August 17, 1867 deceased was married to Daniel E. Scott. To this union seven children were born, only three of whom survive, namely, Mrs. Emma Thomason, Alamogordo, New Mexico, Collins Scott, Wellington and Dewitt Scott of California. Only the daughter could be present at the
funeral. There are 28 grandchildren and 41 great grandchildren.

Other relatives present for the funeral from a distance were Mrs. Beulah O’Gorman, Fort Worth; Mr. and Mrs. Lee York and daughter, Miss Viola, Abilene -- Mesdames York and O’Gorman are granddaughters of deceased; a brother W. L Poole and wife from Clyde; a nephew Will Dawkins and wife from Breckenridge, and a grandson, Walter Scott and
wife from Pampa.

Deceased came to Texas with her husband in 1878, but they did not come to Coke county till 1891. They made their home here continuously from that time. Hence it was forty years ago that deceased became a resident of this community. And in the name of her husband and herself, their name always represented the better, finer things of life. And in the pioneer days they did well their part for the good of the community. And following the worthy footsteps of his father, their son, Joe Scott, who spent his life here, was also one who always stood for the right and better things of life.

“Grandmother Scott,’ as she was affectionately called by her large circle of friends, professed faith in Christ when a little girl of only eleven years old and united with the Missionary Baptist Church. For seventy seven years she was a devout member of the church. She was a charter member of the Kickapoo Baptist church and contributed to the building of the first house of worship in Coke County.

Truly a great and gracious woman has passed to her reward. The world was enriched by her having lived and now that she is no more her going is mourned by the many who knew her. May the sorrowing children and grand children and all others who mourn her passing, have a divine comfort.
