The funeral of Mrs. Alexander BARRETT, who died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. L. O. ELY, Sunday, was held in the Christian church, at Talma, Tuesday, Rev. S. McNEELY, officiating. She was 89 years old.
Melona BARRETT was born in Coshocton county, Ohio, October 13, 1824. She was united in marriage with Alexander BARRETT, May 4, 1842. To this union were born 13 children, viz: Hannah [BARRETT], Elizabeth [BARRETT], William [BARRETT], Mary [BARRETT], John [BARRETT], Sarah [BARRETT], Melvina [BARRETT], Stephen [BARRETT], and Irene [BARRETT]. Three died in infancy. She also leaves 23 grandchildren, 35 great-grandchildren and six great-great-grandchildren.

In the year 1851, the Barretts left their native state of Ohio and settled in Newcastle township, Fulton county, where Mrs. Barrett afterward resided until her death. Many years ago she united with the Christian church at Pleasant Grove; later she placed her membership with Bloomingsburg Christian church with which she remained affiliated till death called her.

"Mother" Barrett will not be mourned by her children only, but also by a large circle of friends, who have learned to cherish her memory because of her noble example of motherhood. In her long and useful life she had many obstacles to overcome and conquered them by a strict devotion to principle and truth.
