When Mrs. Elliott's spirit departed from its earthly tenement the world lost a noble woman. Coming of Christian parentage her life was an exemplification of the cardinal Christian virtues. Kindly, loving and patient, her example could not but impress all with whom she came in contact and those who met her were better for the meeting. Never a frown or a harsh word; only the expressions of a true and loving wife and mother. After seventy-eight years of right living she left the world richer for having lived in it. Mrs. Elliott was born in Trumbull county, Ohio on August 26, 1826 and resided there until her marriage with Judge Elliott on August 17, 1848. Shortly after this they moved to Texas where they lived until 1869 when they came to Bentonville. They have made this city their home ever since, excepting eight months spent in California. Six children, three sons and three daughters, were born to them. One daughter died in childhood; the others grew to manhood and womanhood and were at their mother's bedside for a month prior to her death. Mrs. Elliott was a life-long member of the Presbyterian church and lived a life that was consistent with her profession. She had a host of friends in Benton county whom mourn her departure but it is on the aged husband, with whom she walked life's pathway for fifty-six years, and the sons and daughters who will miss mother's love and counsel, that the blow falls the hardest.

D.J. Elliott, who had been in Bentonville several weeks, having been called here on account of the serious illness of his mother, Mrs. Jane K. Elliott, whose death occurred on Nov. 16th, left for his home in Coalinga, Cal. last Sunday. Mr. Elliott was a citizen of Bentonville about thirty years ago and his many old friends here were exceedingly glad to meet him again and hope that his visit in the future will be more frequent than they have been in the past.
