1898 May 5, Akron Register Tribune, Akron, Iowa
Mrs. Thos. Austin, of Adaville, died last Thursday, aged fifty-four years, after a short illness. The funeral occurred last Saturday and the remains interred in the Adaville Cemetery. Surviving are two grown sons, her husband having died about six years ago. Deceased was one of the early settlers of the county, the family coming here in the early seventies.

From the LeMars Sentinel, Thursday, May 5, 1898, Page 3, Column 6, LeMars, Plymouth, Iowa:
Milnerville--The funeral of Mrs. Austin who died early Friday morning was held Saturday afternoon at her home about three miles east from the Broken Kettle on the Valley road. But few of this community knew of the death and burial and were therefore unable to attend.

[Note: Mary Virginia Gauchat married Thomas Austin on 5 Jun 1862 in Dubuque, Iowa. Their children were Juliette, Mary V., John Albert, Frank, Alfred Thomas, Louise, Ella L., William Garfield, Mabel Wilda and Maud E. Austin. Husband Thomas died 26 Jun 1890.]

Farewell, dear Mother, sweet thy rest
Weary with years and worn with pain
Farewell, till in some happy place
We shall behold thy face again
