Mrs. Emily Allhands, deceased widow of Garret Allhands, who preceded her to the grave about thirty years ago, died at her home in Dolson Township, this county, August 20, 1894.

She was born in Jefferson County, Kentucky, July 7, 1814. While yet a little girl, her father William Beadle moved to Clark County, Indiana, and there in 1830, she was married to Garret Allhands, where they lived until 1848, when they came to this county and entered land and built them a home in Dolson Township. The remainder of her life was spent in our midst. She united with the church at an early age and has ever been a devoted Christian. She has always been an active person, hale and strong and possessing a wonderful portion of vitality for one of the age of eighty.

Up to ten days preceding her death, she was able to perform her own household duties. But suddenly she became prostrated with malaria and from the beginning she knew that the end was nigh. She told her many friends that death would soon end her afflictions. A few days before her death she gave full directions concerning the burial, the manner in which she wished to be clothed and the text to be preached from. She remained conscious until a few hours before her death.

On August 22, she was laid to rest in the Green Moss Cemetery in presence of a great concourse of people and sympathizing friends. Funeral services were conducted by Rev. Blunk who preached from the text of her selection. She was the mother of six children of which one son and three daughters still survive her. She also leaves behind one brother, John B. Beadle of Dolson and one sister, Mrs. Jack Read of Auburn.
