Obituary - At Mountain Dell, near Virgin City, Kane County, April 24, of a long and lingering sickness of spinal or kidney affection, NANCY LINDSEY, wife of Thomas Wilson.

Deceased was born August 29th, 1824 in Alabama; received the gospel in Texas; was baptized by Elder Preston Thomas in June, 1856; emigrated to Salt Lake City in 1857, moved to Southern Utah in 1863, where she passed through all the hardships of a new country; raised a family of ten children; leaves a husband and nine children.

Through all the hardships of a new and untried country she never was heard to complain, but tried to live and clothe her family by her industry and economy in bringing into use the material come-at-able in this once isolated country.

She died, as she had lived, in full faith in the gospel; told her husband and children not to mourn for her, for she was happy in Christ. Blessed are the dead that die in the Lord.
