GARLICK - At Springville, August 5, 1887. Sister Elizabeth Garlick, aged 92 years [3] months and 3 days . Born in Bedford County, Pennsylvania, May 2, 1795; was baptized in the year 1837 in the above county by Elder William Bosley. She had seen in a dream, two men, a short time before, preaching, with a motto over their heads bearing the words "Truth will prevail" plainly inscribed, and when the before named Elder and his companion, John T. Wakefield, came to that vicinity preaching the Gospel she at once recognized them as the very men she had beheld in her dream. She believed their message and was soon baptized, together with two of her daughters, who are still living. She went to Nauvoo with her husband and family in 1839; crossed the plains in 1852; arriving at Springville in 1853, where she remained until her death, a true and faithful Latter-day Saint. She leaves 6 children, 46 grand-children and 100 great grandchildren with a large circle of friends to mourn her loss. "Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord."

**FAG member 47040881 states that the companion's name was not John T. Wakefield, but rather was John Fleming Wakefield.
