Deceased and her husband united with the Church of Christ at Metz, Ind., in early life where they remained faithful to their Christian duty. On Oct. 31, 1872, the husband and father was killed by his horses running away in the woods and throwing him against a tree inflicting injuries which proved fatal in a few hours.
