Mrs. Robert Andrews
On Wednesday morning, December 16 death called home Emma V. Bradley, wife of the late Robert Andrews of Oswego Town. She was born near Olivet, Mich., October 13, 1845, where she passed her girlhood. At the age of eighteen she married Robert Andrews and came with him a bride to the home which she has now left. Three children survive her, Mrs. H.E. Kingsley of Syracuse, Mrs. S.F. Lewis and William Andrews of Oswego Town, also two sisters in Michigan. In 1895 she with her husband united with the South West Oswego Baptist Church and within the year both have passed away. The church feel they have met with a loss not easily replaced. A most devoted mother, unifying in ministering to her family, ever looking after their welfare during her severe illness, truly "her children arise up and call her blessed."
The community are called to mourn for the breaking up of a happy family where social joys and friendly intercourse went far toward making life pleasant. But they have passed beyond our horizon and some day "Where crystal streams through endless years, Flow over golden sands, And where the old grow young again, We'll clasp their friendly hands."
1839–1908 (m. 1864)
