    the Morning Sun Herald 
    • Mrs. Nancy F. Umphrey died last Friday morning, November 2d (1894), after a lingering illness, aged 70 years, 7 months and 13 days.

      The funeral services were held at the home Sabbath at 10 a.m., Reverend D. T. Campbell conducting, and interment occurring at Concord. The cause of death was a general breaking down of the entire system, and she lingered at the point of death several weeks before her spirit took its flight.

      She was one of the early settlers in this community, coming here in the spring of 1840, since which time she has lived on tho old homestead. She was a fine lady and had a large circle of intimate friends who speak very highly of her character and worth.

      Thus one by one the old residents are being called home. Peace to her ashes.
