The not unexpected death of
Mrs. James O. Townsend occurred a one a.m. on Saturday, 10 Mar 1900.
She has been a great
sufferer from that fell disease consumption, which sufferings she
bore with Christain fortitude.
The funeral services were
conducted by Rev. Mr. Sparling in the Methodist chapel here on
Monday and the interment took place in Greenwood cemetery.
Thus in the short space of
three weeks the home of Mr. Townsend has been doubly bereft. First
in the death of his only daughter Mary, and now that of his beloved
wife. He with his three little boys are left to mourn their loss. He
has the heartfelt sympathy of his neighbors and friends.
