Round Plains

On Tuesday Mrs. Robert Silverthorne [sic] received a telegram from Tawas, Michigan, that her sister, Mrs. Alonzo Cox of that place was very ill. 

She left on the midnight train to see her but on arriving at her destination learned that Mrs. Cox had died the previous evening.

Her remains were brought here by her family and Mr. and Mrs. Charles Forse on Thursday.

The funeral services were held on Friday, 
9 Feb 1900 , by Rev. R. H. Bell at the residence of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Silverthorne [sic] and were largely attended by relatives and friends and former acquaintances of the deceased.

Mrs. Cox, nee Chloe Winegarden, lived at Teeterville and Scotland before her marriage to Mr. Cox about 20 years ago when she removed to Tawas. She was 44 years of age, and leaves a husband, son, two daughters and a number of sisters and brothers to mourn her loss.

The interment took place at the Teeterville Cemetery.

Mr. Cox and Mr. and Mrs. Silverthorne [sic] desire to extend their thanks to those kind friends and neighbors who rendered them assistance in this, their time of bereavement.
