Caroline Wilcox

Miss Caroline Wilcox died at the home of her brother, Lewis Wilcox, west of this city, at 6 o’clock Wednesday morning, Jan. 6. The funeral was held from the home Thursday afternoon at 2 o’clock by Rev. J. D. Vannoy. Miss Wilcox was born in Broome county, New, York, Oct. 27, 1818, and for the last thirty-nine years of her life made her home with her brother. She joined the Baptist church when 12 years old and ever afterward remained a worthy member of that denomination. She found her greatest pleasure in assisting in the home where she lived for so many years. She had but few acquaintances but they were all her friends. She died of old age and her death was calm and painless.
