Death of Mrs. Pollard
At the residence of her son in law John M. Dowling in French Creek township at noon at Wednesday, November 13th, 1901, in the 88th year of her life, Mrs. Sarah Buckley Pollard.
Sarah Buckley was born in Halifax, Yorkshire, England, July 29th, 1814. In early life she joined the Church of England and married John Pollard in 1836 and five years later with husband and two children came to America. About thirtyfive years ago she came to the farm in French Creek township which has since been her home. Three months ago she went to the home of her daughter, Mrs. Esther Dowling on the farm adjoining, to remain while the old house was torn down and a new one erected in its place. In a short time she was taken with congestion of the lungs after which other complications were found to exist, and for the past nine weeks she has been a constant and intense sufferer.
She was patient under affliction but often longed to depart to the betterland. She was tenderly cared for by her two daughters and son Charles and never forgot to thank her neighbors for any assistance rendered. She is also survived by three sons, Jesse, David and Frank residing in the east. Mr. Pollard died in February last and in March and April she mourned the loss of a daughter-in-law and youngest daughter Mrs. Belle Brallier of Guilford, Maine.
The funeral will take place on Friday, services at the house being conducted by Rev. Sutherland at 10 a.m., after which she will be taken to the Presbyterian church at Waukon where Rev. Vannice will conclude the services and she will be laid to rest in the family lot in the Waukon cemetery.
A good woman and one who commanded the respect of all who knew her, has gone to her reward.
