Died. At her home near Williamstown, January 31, 1898, Mrs. Robert Anderson. Cause of death, Typhoid-pneuminia.

Mary Jane, wife of Robert Anderson, was born in the county of Down, Ireland, 1867 [may be 1857], and came to America in 1881; settling at Philadelphia, Penn., where on November 2, 1885, she was united in marriage to Robert Anderson. In 1888 they removed to this state and located in Bremer county; four years ago they became residents of this community. Deceased was a sincere member of the M.E. church, a kind mother and loving wife.

She leaves a husband and two little daughters, a father, mother, five brothers and two sisters to mourn her loss. The family have the sympathy of the entire community. The funeral was held at the home Wednesday afternoon, Rev. H.S Salisbury preaching the sermon. The interment was at the Frederika cemetery.

"She sleeps, she sleeps! And never more
Will her footsteps fall by the old home door,
Nor her voice be heard with its loving tone
By the lone ones left round her own hearth-stone,
She has gone, she has gone to her home afar
To the beautiful land, Where the angels are."
