Died January 2nd, 1865, Laura A. wife of Thomas Updegraff, Esq., aged 28 years. They were married June 1, 1858.
Laura was the daughter of Levi and Abigail Platt of Huron county, Ohio.
The last remains of Mrs. Updegraff were agreeable to her wish, deposited in the grave yard at this place last Saturday. Many of our citizens followed in procession to the spot to pay the last honors to her whom they well knew and esteemed. There were many mourners in Elkader on that day. Tears, heartfelt tears were shed over her grave by all who had known her in the past.
A kind and affectionate wife, and a treasurer to society has thus been take from us at a time least expected. Her sorrowing husband finds sympathy in many a heart.
