Miss Lucinda Miller was born in Fayette county, Penn., October 22nd, 1840, and died February 8th, 1911, aged 70 years, 3 months and 16 days. In 1864, at Belle Vernon, Penn., she was united in marriage to James H. Carmichael, who survives her.

Four children were born to them, all of whom are living: Mrs. Anna Ewing and Mrs. Jos. Robinson, of Volga, Iowa, Henry Carmichael, of Wadena, and Miss Nelle Carmichael, of Postville, Ia.

In 1866 she, with her husband, came to Fayette County, Iowa, where they resided for twenty years, afterward settling near Volga, where she resided at the time of her death.

At an early age she united with the Baptist church at Belle Vernon, Penn., but some time after coming to Volga she joined the Presbyterian church, where she has maintained an active and progressive membership ever since, being a faithful and beloved worker throughout the early pioneer days and never laying down the work that her Master had given her to perform, until she heard the glad summons home, on Wednesday morning.

Her vacant chair shall always remind us of that higher life that it has been her privilege to enjoy, and for which she now has entered into her full reward. Mrs. Carmichael was a kind and sympathetic neighbor, ever ready to give a helping hand to all in time of trouble and sorrow, a true and lasting friend.

She will be missed by her neighbors and by the Ladies' Aid Society of the Presbyterian church, of which she was a faithful and hard-working member, and in church her kind face will be missed at the morning service to which she was a regular attendant, when the weather made it possible for her to attend.

The burial was in the Volga cemetery on Thursday, Feb. 9th.
