Passed Away Suddenly With Heart Trouble Last Saturday at Her Home North of Livermore.

Mrs. Fayette Stoddard died quite suddenly at her home north of Livermore, of heart trouble. She had been in her usual good health up to a short time before the attack. A physician was hastily summoned, but arrived only a few moments before she expired.

Deceased was born in Sparta, Wisconsin, in 1857. Her maiden name was Alice Barcume. She removed to Humboldt with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Moses Barcume, at the age of 13 years, the Barcumes having purchased the farm south of Livermore, which is still known as the Barcume place, and on which they lived many years.

She was married there in 1897 to Fayette Stoddard, Father Martin of Livermore performing the ceremony. They them removed to Iowa Falls, returning to Humboldt County in 1895, and ever since that time have made their home on various farms east of Livermore or near LuVerne. Last spring they moved onto the old Weeks farm just north of town, where her death occurred.

There were born to Mr. and Mrs. Stoddard: Bertha (Mrs. Fred Stewart), deceased; Clarence, deceased; Clarice M., (Mrs. Hiram Hewitt of Livermore); Margaret and Muriel, died in infancy; Guy, who lives with his father and manages the farm, and Glen, at
Moorehead, Iowa.

She also leaves a half-brother, James, in Virginia, and a half-sister, Mrs. Mary Johnson, in Washington.
