Mrs. L.T. Babcock, died last Saturday, November 14,1885, at the home of her sister, Mrs. M.P. Conard, in Blaine Township. She had been ill for four or five months. Her disease was beyond the knowledge of our physicians, they could not tell what was the matter with her, nor could they do her any good, and she continually grew worse until dropsy set in and took her away suddenly. The deceased was about thirty-three years of age, and had been married about five years. She leaves no children, but a husband, mother, two sisters, and a brother, all of Ida County to mourn her loss. She was a christian, being a member of the Quaker denomination. The funeral services were conducted last Sabbath with a large concourse of family and friends who followed the remains to the Ida Grove Cemetery. (Mrs. Price was the mother of the deceased, she made a few brief remaks touching upon the noble qualities of her daughter and how happy and fully prepared she was to go.) 1885 Ida County Newspapers, November 19,1885; History of Cedar County, Iowa, 1878
Babcock--On the 13th of Eleventh month, 1885, at the home of her sister, Martha P. Conard, Ida County, near Ida Grove, Iowa, Elizabeth W. Babcock, in the 39th year of her age. She was the eldest daughter of Moses D. Price and Ann W. Price, members of our religious Society who moved to Iowa some years ago. During the protracted illness of the dear child she manifested much patience, telling the loved ones who waited on her that all was well with her, and in entire submission to her Heavenly Father"s will, she was greatly blessed to feel peaceful, and prepared to leave this world. Thus she passed quietly alway, leaving a devoted husband, and relatives and friends to mourn the loss of one so pure and good, yet comforted in the thought that it is her eternal gain. R.P.
