At her home in Marshall township, on Tuesday evening Dec. 15th, 1891, at 7 o'clock, quietly passed from earth the released spirit of Mrs. Melissa L. Crammond. She had been in poor health for several weeks, but not until the early morning before her death, did her sickness take a severe turn. Melissa I. Wilson, the eldest of four children, two of whom were sons, of Robert and Nancy Wilson, was born in Columbus City township Sep. 1842 on the farm where her parents first located in 1837 and on which they lived until their death. She was married to J. B. Crammond in the autumn of 1863 and leaves besides her husband, five children, two sons and three daughters.

Mrs. Crammond's life was like that of other thousands, her daily round of duties was in a sphere so circumscribed and humble that human hands found nothing in it they cared to note. Yet the little lowly duties of each day were done so cheerfully, so hopefully and made eternal record to be read in the warm glow of celestial light. Early in life she united with the Christian church and all through life was faithful to those early vows. Her little circle of friends will always remember her as an affectionate mother, a devoted wife and a faithful friend. Loving friends conveyed her form to its last resting place in the old Tennessee cemetery near Columbus Junction, Thursday, the 17th inst., where a short service was held, conducted by Rev. Telford.
