Elizabeth A. Ninemires 1847-1921

Please Note: Elizabeth’s name was spelled incorrectly as Ninemeiers in her obituary and funeral notice. It is spelled correctly as Ninemires in her death record and on her gravestone.

Also, this obituary dated November 28, 1921, stated that she died, “this morning.” According to her death record, Elizabeth died on November 27, 1921.

I have transcribed the obituary and funeral notice as written.
