The Tabor Beacon
Tabor, Iowa
1 May 1896

Barnes, Mrs. Gertrude Stanley wf /o Adelbert Barnes died at her home in Tabor on the 24th day of Apr 1896. She was born in Dorien, Walworth Co WI, 22 Jan 1846. At age 18 she joined the Methodist Church and on 23 Nov 1871 was united in marriage to Mr. Adelbert Barnes at Freeport IL. 7 children were born to them, of whom 5, with the husband and father, survive to mourn her loss.

In 1875, the family moved to Montgomery County IA and settled on a farm, removing thence to Red Oak 3 years later. Here they lived and here Mrs. Barnes became a member of the Congregational Church and so remained until the spring of 1894, when for better educational advantages, they moved to Tabor. Here the entire family united with the Congregational Church.

Source: A few years ago Leland Smith of Tabor, Fremont County, Iowa, abstracted obituaries from the Tabor Beacon newspaper. Tabor is on the county line between Mills and Fremont County, therefore the paper printed obituaries from both counties. These were later microfilmed by the LDS Church on microfilm #1491976. ~ transcribed and contributed by Cay Merryman,
