MRS. A. M. BARNHART
Sept 9 1895 (hand written)
An obituary notice of the late Mrs. A.M. Barnhart, whose demise was announced in these columns in our last issue, appeared in the Chicago Chronicle yesterday, reading as follows: Mrs. Angie S. Barnhart, wife of A.M. Barnhart, president of the Great Western Type foundry of this city, passed away yesterday afternoon at 5 o’clock at the family residence, 113 Cass street.
Mrs. Barnhart was born at Moline, Ill., March 15, 1844. Her father, S.G. Stein, moved to Muscatine, Iowa, while she was still an infant and lived in that city for some forty years. He gave his daughter the best possible advantages, and at Galesburg Seminary, at Oxford Female College, and later as a student of art, music and literature in Boston, New York and Philadelphia she won golden opinions for her abilities in every direction.
Although her education was well rounded and her pen and brush would have brought her fame, she shone chiefly and by preference as the devoted wife. She was eminently domestic in her tastes. In 1890 and 1891 she, in company with her husband and only brother, undertook a thorough and systematic course of travel in Europe and the Orient. Many letters written by her and published in Chicago and other papers during that period attest the bright nature, amiability and genius of this gifted woman. She has been a resident of Chicago since the year of her marriage, 1869. Her husband, brother and mother survive her.
