Mrs. James A. Colvin was born in Crawford county, Penn., Sept. 2nd, 1835. Her maiden name was Martha A. Porter. She, in early life, removed from Pennsylvania to Illinois, where, on Sept. 20th, 1856, she was married to James A. Colvin. She was 15 years a resident of Grundy county, Iowa, and died on last Thursday night. Oct. 4th. She leaves a large family to mourn her loss.
In the death of Mrs. Colvin, this community loses a worthy woman, one respected by all who knew her. She was a faithful wife, a good mother, a genial and obliging neighbor; and she will be greatly missed in all these relations of life. The bereaved family have the sympathy of the entire community.
The remains were borne to their last resting place by a large concourse of people on last Sabbath afternoon. Religious services were held in the Baptist church, conducted by Rev. J. W. Ferner.
