Mrs. I.M. Silverthorn was born in Pennsylvania on December 24, 1739 [sic]. She married a Mr. Strong to which union two sons were born, both of whom with the husband, have long since passed away.
Her maiden name was Harriet A. Silverthorn, and she was a fourth cousin to I.M. Silverthorn whom she married on August 29, 1900. She passed away at her home in this city April 10, 1913, at the age of 74 years and 4 months. Her husband survives her at the age of nearly 89 years.
Funeral services were held from the Methodist church on Sunday afternoon and enterment made in the beautiful local cemetery.
Mrs. S. O. Ross, a niece, from Sioux Rapids, came upon notice of the death and stayed until after the funeral.
Mrs. Silverthorn had been a devoted member of the Presbyterian church since childhood and has always taken a keen interest in every good work.
The kindest sympathy is extended to the bereaved and aged husband in hour of deepest trial, and who awaits the summons to the glad reunion in the great beyond.
