Ettie May Clodfelter BUSENBARK

Source: Crawfordsville Review Crawfordsville, Montgomery County, Indiana Saturday, May 9, 1885

Ettie May Clodfelter was born April 15th 1864, was married to Joseph Busenbark, April 9th 1885 [sic - 1884], having been married but a little more than a year. She leaves behind to mourn her untimely death, an aged mother, three sisters, two brothers, an infant son, and a kind and loving husband, who did all in his power to relieve her suffering. She suffered untold misery for eleven weeks, but no one ever heard a murmur from her lips. She bore all with patience and Christian fortitude. It seems bard that one so young, so pure and so kind should be cut down in the bloom of womanhood, yet God knows best and we must say "Thy will be done, not mine." She was dressed as she was when she started away on her bridal tour and her body placed in an elegant white casket and borne from the hearse to the Christian church by her young associates, as pallbearers, where Rev. W. D. Owen preached a very consoling sermon. She was then taken to Oak Hill cemetery and laid to rest by the side of her father, whom she loved so well. - kbz
