Source: Crawfordsville Weekly Journal, 1 September 1888

Mrs. Sarah June Mack, wife of James B. Mack, died at her home in this city, at 10:30 p.m., August 29, after a. long and tedious struggle with consumption, at the age of 66 years. The maiden name of the deceased was Sarah J. Rogers. She was born in Butler county, Ohio, January 4, 1822, and her childhood was spent in that state. She was married to James B. Mack, who survives her, December 14, 1843. In 1845, two years after their marriage, the couple came to this county, where Mr. Mack engaged in farming, a business In which he made a marked success. His wife was a help mate in every sense of the word, and to her counsel and advice much of his success is due. In 1852 they settled on the farm of 220 acres, four miles south of the city, where they resided until a few years since, when they removed to this city, locating in the handsome property, corner of John and College streets, living a retired and quiet, life. The fruit of the marriage was six children, five of whom are living, one dying in infancy. Those living are one son, Charles Mack. The daughters are Mrs. Charles Edward. Mrs. Dan Martin, Mrs. Arch Martin and Miss Lena, at home. Mrs. Mack was a member of no church, being very liberal in her views and striving to act as conscious dictated. Her friends and neighbors will all bear witness to her kindness of heart, her sympathy in affliction and her honest, earnest endeavors to do right. Among those with whom she mingled life,, there is sorrow, for all recognized in her the sterling qualities of mankind unbiased and unhampered. Her loss will be felt, not only by those to whom she was near and dear, bound by ties of consanguinity, but. those bound by cords invisible though strong.—those of friendship, which are oftentimes stronger says the poet than those of blood and kinship. The funeral took place from the residence at. two o'clock Thursday afternoon. Services conducted by Rev.J. P. Ewing. Interment at Oak Hill. - thanks to Kim H.
