A Tribute. "She is dead'' were the sad words whispered gone to the home she with Christian fortitude sought to enter though loth to leave behind the dear children and loving husband, brothers and sisters and to-day we pay the last tribute of respect to her memory. Mrs. Susan Marksbury. She was born in Bedford February, 1866, soon after came to Crawfordsville with mother, father, three sisters and one brother, Mrs. John Snyder, Mrs Mary Kaper, Mrs. Charles Galey, and Harry McKeown, and Agnes Britton, her maiden name was Susan Mckeown, on July 1890 was married to Joshua Marksbury. Three children were born to them now nine, seven and the baby, fifteen months old. Only a few days ago she was seemingly well, attending her sick little boy. Pneumonia set in from a severe cold and death resulted Monday evening. As a Christian Mrs. Marksbury was prompt and efficient to every motherly duty. Teaching her little to love God and respect the teachings of our Savior. These little ones will soon realize the loss of their good mother. She was loved by all who knew her and will be missed from among us but by none more than her loving husband, that patriotic brave old soldier and the little offsprings left motherless. A large circle of neighbors and friends brother and sisters have words of loving sympathy and prayers that are earnest and true to them for wife and mother who now rests in heaven. The funeral was conducted Wednesday by Dr. Tharp and burial at Oak Hill. - kbz
