Mrs. Haskell was born in New Salem, Mass., June 25th, 1801, and was married on the 13 day of March 1820. For more than 62 years she had shared the labors, cares, disappointments, hope and enjoyments of life, with the husband of her early choice, a true helper. Traveling the Journey of life together for many years, she was not long separated from her husband by death. She was anxious to be no burden to her friends in her last years and her wish was realized.
