... Sunday morning the sad news flashed over the wires that Miss Fannie CUMMINGS had passed to her Heavely home. Fannie had spent her entire life in Buchanan township. At an early age in life she was bereft of a loving mother's care and, Oh, how bravely, she took upon her young shoulders the household cares and succeeded in making the home pleasant for the father and three brothers.

The first awful affliction came upon the family when the brother, George, was thrown from a load of hay with a runaway team and was killed. A few years later Charles died and but a few short months ago the last surviving son and brother, Will, died very suddenly. That leaving the aged father and Fannie alone. And now Fannie, the last and only child is taken from the aged parent. And today Samuel CUMMINGS, who has passed his three score years and ten, has lived to bury his last child. Everyone's sympathy goes out to him, he being a true Christian and is leaning on the strong arms of Christ.
