ago she was taken ill with the grippe, which with other complications, finally resulted in nervous prostration, causing her death.

her parents in 1856, where she was married October 17, 1872, to J. S. EVERETT. They came to Mt. Ayr in 1873 and have since
resided here. Mr. EVERETT's death occured about one year ago. There were two children born to them, a son Frank, now employed
as a stenographer by Henry & Spence; a daughter Mary, in school. Mrs. EVERETT was a good Christian, but not a member of any church.
Her life was one of kind acts and noble deeds.
The funeral services were conducted Saturday at 2 o'clock p.m. from the home by
