DIED:-- At her residence in Riley township, Ringgold county, Iowa, on the 20th day of Jan., 1883, of appolexy, Mrs. Abi LIVERMORE. Age
fifty-six years, three months and twenty-six days.
Abi BABB was born in Luzeane county, Penn. From whence, at the age of thirteen years,
she came to Iowa, living in Des Moines, Louisa and Ringgold counties, respectfully, from that time on until her death. When
twenty-one years old, she was united in the bonds of matrimony with Jairur LIVERMORE, of Vermont, with whom she lived happily
for sixteen years. But in Dec., 1862, pneumonia took from her, her kind and affection husband. And she was left a widow, with
seven small children, the youngest being only one yera old. The funeral services were held at the Biggony school house on the 22nd, and was attended
by a great number of friends and acquaintances, who only "knew to love." Christian consolation was offered by Rev. WATSON and STONE.
"Our mother through that vale has gone.
Whose shadows lie so dark and deep;
Its mysteries to explore alone,
And leave us here to wail and weep.
