Ringgold Record, 1883

OBITUARY.

Catherine Ann PHILLIPS was born at Amsterdam, N.Y., Nov. 4th, 1821. Her mother died when she was quite young, and she went to live with her Uncle Van BUREN, at Albany. She lived with him till she was sixteen, then went to Birmingham, Ohio, and lived with another uncle, Mr. HARRISON, three years. Then she went to Monmouth, Ill, where she was married, Nov. 11, 1841, to J. S. PAXTON. With the exception of a residence of five years in Missouri, they lived in Monmouth till two years ago, when they moved to Mt. Ayr. She was the mother of seven children, six girls and one boy, and five of them with her husband live to mourn her death. At about the age of 18 she united with the church and lived and died in the christian's faith. The funeral services were conducted by Rev. TEDFORD of the U.P. church on Friday afternoon at 1 o'clock, attended by a very large concourse of friends, after which the body was interred in the south [Rose Hill] cemetery [Mount Ayr].

"Happy the company that's gone
From cross to crown, from thrall to throne.
How loud they sing upon the shore
To which they sailed in heart before.
"Bless'd are the dead - yea, saith the Word,
That die in Christ, the living Lord;
And on the other side of death
Thus joyful spend their praising breath.
"Death from all death has set us free
And will our gain forever be;
Death loos'd the massy chain of woe
To let the mournful captives go.
"Death is to us a sweet repose;
The bud was op'd to show the rose;
The cage was broke to let us fly.
And build our happy rest on high."
