The Kellerton Globe, Kellerton, Iowa
Thursday, March 3, 1898, page 1.

FALLS ASLEEP.

Mrs. Jane SINCOE (sic, should be SINCO) departed this life at her home in Kellerton, Iowa, February 23, 1898, at the good old age of 81 years, 4 months and 7 days.

Jane BENNETT was born in South Carolina, October 12, 1816; moved with her parents to Indiana, where she was married to Henry SINCO, November 19, 1834. Mr. & Mrs. SINCO came to Jefferson Co., Iowa in 1844; then to Garden Grove, Decatur County in 1852 and thence to Ringgold county in 1855, where she remained until her death. She united with the Christian church in 1862 and has been a faithful and zealous member for thirty-six year. She was the mother of eight children, three boys and five girls, five of whom survive, viz; J[ohn]. C. SINCO; Mrs. Maggie BARNES, of Ringgold county; Mrs. Mary E. SCOTT, of Mountain Grove, Mo.; Caroline V. JOHNSON, of Sutherland, Neb.; Charlotte FURGUSON, of South Dakota. Mrs. SINCOE leaves thirty-eight grandchildren and eighteen great grandchildren. Her children, grandchildren & great grand children stood by her bed in the last hours.

The funeral services were held at the Christian Church, February 24, at 2 o'clock p.m. "We're Going Home" was softly played by the organist while the friends and relatives entered the building; then the singers sang "Nearer My God to Thee", then the Twenty-Third Psalm was read by the pastor and Rev. W. C. SMITH, pastor of the M.E. church led in prayer. After prayer, Miss MORELAND sang "Gathering Homeward", Lewis P. KOPP, pastor of Christian church then read 1 Thes. IV. 13-18, and spoke briefly on "our hope for the Christian who has fallen asleep". Rev. W. F. MARK followed with a few, tender, thoughtful and comforting words. The singers then sang "Asleep in Jesus" and "Some Sweet Day". "Home Sweet Home" was softly played as the friends and relatives passed from the building. Interment was at the Kellerton [Maple Row] Cemetery.

Mrs. SINCOE lived in Kellerton twelve years and leaves many warm friends. She was known as a faithful mother, a good neighbor, a true friend, and above all a faithful Christian, whose faith and hope continued to the end and she leaves for us a good Christian record.
