The Ringgold Record, 1872
Died, at Mt. Ayr, Iowa, on the 1st day of November, 1872, Sarah J. F. TILBURY, wife of
Rev. C. TILBURY, aged 31 years, 4 months and 25 days.
The subject of the above notice was formerly Sarah J. E. McKIBBEN and was born in
Seneca County, Ohio, June 6th, 1841, from whence she removed with her parents to
Hillsdale County, Michigan, at the age of sixteen, and two years thereafter was married
and during the same year removed with her husband to Champaign County, Illinois. During
their residence there she united with the Baptist Church. After a residence of eight
years as above, they again removed to Alton, Illinois, where she labored hard and
thereby assisted her now disconsolate husband in procuring the means necessary to
educate him for the ministry. During her life she was called to part with five
children, and through all this flood of sorrow she never murmered or complained, but
submitted to the dispensations of Providence as becomes all who profess the love of
Christ. She has now but followed those near and dear to her and leaves a mother, two
brothers, a husband and two small children to mourn the loss of her who was ever their
kind friend and helper.
NOTE: Sarah J. F. (McKIBBEN) TILBURY was interred at
Rose Hill Cemetery, Mount Ayr, Ringgold County, Iowa.
