Obituary Collection

Miss Lucy Ann Wassam was born at Smithport, Penn., Dec. 8, 1851, and departed this life Tuesday evening, Oct. 21, at 11 o'clock.

She grew to womanhood at Smithport and was married to Simon Connor, May 28, 1868. They made Smithport their home until they homesteaded and moved to Nebr. in 1884.

To this union eleven children were born. Ten boys and one girl, also one adopted girl. She leaves to morn her loss, her sons, Milton E. of Topeka, Kans., Adam Earl, Farnam, Nebr., Isaac I., Ray, Colorado., Simon R., Mizola, Mont., Wilber R., Wilsonville, Nebr., Charles S, Smithferry, Idaho, James A., of Wilsonville, John A., Brookfield, Wash., Henry Arthur, Portland Oregon, and Mrs. S.K. Brown of Farnam with whom she has made her home.

She was converted early in life and united with the Evangelical church. She was a firm believer in the word of God, and was one who tried to please her Lord and Master.

Her daily life was a testimony for him who she loved and with whom she has gone to dwell.

Funeral services were held at the house today at 10 o'clock, by Rev. Craig, Pastor of the Congregational church. Interment was made in the Evergreen Cemetery south of Eustis.

We extend sympathy to them in this hour of sorrow, and rejoice that a well spent life has entered into rest.

Pillowed on the Savior's breast
    Softly sleep or gently rest.
Soon the morning will restore
    The darling mother we adore.
