      NOTES:

      Wilma FOLTZ provided copies of two obituaries for Sarah WEIR.

      [The first obituary is as follows:]

      Sarah E. WEIR, daughter of Adam and Harriet MOW, was born in Richland township, Nov. 9, 1869, and departed this life at her home south east of Richland Center, Indiana, January 22, 1929, aged 59 years. two months and 13 days.

      She was united in marriage to George W. Weir on August 29, 1888. To this union four children were born. They all survive except Grethel, who passed to the world beyond in infancy. When 15 years of age she was converted and united to the Grandview Evangelical church and a few years later removed her membership to the Richland Center M.E. church.

      On Sept. 24, 1927, the death angel hovered over the home and soon removed the spirit of the husband and companion of her life. The separation was hard to bear but with the faith of her Christ as her anchor and her face set toward the Heavenly City, she traveled onward toward that city. During her suffering she expressed to her Pastor, "that in this last hour of her life, with intense suffering and pain, her strength and comfort was in Christ, and that she had her cross to bear, that someday she would be set free from this body of flesh," and she lifted her voice in the words of the poet:

      Must Jesus bear the cross alone,
      And all the world go free?
      No, there's a cross for everyone,
      And there's a cross for me.

      The consecrated cross I'll bear,
      Till death shall set me free.
      And then go home, my crown to wear,
      For there's a crown for me.

      Oh, Precious cross, oh glorious crown,
      Oh Resurrection Day,
      Ye angels from the stars come down
      And bear my soul away.

      Upon the the crystal pavement, down,
      At Jesus' blessed feet,
      With joy I'll cast my golden crown,
      And his dear name repeat.

      By faith she discerned the blessed world where there is no night, and hope and patience awaited the morning. It has now come. Hers was a long night. There were times when the night was dark when her soul travailed in the suffering of the flesh, but the morning came, it dawned with unearthly splendor, she passed from this Vale of tears and sorrow, to await the coming of her children.

      She leaves to mourn her departure, three sons, Harold, of Richland Township, Herman, at home, and Howard of South Bend, also a foster daughter, Mrs. Bertha Wilhelm, of Hammond. Two grandchildren, three brothers, J.S. Mow of Cornelius, Oregon, D.B. Mow and M.L. Mow of Richland Township and many friends.

      Funeral services were conducted by Rev. H.L. Adams of Leiters Ford, at the Richland Center M.E. Church, on Thursday. Burial in the IOOF Cemetery.

      [The second obituary is set forth in Note (2) below.]
