Olive Briggs

DIED -- In Valparaiso, Porter county, Ind., Jan. 12, 1854, Mrs. OLIVE BRIGGS, wife of C. H. Briggs, in the 39th year of her age.

Sister Briggs experienced religion in early life, and joined the M. E. church, of which she remained a worthy member until her death. Her constant and arduous labors of love have ever been marked with signal success, endearing her to the hearts of those within the range of her influence. Her love for the poor, and special aid in time of need, has seldom been surpassed by her neighbors. Her last sickness was lung fever, and she was called to suffer much; but she died in peace. "Blessed are the dead who died in the Lord." She has left to mourn their loss, a husband and five children, and one an infant.

Jesus can make a dying bed
Feel soft as downy pillows are;
While on his breast she leaned her head,
and breathed her life out sweetly there.

D. C.
