Dolly Bullock

Passed to a higher life at the residence of Geo. Rawson in Valparriso, Mrs. Dolly Bullock, aged 80 years, 4 months and 23 days, mother of Mrs. Geo. Rawson and sister of Harry Kimball, of this county. She was born in V. T. and at the age of 16 was married to Daniel Bullock, lost her husband in Huron co., O., in March, 1854, since which time she has been a widow. She was the mother of 13 children, 7 boys and 6 girls. Of these only 1 son and 2 daughters survive. The son lives in the far west. None but the two daughters, Mrs. Rawson and Mrs. Wm. Williams, were present to witness the burial scene. To sum up her obituary in a few words, she was a woman whose life was thickly strewn with cares, full of sorrows and acquainted with grief, yet amid all she has well borne afflictions, and with an ever willing hand and loving heart contributed largely to the comfort and happiness of those around her. For the past several years she has been a firm believer in the communion of departed spirits, which she professed to richly enjoy. In her last moments she folded her own arms, closed her own eyes, and without a struggle calmly passed to the other shore, bidding adieu to earth and friends with a strong faith that a higher, nobler and better life awaited her, leaving beside her 3 children, 2 brothers and 1 sister to rejoice over her peaceful departure and her new birth.
