Flora Curtis

Flora, daughter of Russell Curtis and wife, was born in Porter county January 26th, 1866, and died at the home of her parents March 10th, 1883. She had been the subject of a frail constitution for several years, and fell a victim to lung fever as the bud of life was developing into the fair blossoms of womanhood. Flora was a good girl and died trusting in the Savior of sinners who accept Him. When her parents, brothers and sisters stood round her weeping and she was apparently sinking she revived and looking up into their faces smiled and repeated these lines of Watts:

Jesus can make a dying bed,
Feel soft as downy pillows are;
While on the breast I lean my head,
And breath my life out sweetly there.

Her funeral was preached on the 10th inst. at the Baptist church at Blatchley's Corners by Rev. G. M. Boyd to a large congregation of sympathizing friends and neighbors.
