In 1865 they came to Millers, which has been her home the greater part of the time until 1884, when they came to Chesterton. She was an arden christian woman, patient and kind. The disease which resulted in her death was cancer in the stomach, and which gave her extreme pain, but was endured with the same patience that characterized her life.
