Death of Mrs. Sarah Safford
Since our last issue our Mr. E, D. Safford has received notice of the death of his sister Mrs. Sarah Syfort at Davilla, Texas. This noble lady was born in Liberty, during 1849, and was well known to our older residents. She was married, April 4, 1867 to W. H. C. Hamar, and of this union there was born one son, who died in infancy and was buried in the Liberty cemetery, the following being engraved on his tombstone. "To the memory of my baby Willie Safford Hamer, died Aug. 20, 1868; aged 7 mos, 5 ds. It is well with the child.” Alter the death of Mr. Hamer, Mrs. S. S. Hamer was married June 22, 1871 to Wm. B. Redmond from whom she was divorced during the early nineties. During her married life with Mr. Redmond she traveled over a good part of the United States, but resided quite a while in New Orleans. In 1903 she married a Mr. Crump, a well-to-do Confederate veteran of Davilla, Texas, who died in 1906. In 1910 she married her last husband, a neighbor, who still survives her. The subject of this notice and her twin sister Mrs. Rebeca Yeandle, now of Atlanta, Ga., were two of the most accomplished and popular ladies every reared in Liberty, and were especially popular among young people of their social set. Friends of the one who has gone will regret to hear of her death, but she had her share of trouble, and after life’s fitful fever she sleeps well.
Mrs. A. F. Edgar died in the Presbyterian Hospital in New Orleans late Friday night from the effects of an operation for appendicitis performed on her several weeks ago. She was the mother of Hon. Joseph E. Norwood editor and proprietor of the Magnolia Gazette, of Magnolia, Miss., and sister of Mrs. T. P. Street, of Street. She was buried Saturday afternoon in the Magnolia cemetery. The Herald tenders its deepest sympathy.
