"Seney Items"
It is with great sorrow that we chron-
icle the death of Mrs. W.S. Freeman of
Fredonia, who died Wednesday night
the 24th [May]. Mrs. Freeman was a kind
and a gentle and affectionate
wife and mother and just in the prime
of womanhood, being 26 years old. Her
death brings a great sorrow on our com-
munity. While we extend our deep sym-
pathy to the bereaved husband, we feel
that they afford but small comfort and
we point to Him who can comfort in our
greatest trials. Mrs. Freeman leaves
two small boys one a baby about two
weeks old. The funeral took place at
the M. E. Church, Friday at 2 o'clock
and the remains were interred in the
Seney cemetery. Rev. Edgar conduct-
ed the service and a very large con-
course of friends were present.
