BREWSTER, Sarah “Sallie” SIMPSON – Sudden Death of Mrs. Hiram Brewster – Mrs. Sallie Brewster, wife of Hiram Brewster, died at their home on Cove Creek Monday morning at 10 o’clock. Mrs. Brewster had been in failing health for about two years, the most of which time she was confined to her bed. For ten days previous to her death she suffered an acute pain in her left knee, which she supposed was an attack of rheumatism. Monday morning however, she arose as usual and was able to go about the house until 8 o’clock, when the pain left her knee and settled in the back of her head, rendering her unconscious until death relieved her of her suffering about 10 o’clock.

She was the daughter of Mr. Jack Simpson, deceased, and was born and reared in the house in which she died. She was 57 years of age and is survived by one son, Thomas Brewster, who lived with his parents, three sisters, Mrs. J.H. Marlar, Mrs. George W. Nixon of Prairie Grove and Mrs. Lafayette Brewster of Cane Hill.

The funeral took place Wednesday afternoon at 3 o’clock, conducted by Rev. J.P. Crozier of the C.P. Church, of which the deceased was a member, and the interment was made in the family graveyard.
