She was married to Lafayette Banks in Feb. 1887 and leaves a husband and three small children, a father, several brothers and sisters and a host of friends to mourn her death but we sorrow not as those who have no hope for we know that our loss is her great gain. She died of that dread disease, consumption, she was sick for a long time, but bore her affliction patiently and waited for the end to come. She was a loving wife and mother and will be sadly missed by husband and little ones. May God comfort and sustain them in their bereavement. Alice A. Jones.
