Bucklin Journal, February 23, 1889


Died, at her home four miles northwest of Bucklin, on February 19, 1889, Mrs. Ella Gresham, aged 26 years, 2 months and 15 days.

Mrs. Gresham has been sick for sometime with consumption, but bore her sickness with Christian fortitude.

She was a member of the M. E. church, was converted at the age of 14 years, was prepared for the change and died in full triumph of faith in her Savior.

She leaves a husband and one child and six sisters to mourn her loss, as well as a large number of friends.

We bid her this last farewell with a feeling that our society has lost one of its brightest lights.

Jos. Dellinger.
