From an unnamed and undated Nebraska newspaper:
Our beloved friend, Miss Rose H. Fancher, who went east
several months ago for an extended visit, died at the home of her aunt,
Mrs. L. P. Brainard, near Rome, New York, after two weeks illness from
a tumor in her side.
She bore her terrible suffering patiently and died as
she had lived, a devout christain. Her last words - "Open the window, they
are calling me - good by - I'm on the Rock" - assure us that she heard
the Summons Home, and was prepared to meet her God. The loving hands of
friends and relatives laid her to rest in a lovely, white velvet casket,
laden with beautiful flowers. She sleeps beside her grandmother and other
relatives in Wright's Settlement Cemetery.
Mother, Sisters, and Brothers hearts are rent with grief
by the loss of their loved companion. Friends and acquaintances will
miss her bright face and helpful hands, but Heaven has only claimed one
more pure angel to lure us on to Glory.
"Blessed are the dead that die in the Lord." Her
Memorial will be held in Johnstown, Sunday, May 31st at the M.E. Church.

FITCH -- Edward A. FITCH was born in Palmyra, Oswego Co., N.Y., April
13, 1843; in 1867 was converted and joined the Methodist Episcopal Church,
and in 1868 was married with Maria E. BABCOCK. Of this union three
children were born; two of them with their mother are left behind sorrowing
but not without hope. One had gone before. For years Syracuse
was their home but in 1885 he came to Indiana and settled in Cannelton,
Perry county. On Sabbath evening, March 4, calmly, peacefully, he
entered into rest. "Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord; even
so saith the Spirit, for they rest from their labors and their works do

William Floyd Sr.
William Floyd, Sr., was born at Westernville, NY, Aug. 27, 1858.
His father, William Floyd was a grandson of Gen. William Floyd who was
one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence from New York, and
fought in the Revolutionary War. The father was also one of the forty-niners
during the gold rush to California.
Floyd attended school in Westernville but had a great
desire to go to the western country then being settled. In April
1883, he came to Dakota territory and was one of the first homesteaders
in what is now western Sully county. In November of that year he
returned to New York and was married to Frances L. Woodruff of Bellport,
Long Island, returning with his bride to his homestead. To this marriage
five children were born, all of whom survive. They are Mrs. Frances
Christensen of Pierre, Mrs. Sadie E. Wagner of Long Beach, Cal., William
Floyd, Jr., and Charles Floyd, who operate the original homestead, and
Alden W. Floyd of Pierre. His wife, Frances L. died Nov. 26, 1913,
and in 1925 he married Clara B. Mateer, of Pierre, who survives him.
During the years 1888 to 1894 he held a contract
to supply meat to the army post at Fort Sully. In 1899 he served
a term as treasurer of Sully county, and he served two terms as a representative
from Sully county in the state legislature. He was a director of
the Pierre National Bank for more than 30 years.
In 1921 because of an asthmatic ailment he went
to Long Beach, Cal., to spend the winter months, returning each summer
until 1946 when the trip became burdensome because of his age.
Floyd was well known for his kindly attitude toward
others, and for his ambitious and courageous character. He was a
devoted Christian, a member of the Presbyterian church and in later years
a faithful attendant of the Long Beach Men's Bible Class.
He died at St. Mary's hospital in Long Beach earlier
this week. The body is being brought to South Dakota for burial in
the Okobojo cemetery.
(Note: William Floyd died May 15, 1950 at the age of 91. He and
his wife Frances were eventually moved from the Okobojo cemetery in Sully
Co, South Dakota to their final resting place in Riverside cemetery in
Pierre, Hughes Co, South Dakota.)
