    the autumn of 1862 and now lives in the state of Washington. The early days of the deceased in Green County

    were spent in teaching school. She was married to Franklin J. Burt on March 17, 1850. Four children were born

    to them, two of whom, with her husband, survive to mourn their loss. She was one of the best wives and one of

    the kindest mothers. Her home was her great delight and she made it a great delight to all who came under its

    roof. She was hospitable and kind; always ready to sympathize with those who were in trouble and always ready

    to help those who were in need. She found great pleasure in doing good. After her marriage in 1850 she located

    her home at Jordan Prairie where she died on Jan. 3, 1899 aged 72 years, 2 months and 6 days.
