Mrs. Jennie E. Holmes-Butterfleld,
wife ot Benjamin F. Butterfleld, died
at her home at this place Monday
morning, after a brief Illness. An at
tack of measles followed by a series ot
complications resulted In her death,
but even those who saw her dally and
were with her constantly had firm
hopes of her ullmate recovery, and the
news of her sudden and untimely death
came like a shock all. Mrs. Butterfleld,
whose maiden name was Jennie E. Hol
mes, was born at Westbrookvllle, Sul
livan county, N. Y., June 4, 1848, thus
being at the time of her death 49 years
of age. She was married to B. F. But
terfleld at Wertsboro N. Y., Oct. 11,
1876. She had lived a Elmhurst for
about ten years, and during that time
made a host of friends. She was a liv
ing type of a true woman, and set an
example In her dallj' walk worthy of
Imitation. A faithful, devoted wife, a
kind and affectionate mother, a sym
pathetic friend and neighbor, nn earn
est Christian, who lived her religion
from day to day, the community has
lost In Mrs. Butterfleld one whoso place
cannot be easily filled. She Tf-aves be
hind her a husband and two sons,
George, aged 19, and Frank, aged 14.
She also leaves a widowed mother, who,
In the death of Mrs. Butterfleld, has
lost her only child. All these were with
her at the time of her death, and in
this dark hour, which has come to
them they have the sympathy of the
entire community. Funeral services
were held at her late home on Main
street, Wednesday morning. Rev. S.
Guy Snowden, of the Moscow Metho
dist Episcopal church, conducted the
services. A quartette, consisting of
Mrs. E. W. Davis, Miss Lucy Fulton,
Mr. John D. Fuller and Dr. J. W.
Kuedler, beautifully rendered two se
lections, "Nearer My God To Thee"
and "Shall We Meet Beyond the Riv
er?" Tho beautiful casket in which ithe
remains rested was completely covered
with flowers, the gifts of loving friends.
After the services the remains were
taken In charge by Undertaker C. F.
Edwards and conveyed to Clark's Green
for burial. Mr. Butterfleld and .family
wish, through the press to -thank most
heartily the friends and neighbors who
so kindly and generously came to their
assistance In the time of their trouble
and whoso tender sympathy and will
ing hands lightened their burdens dur
ing the sickness, death and burial ot
'their loved one. Those present at the

Holmes, from Mlddletown, N. Y.; Mrs.
