Mrs. Sarah Ivey was bom in Macoupin county, Ills. When quite young her father started with his family to Texas, but died on tho way, and was buried at the Hildebrand Mills, injlhe Cherokee nation. The family went on to Texas, but by a strango destiny, she afterwards came back to live on the laud where her father died. Sho was married to A. E. Ivey, in Febuary, 1873, and moved to the nation, but she never knew where her father's grave was until quite recently, ehe being too young when he died to remember much about it. Her death was mentioned in our last issue. She was a perfect lady. Her quiet grace, sweet temper and queenly dignity, always won her respect and admiration. She was singularly affeetionnte and devoted as faithful beyond all praise. She was a member of the Methodist church, in Vinita, and although home duties and cares interfered with her public service of the church, it records bear no name more honored or sacred. Her Christian character will be a mot winning sermon aa long aa ,her memory ia cherished. She wo one of those whom the world can least afford to spare. And yet the more this ia so, the more ia our loaa her eternal gain. In her life she gave her soul to God, and it waa safe in hia keeping. Having been hia, she ia still his, and with him in hia Home.
