DOBBINS - Mrs Sarah Dobbins Palmer
Mrs. Sarah Dobbins Palmer departed this life Monday, September 3rd, after a prolonged illness of three and one half years. Mrs. Palmer was born July 29th, 1820, within a short distance from the place where she died. All her long life, except a few years spent in Towanda and Granville, was lived in the community where she died. At the age of 24 she was married to Norman Palmer, whom she survived seven years. Shortly after her marriage she united with the church and has since lived a consistent Christian life. She was the mother of five children, all of whom were taken from her by death early in life, save one; Mrs. James VanBuskirk, who survives her mother. Mrs. Palmer was the last of a family of ten and the last of the circle of young people who lived in her community in the early part of this rapidly passing century. Her quiet and godly life, and her strong faith in her last days in the God who had succored her in earlier days of sorrow and affliction, was an inspiration to all who knew her, and a comfort to those mourning her death. The sympathy of the church and community goes out to the daughter, Mrs. James VanBuskirk, and granddaughter, Mrs. Herman Slingerland, in their bereavement. TGR 1900
