To this union nine children were born; six sons--John, Howard, Delmar, Henry Jr., George, and Melvin; three daughters--Edna, Mary, and Helen, all home to comfort her during her illness of about six months, all of which time she was a constant sufferer. all was done for her that medical skill and loving hands could do, but to no avail.
It was a great consolation to her that her daughters, Edna and Mary attended her so faithfully and lovingly during her illness.
She was converted at the age of twenty years, and was baptised into the Church of God, in which faith she remained until her death.

friends. Her father, mother, one brother and two sisters preceded her in death.
