In this village, Fedruary (sic) 7, 1866, of Liver Complaint, Lydia, wife of C. T. Wilkinson, aged 67 years.
Deceased was a “Mother in Israel.” After following her Saviour more than forty years, she has at last laid down the Cross and gone home to take up the “Crown of righteousness,” which awaits all who love our blessed Lord. As in her life, so in her death she found Jesus of Nasareth (sic) a present, perfect and Almighty Saviour.
Redeemed, renewed, forgiven,
Her spirit was, and ripe for Heaven.
