The Chariton Leader, Chariton, Iowa
Thursday, August 13, 1908

SARAH LANDON was born in Morris County, near Morristown, New Jersey, on June 2, 1827, and died at the home of her daughter, MRS. C.C. FORCE, in Russell, August 6, 1908, at the advanced age of eighty-one years,two months and four days. Her parents died when she was but four years of age, and she made her home in the family of JOHN GOLTRY SR., near Tyrone, New York, until married.

She was united in marriage to AARON H. GOLTRY Sept. 10th, 1854, coming to Lucas County, Iowa, in December, 1854, where they resided on a farm in Cedar Township until the spring of 1875, and has since been a resident of Russell
and Chariton, the latter being her home at the time of her death. Her husband died while in the service of his country in April, 1863. She was the mother of four children, all of whom were with her when the final summons came, and who have the assurance that she has only passed from this life to the world beyond, where suffering and pain and sad partings are unknown. She with her husband united with the Baptist Church in early life and was ever a true follower of the Master.She was always ready to helpthe needy and comfort those in trouble, and no sacrifice was too great for her to make to better the condition of others.

The children who survive her are MRS. NETTIE FORCE of Russell; MRS. EMMA HOMSHER of Chariton; ED L. GOLTRY of Red Oak, and WILL A. GOLTRY of Boone.

She was married to D.S. FORCE Dec. 7, 1867, who died on January 19, 1880. The deceased had been in feeble health the past year but was confined to her bed the last few weeks with cancer of the stomach. Funeral services were
held at the Methodist Church in Russell, Saturday afternoon, conducted by the pastor, Rev. Shenton, and the remains interred in the Russell Cemetery.
