Thursday, June l3, l900

MARIA A. BRANT was born in Crawford County, Ohio, June l3, l840, and died at Coin, Ia., March 28, l900. When l5 years of age she removed from Ohio, with her parents, ISAAC and ELIZABETH MILLER, and settled at High Point, Iowa, where she has continuously lived all these years. On February 3d, l856, she was united in marriage to OLIVER BRANT, who died l7 years ago. Of this union there were born seven children, five of whom are still living.

She united with the M.E. Church when she was 25 years of age and for nearly thirty-five years has been a very consistent, though quiet and unobtrusive, follower of the Master.

While on a visit to her daughter, she was taken seriously and suddenly ill, and after a few days' illness, without any consciousness of the nearness of death, she fell asleep to wake in eternity. The funeral services were conducted in the High Point, M.E. Church by her Pastor, Rev. I.N. Woodard, Wednesday, May 30th.
