NANCY COOVER, daughter of JAMES and MARY COOVER, was born in Fayette County, Ohio, Sept. 26, l832, and died in Leon, Iowa, March l2, l904, being 7l years, 5 months and l6 days old. In the year l852, the deceased was married to ISAAC D. MILLS. Of this union were born four children, two sons and two daughters. The daughters, FRANCIS and ELIZABETH, died in early womanhood, while the sons WILLIAM and CHARLES survive their mother. After marriage, MRS. MILLS continued to reside in her native county until l857, when with her family, she moved to Decatur County, Iowa, and located in Leon.

A great sorrow overshadowed her life in the loss of her husband, who died Sept. l6, l896; since then her home has been broken up. About a year and a half ago, she had the misfortune to break her hip, which resulted in making her a permanent sufferer until the end of her life. MRS. MILLS was converted and united with the M.E. Church about 50 years ago. Her Christian life has been of the best type. She has been earnest and devoted, and even to the end, while her body was racked with pain, her faith in God enabled her to have a clear spiritual sky. As Jesus said concerning the daughters of James, so it may be said concerning her: "She is not dead but sleepeth." "Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord."

Funeral services were conducted on Monday, March l3th, at 2:30 p.m. by Rev. I.N. Woodward, assisted by Rev. Charles Reeder, and the body was laid to rest in the Leon Cemetery.
