The Chariton Leader, Chariton, Iowa
Thursday, May 30, 1907

JOSEPHINE MILLAN, fifth daughter of HENRY and CAROLINE MILLAN, was born in Fairfax County, Virginia, near the District of Columbia, and died at her home in Chariton Sunday after a short illness with paralysis. In early
childhood she moved with her parents to Palmyra, Mo., where she received her education. After the civil war the family came to Chariton, where she has since resided.

JOSEPHINE was widely known, having been in the millinery business in this city for twenty-five years, retiring from business a few years since. She was a member of the Episcopal Church and a true Christian woman. By her many deeds of kindness and gentle manner she had endeared herself to a large circle of friends, by whom she will be sadly missed. She leaves three sisters, MRS. SUSANNA CUSTER, MISS MAGGIE MILLAN and MRS. POCAHONTAS HOOPER, and one brother, HENRY F. MILLAN, to mourn the loss of a loved and loving sister.

Funeral services, conducted by Rev. Hakes, of the Episcopal Church, and Rev. Evans of the Methodist Church, were held at the home on, Tuesday afternoon, at 2:00 o'clock, and the remains laid to rest in the Chariton Cemetery. The sympathy of the community is extended to the bereaved ones.
