OBITUARY - BARROWS--At his residence near Morse's Mills, Jeff. Co., Mo.,
March 7, 1881, of congestion of the bowels, Samuel M. BARROWS, aged
about 41(?) years.
Mr. BARROWS was well and favorably known throughout the county,
and very popular among his most intimate acquaintances. He has been for
several years engaged in merchandising, farming and trading, and thus a
great many persons had opportunities of forming estimates of his
character, and those estimates have all been favorable. His death is a
great loss to the community, and his family will have the sincere
sympathy of their large circle of friends. He was married about 14
years ago to Miss Ella MORSE, daughter of David MORSE, Esq. To them six
children have been born, five of whom survive. He has a father, aged
about 80, and two sisters in this county. It is sad to see a man in the
prime of life, engaged in successful and useful business and surrounded
by an interesting and loving family, thus stricken down in the midst of
his usefulness, but it is one of the dispensations of providence which
must be endured although it is not understood.
PORTER.--At the residence of her father S.H. MEAD(?), near Rush Tower,
Mo., March 2, 1881. Mrs. Anna(?) L., wife of E.W. PORTER, aged 23 years.
To her father, mother, brothers and sisters, the loss is a
grievous one, but to her husband and two little children what bitter
anguish and sorrow. So lovely, kind and gentle, she seemed unfit for
earth, and was called away to join the sweet angel band. Her death had
no sting, for religion was her nature, and the sweet smile upon her
face--that the pangs of death had no power to conquer--spoke of
happiness that no language can express. The Reaper has gathered a
flower in the sheaves. THE ONE WHO KNEW HER BEST.

and kind. To the inevitable we must all submit though it be with
