Mrs. Marietta Grippen Barrows, widow of Theron Barrows, died quite suddenly April 1 at 7:40 o’clock a.m. of pneumonia, resulting from an attack of the grip. Her last illness dates from only a few days ago. Miss Marietta Grippen was born on the 14th day of July, 1815, in the village of Corinth, N. Y. At the age of 17 she became the wife of Theron Barrows of the same village, then a young man of 19. The marital relations entered into sixty years ago last February by the young couple proved to be most happy and prosperous. Since Mr. Barrows’ decease, on the 19th of last December, the bereaved wife, deprived of a loving life companion, had patiently waited for the end which should bring about a happy reunion. Her death was a calm and peaceful sleep.
A good many years of Mrs. Barrows’ life were spent in Dundee, where she was esteemed as a woman and a sincere Christian. Her religious home since an early age was with the Baptist Church. Mr. and Mrs. Barrows moved to Elgin from Dundee about twenty years ago, residing at No. 123 Fulton Street. Two sons have been born to Mr. and Mrs. Barrows of whom only one, Milton T. Barrows of Dundee
survives. Their grandchildren number five: Mrs. D. Bridge of Elgin, H. A. Barrows, Mrs. A. H. Ketchum, and Miss A. C. Crawford of Nebraska. There are six great grandchildren, two of whom are at present in Dundee with their parents. Mrs. Barrows was the youngest of the family of nine children of whom one sister and two brothers are still living in the East. The funeral services were held Monday afternoon, April 7, at 2 o’clock from the residence. The interment was in the family lot in Dundee cemetery.
