Jordan, Ione Sigourney

Ione Sigourney Jordan

Notes for Ione Sigourney JORDAN-172

Problem: Is the first name Ione or Ona?

HENTHORNE - On Sunday morning, April 10, 1882, at 3 o'clock, of typhoid fever, Ona S., wife of John W. Henthorne, in the 21st year of her age.

Mrs. Henthorne leaves behind her a husband and sweet little babe, together with a large circle of friends and relatives to mourn their irreparable loss. Mrs. Henthorne had lived amidst the people among whom she died for several years and was beloved and highly respected by all who knew her. We have been acquainted with the deceased since her residence here, and can say in truth that she was one of the most amiable, accomplished and intelligent ladies with whom we have ever met. "Tis sad, very sad, to see the heart-stricken husband and friends gather around the bed of a dying wife and friend and imprint the last fond kiss upon her cold, pale cheek. "Tis more and to lie down and die in spring time when the birds are warbling forth their richest notes, and the flowers of April are sending upon zephyr wings their sweetest fragrance. Her remains were followed to their last resting place by an unusually large procession of sympathizing relatives and friends.

The dear little babe is only about three months old and never knew a mother's care, but

Kind friends will check the little one's tears,
And help her brave the storm,
Strong arms will guard her tender years
And shield her from all harm.

Sleep sweetly mother, 'till we meet again
Beyond the other shore;
Sad hearts will all be happy then,
We'll meet to part no more.
