FRANCIS E. BARBER
Died, at her home in Christie, Clark County, Wis., Mrs. J. L. Barber, Nov. 29, 1901.
She was born in Booton, N.J., Aug. 30, 1831. She was married to J. L. Barber in 1846, and their first housekeeping was at Horsehead, N.Y. In 1851 they moved to Hayton, Calumet Co., Wis., where they purchased 80 acres of wild land and remained there until 1884, when they moved to Christie, Clark Co., Wis., and have resided there up to the time of her death. On Nov. 15th she was about the stove doing some work and in a moment's time she discovered herself afire, and before the flames could be put out, her right hand, arm and shoulder extending to the knees, were burned so badly as to leave the flesh bare. She was beyond medical aid, and remained a great sufferer until the Great Physician called her home.
She leaves a husband, four sons, three daughters, two brothers, one sister, grandchildren and many friends to mourn her loss.
The funeral was held at Christie, Sunday, Dec. 1st, Rev. Kloster officiating. The remains were laid to rest in Weston Cemetery.
