  • Notes 
    • Obituary:
      Tirzah Emma, oldest daughter of Robert F. and Sineche V. Harris, was bo r n near Bath, N.Y., April 6, 1853, going with her parents in early child ho od to Potter County, Pennsylvania. At the age of twenty she united i n mar riage to John Hunt, which union was blessed with two daughters, Pru denc e and Effie, and three sons, Hartley, Walter and Herbert. Six year s ago t hey came to Cuba, where they have since made their home.

      Mrs. Hunt was a woman of lovely Christian character. Her sweet fidelit y t o her duty and quiet submission in times of trial made her greatly be love d by all that have known her. The wise, true, loving wife and mothe r tha t she was made her counsel and example of untold value.

      Most of her married life was spent in Pennsylvania and it was there th a t her children were born. She was for many years a member of the Free M et hodist church.

      Her health, which had not been good for some time, began rapidly faili n g about February 1, due to toxemia and since then she had gradually gro w n weaker. On the 31st of July she suffered three slight shocks, and whi l e she regained consciousness, never fully recovered, and slipped awa y o n August 8, when she fell into a gentle sleep and thus passed to th e lif e beyond.

      Her funeral, which was held from the home Sunday afternoon at 3:00 o'clo c k, was largely attended, many coming from the old home at Genessee, Pa . D r. Charles Haines of the M.E. church, delivered a most comforting add ress . Interment was made in the Cuba cemetery.
