Mrs. Martha A. Moore died on February 11, 1918, in Montezuma, Iowa, after a few days illness. Martha A. Sharp was 67 years and 9 days old at the time of her death. She was married to George W. Moore on July 3, 1861, in Montezuma, where they continued to reside. To this union seven children were born, three sons and four daughters. Only one daughter, Mrs. Sarah McVery, of Graham, Kansas, is now living. The sons are: Frank E. of Protection, Homer of Minnesota and William of Montezuma. Mrs. Moore was a consistent christian, having united with the Methodist church 20 years ago, and she continued under life's heavy burdens to "walk in the light." Husband and children, be comforted Mother has gone from us, but she is not forgotten. There is another vacant place in our home, but mother is at rest from worldly sorrow and care. Let us live to meet her where there is no parting but sweet life eternal.
