Mrs. Hannah Elizabeth DUSTIN was born in Lisbon,

on Main Street this city December 8, 1899. She was the daughter of
David and Hannah (Stockham) BASSICK. Her parents moved to
New Brunswick when she was eight years old. She married John DOWDELL
of St. George New Brunswick and after his death married Farnham A. DUSTIN
of the same town. Mr. DUSTIN died 35 years ago and 20 years
later she went to Musquash, New Brunswick to live with her daughter Mrs.
Charles CLINCH. She came to Belfast in October 1898.
On the 20th of June 1899, she had an attack of paralysis which affected
her brain and she has been confined to her bed since September 8th.
She joined the Baptist Church in St. George when a young woman and has
been a faithful and consistent member through life. Of her family
of nine children, six remain: Mrs. Julia CLINCH of Musquash,
Horatio DOWDALL of Carleton, New Brunswick, Mrs. Amy D. CLINCH
of Belfast, Mrs. Urania D. HADLEY of Belfast, Jesse F. DUSTIN
of St. Stephens, New Brunswick and Mrs. Idelia RICH of Belfast.
The funeral was held at her late home Sunday afternoon. Rev. Randell
T. Capen officiating. Her sunny and cheerful disposition, ever looking
on the brighter side of life, was beautifully typified in a profusion of
flowers sent in by loving friends who had learned to appreciate her true
worth even in the short time she has lived among us.
