Mrs. Hannah Elizabeth DUSTIN was born in Lisbon, Maine in October 1805 and died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. M.W. RICH 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.
