      Mrs. Alf Cox

      Amanda A. Farris, daughter of Charles and Mary Jane Farris, was born October 26, 1853 in Union township, Madison county, passing away January 8, 1929, at the age of 75 years, 2 months and 12 days.

      At a very early age she was united with a neighborhood Baptist church, which met for services at the old Farris school house. Later there was a Church of Christ organized at Patterson, the Farris family uniting there after the school house organization was discontinued. At the time of her death she was affiliated with the United Presbyterian church of Winterset. She loved to attend church services and was always there when her frail health permitted.

      January 14, 1883 she was united in marriage to Alfred Cox, also of Union township, Madison county. To this union was born two daughters, Albia, who is now Mrs. Chas. Breeding, and Vanna, who is now Mrs. E. C. Farlow, both of Winterset. She also leaves six grandchildren. She is survived by three brothers and a sister, C. L. Farris, of Newport, Oregon; A. M. Farris, of Des Moines; F. D. Farris, of Ansley, Nebraska, and Mrs. Lucy Brittain, of Winterset.

      Mere words cannot express the love and devotion she bestowed on her home and family. In later years when six grandchildren were added to the family circle, her only fault if it can be so called, was in loving them too much.

      This is the first breaking of the family ties. Her husband, children, and grandchildren, are like a ship (unreadable). She was the center of everything and around her the home was built.

      Rev. W. C. Porter conducted the funeral services at the home Thursday afternoon and burial was made in the McDonald cemetery.
