      Mrs. John Cox

      Barbara Elizabethann Mills was born in Douglas township, Madison county, Iowa, August 17, 1859, and passed from the life the morning of January 16, 1929, aged 69 years. She was the daughter of Enos and Elizabeth Baldwin Mills. She spent all her life in Madison county except seven years of her girlhood in Missouri.

      When nineteen years old she united with the Christian church which worshipped in the old stone school house on North creek. She lived and died in quiet faith, trusting her redeemer and Lord, both for this life and that which is to come.

      She was the youngest of a family of nine, of whom there is but one survivor, a sister, Rebecca, Mrs. George Cox. Five stepchildren, whom she mothered, live and love her: Mrs. Harriet Addy, of Earlham; Chas. A. and Leroy Cox, of Winterset; Wm. Riley Cox, of Estelville, South Dakota, and Mrs. Beulah Ellen Cox, of Des Moines. Besides these there are many relatives and friends who will look for "Aunt Barbara's" smiling face when they get to heaven.

      The Rev. W. C. Porter conducted the funeral services at the United Presbyterian church, Thursday, January 17th.
