Obituary:  Mrs. Sally Howard Dead
An Old and Highly Esteemed Resident of Columbus
Tuesday afternoon Mrs. Sally Howard died at her home in Columbus. She was within a few days of being 97 years old. Eight weeks ago the venerable lady fell and broke her leg. She was attended to by Dr. R. N. Seaver, and the fracture knit together nicely and was becoming a sound limb, but the injury at her advanced age was a great shock to her system and her death was owing to that and the necessity of confinement. She was buried Wednesday afternoon at 2 o'clock. The deceased was the mother of William B. Howard, the first treasurer of the E.A.U. Ivory Howard of Michigan and Mrs. Ewer of Minneapolis, Minn. For fully 70 years she has been a resident of Columbus. Her maiden name was Bassett. She came with her husband Isaac Howard, from Chenango County, N.Y., about 1820 and settled on what is now known as the Chapin farm, on the Wrightsville road where the old Lozen Mill was built. Geo Howard, Peter Howard and Phillip Howard, brothers of Isaac came also to this section with their families about this time, all pioneers of Columbus of township and vicinity. The made a strong impress upon that locality. Aunt Sally was the last to go to that just reward that awaits the faithful and true in heart through a long life well done, full of good deeds and struggles well won. Her husband preceded her about 12 years and she leaves behind a large number of grandchildren and great grandchildren. All the years of her long life she has enjoyed the love and respect of all who knew her . She possessed many sterling qualities of mind and heart. She was a good woman all her days and had a firm sunny belief in future existence.
Her belief in immortality was immovable.
