OBITUARY: Harriet Cundiff (1898)

from the Jamestown Press (Jamestown, Indiana) – issue of Friday, December 23, 1898 – page 1, column 6:

Mrs. Harriett Cundiff, mother-inlaw of Dr. O.B. Johnson, died at her home in Lizton Wednesday morning of cancer of the face, of which she has been afflicted for thirteen years. She was an estimable lady and loved by all who knew her. P.B. Smith, our embalmer, went over and prepared the body for burial.

from the Jamestown Press (Jamestown, Indiana) – issue of Friday, January 6, 1899 – page 1, column 5:

[Lizton items]
Mrs. Harriet A. Cundiff was born January 11, 1835. At the age of 14 she joined the Christian church at Lizton and remained a faithful member until her death. She was married in 1850. Two children are living, one died in childhood. Mrs. Cundiff has been a great suffer [sic] for several years past, being afflicted with cancer in her eye. Friends say no one ever heard a word of complaint or murmuring during all the long days and nights of intense agony. She was buried at the cemetery one-half mile east of town, Dec. 22.
