At 6 o'clock Monday morning Mrs. Elizabeth Price, widow of the late David Price, expired at her
home on the Mexico Road farm about four miles west of this village. Five weeks ago she was
taken ill with dropsical trouble about the heart, which was the cause of her death. She had
been more then ordinarily blessed with good health during her long existence, and seldom if
ever before her final sickness was she under the doctor's care.
Mrs. Price was formerly Miss Elizabeth Carleton, daughter of James and Eleanora Carleton. She
was born in County Mead, Ireland, October 25, 1825, and came to this country with her parents
when she was 22 years of age. They came directly to this town and she had always remained here.
On June 1, 1854 she became the wife of David Price, who died January 24, 1872. For 50 years
she had resided on the farm where she died Mrs. Price was highly respected and her death will be
much regretted. She was a member of Trinity Episcopal church, a kind neighbor and loving
mother. Besides a large circle of friends she leaves to mourn her loss five children - Charles
J. and Walter Price of Chico, Cal., D. Sidney Price, Mrs. Sarah Patchen and Mrs. William Wall
of Camden. A son James William, who died in California two years ago, and a daughter, who died
at the age of 9 years, were the remainder of the seven children born to Mrs. Price. She also
leaves two brothers, John R. and James Carleton of this town, and 12 grandchildren
and 1 great-grandchild.
The funeral is to be held today at 12 o'clock from her late home and her remains interred in
Forest Park Cemetery.
