AGED LADY DEAD

Passes From This Life Thursday Afternoon after Short Illness

Thursday afternoon Sarah Ann Carter Haddon, an aged lady of this city, passed away after a short illness, having succumbed to general debility and old age. She was born in Adams County, Illinois, June 5, 1827, and came to Utah in 1851 by ox team in the Captain Mace Company. She remained in Salt Lake until the fall of 1853 when she with other emigrants came to this valley and after living here for several years went with her husband and children to Castledale, Utah. After living at the last named place until 1895, her husband's death occurring in that year, she and her children moved back to Parowan, which place she has made her home from that time to the present.

She was highly respected, and numbered her friends by the score, and was a mother of 10 children, 8 of whom survive her. She leaves in addition to her children 54 grandchildren. 114 great grand children, and 12 great great grandchildren. She was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints and clung to that faith constantly through all her many trials that she was forced to undergo in the early settlement of Utah.

The children left to mourn her departure are Rachel Applegate, Circleville, Utah, Louisa Mortenson, Parowan, Wm. Haddon, Uintah, John Haddon, Idaho, Matilda Hooper, Idaho, Arminta Lidley, Colton, Utah, Ellen Rose and Francis Haddon, Idaho.

Several of her children were at her bedside when the end came, and sincerely mourn the loss of a loving mother.

Funeral services were held in the tabernacle Saturday afternoon at 1 o'clock, the speakers being Morgan Richards, John Stevens, Bp. Adams, each of whom spoke in strong terms of the excellent character of the deceased, and encouraged the mourners to follow in the footsteps of her who has gone to a well earned rest. During the services a beautiful solo was rendered by Miss Ada McGregor, and the singing of the choir was appropriate to the occasion.
