Mrs. Frederick Brockett

   Mrs. Harriett Brockett, widow of the late Frederick Brockett, died at her home near Coventryville, Tuesday morning, January 31, aged 92 years.  She was born in Guilford, August 28, 1835, and was the daughter of the late Deacon Asa and Sara Whitcomb Rhodes.  On October 26, 1853, she was united in marriage to Frederick Brockett.

   Nearly her whole life has been spent in this vicinity.  She was a faithful and devoted wife, mother and grandmother. Two daughters and a son died many years ago and her husband died twelve years ago at the age of 90 years.

   She will be greatly missed by her two grandchildren, Goldie and Ivan Richmond, who have cared for her through her last years.  She is also survived by another granddaughter, Mrs. Bert Stark of East Oxford.

   The body was taken to the Undertaking parlors of F. W. Seymour & Son, and the funeral will be held from the Baptist Church this afternoon at 2:00 o'clock, Rev. R. B. Stratton officiating.  Burial in Riverview Cemetery.
