Mrs. Betsey Harkness of Bethel Township, after a long and painful illness, passed away last Saturday at 3 o'clock p.m. Her funeral was held yesterday afternoon at the Lockwood church in Ovid Township.
Mrs. H. leaves a son and daughter Mrs. Isaac Butcher, and three grandchildren, besides many friends to mourn her loss. Mrs. H. was a pioneer, having lived on the farm where she died about 35 years. Her husband, Mr. Wm Harkness, died in defence of his country at Annapolis, Md, in 1863; he was a member of the Sixth Michigan Cavalry. Mrs. H. felt his loss very deeply, being left with two small children to care for.
