    Heritage - Ambrosia Coon, daughter of DeWitt and Eliza Coon, was born in Brookfield, N. Y., April 4, 1852, and died in Milton, Wis, April 22, 1916.
    Of the five children in that family, there are left only her half-brother, Dr. Edwin Coon, De Ruyter, N. Y., and her half sister, Jurantha, Mrs. Estee Burch, Leonardsville, N. Y. When left to provide for herself and two-year-old daughter, she took up the occupation of nursing. Most of her life was passed at Brookfield until she was married, March 15, 1905, to Clarkson Heritage, and since then she has made her home in Milton.
    She was baptized when a girl and joined the Brookfield church.
    For the last eleven years she has been in the fellowship of the Milton Seventh Day Baptist Church. She was a regular attendant at the prayer meeting as long as health permitted and since then she has been a loyal member of the Sabbath-school Home Department. The Word of God and prayer were a great comfort and stay to her. She has always sought the association of those who were high-minded, pure and unselfish.
    Besides her husband, brother and sister, she leaves four grandchildren, the children of her only daughter by a former marriage, Mrs. Lucius Burdick, of Leonardsville. Since the death of this mother, five years ago, one of the children Relda, has been with her grandparents.
    During the fifteen months of illness she has suffered much but with great patience and unselfishness. She has always wanted to know what her duty was, that she might do it.
    A very simple service in accordance with her wish was held at the home Tuesday afternoon. Pastor Randolph's text was Revelation 5: 11-12. The eulogy was not for her but for the faith which was in her heart, for the Savior in whom she trusted. 'Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints.' L. C. R.
