    On December 20, 1864, she was united in marriage to Pleasant E. Enix, their marriage taking place in Putnam county, Mo. With the exception of a fourteen year residence in Decatur county, Iowa, and three years in Wyoming, Mr. and Mrs. Enix have been residents of this county and for a number of years have resided in Albia.

    Two brothers and one sister also survive her. They are W. A. Rowles, Albia, Iowa, Harlan Rowles, Slater, Wyo., and Mrs. John Pierson, Albia, Iowa.

    About nine years while at Slater, Wyo., she met with an accident that resulted in the loss of a limb, necessitating the use of a crutch, and though disabled, she continued her duties in the home and when, when possible, to meet with other worshippers in the house of the Lord.

    Mrs. Enix has been a life-long christian and a member of the Methodist church from childhood, when during revival services held at the school house near the home of her parents she responded to the call of Christ, confessed her faith and united with the church.
