    Elizabeth L. Williams was born October 15, 1838, at Watson, Lewis County, N. Y., and died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. George Combs, on their farm west of North Loup, September, 1928, almost 90 years of age.
    She was the second child in a family of eight born to Deacon Daniel P. Williams and Lucinda Scriven Williams and was in lineal descent to Roger Williams, founder of Rhode Island. She was a sister of the late Deacon Jacob Williams, who spent a large part of his life in this community, and of Henry Williams, of Boulder, Colo., the only living member of the family.
    Her early life was spent in New York, where she did some teaching and where on April 2, 1859, she was married to William N. Greene, who a few years later served his country in the Civil War. Five children were born to Mr. and Mrs. Greene, only one of whom grew to maturity, Ella, the wife of George Combs of this vicinity. In the spring of 1880 they moved to Nebraska to seek a new home, but within a very few weeks her husband died and left her alone in this new home to care for her only daughter.
    For many years they lived in town in the house now owned by Robert Peterson, and after the marriage of the daughter she moved with them, twenty-four years ago, to the farm where she died.
    Mrs. Greene was baptized at the age of twelve years and joined the Watson (N. Y.) Seventh Day Baptist Church. When she moved to Nebraska she and her husband joined the North Loup Church, where she has since held membership. She was a good Christian woman and did her work faithfully and well. She was somewhat retiring and quiet, but was loved by all who knew her. She was of even temperament, which made it easy always to know just what her attitude towards life's questions would be.
    Mrs. Greene passed quietly away last Thursday morning, after a brief illness, and memorial services were held at the home Sabbath afternoon, September 15. L. O. Greene, in the absence of the pastor, had charge of the services. The bearers were relatives. There were many beautiful floral offerings, which indicate the esteem in which 'Aunt Elizabeth' was held. Burial was at the Hillside Cemetery. L. O. G.
