    In West Genesee, N. Y., Aug. 14th, 1880, of disease of the liver, Mrs. Fanny Crandall, wife of Albert B. Crandall, in the 67th year of her age. Her maiden name was Stillman, and she was born and brought up in the town of Brookfield, where, in her youth, she united with the Third Church of Brookfield. She was married in 1831, and in 1833 moved with her husband to the town of Genesee, Allegany county, where they began their home in a forest on Deer Creek, and where they have since resided.
    She became a member of the Third Genesee Church, which was organized after their settlement here, and was a member of the present West Genesee Curch at the time of her death. During her life, especially the latter part of it, she was actively interested in benevolent enterprises, and was one of the leading members of the Ladies' Sewing Society.
    She had been chastened by much affliction in the loss of the greater part of their large family of children. Three sons were given to their country's service in the time of the Rebellion, one of whom was killed in battle, and two died in Rebel prisons; and her cheerful surrender of these sons when they enlisted, and the fortitude with which she bore their loss, were somewhat remarkable.
    Her last sickness lasted about two months, during which she bore great suffering with much patience, and manifested a cheerful submission to the divine will. Her mind was clear and serene to the last. On the day of the funeral, a large number of friends from other neighborhoods, as well as those in the vicinity, met at the residence to show their respect and their sympathy with the bereaved husband and family; and on assembling at the church, where the services were held, there was a concourse of people much to great to get into the house. A discourse was delivered on the occasion by the writer, from Rev. 21: 4. C. A. B.
