    At the home of her daughters in Delaware, Ohio, June 27, 1939, Mrs. B. Frank Titsworth, in the eighty-fourth year of her age.
    Genevra Zinn was the daughter of Otho Preston and Nancy Rogers Zinn. She was born July 21, 1855, in the community known as the South Fork of the Hewes River in Virginia - now Berea, Ritchie County, W. Va. The family was connected with church bearing the name of the community and afterwards known as the Pine Grove Church. Otho Preston Zinn was killed by accident May 31, 1857. Genevra was the ninth in a family of ten children, two of whom died in infancy. She was the last to survive. About 1865, her mother removed with her family to Farina, Ill. Here Genevra grew to womanhood. She attended Milton College and studied music at Whitewater, Wis. At Farina she married B. Frank Titsworth. From here the family removed to California, and later to Alfred, N. Y., where Mr. Titsworth died.
    Her family consists of two daughters, Bertha and Adelene of Delaware, Ohio, and a son Lewis Preston Titsworth of Brawley, Calif., whose family includes a wife, four sons, and a daughter.
    She early became a Christian and church member at Farina. At the time of her death she was a member of the Seventh Day Baptist Church of Riverside, Calif. She was a Christian woman devoted to her family and her church.
    Funeral services were held in Ramsey and Mohr Chapel in Delaware, and in the cemetery at Alfred, N. Y., where Mr. Titsworth is buried. "One generation passeth away and another generation cometh." G. B. S.
