    Mrs. James Maitland died at the home of her son George, in Sycamore, Wednesday, September 12, after an illness of ten days from cholera morbus.

    Sarah Renwick was born in Johnstown Parish, Scotland, April 16, 1822. At the age of 13 she came with her parents to Canada. On March 9, 1841, she was united in marriage to James Maitland, and with him came to DeKalb county in November, 1868. Mr. Maitland died May 7, 1875, and since that time she had resided in Sycamore.

    To Mr. and Mrs. Maitland were born fifteen children, eleven of whom survive them. The children are: Mrs. John Allen of Trenton, Canada; James Maitland, Sycamore; Mrs. Arthur Mead, Elgin; Walter, Robert, George, Sycamore; Herbert, Hitchcock, Dakota; Henry, Sycamore; William, Brighton, Canada; Thomas, Messervy, Iowa; and Mrs. Theodore Weitzel, Sycamore.

    Deceased was highly esteemed by her neighbors for many noble traits of character. Forty years ago she united with the Presbyterian church. She was one of seven sisters, and is the first of the number to be called by death.

    The funeral was from the Methodist church, Friday morning, at half past ten, the services being in charge of Rev. A. T. Horn. The interment was in the cemetery at Ohio Grove.
