    At North Loup, Neb., on June 17, 1910, Mrs. Mary M. Sayre in the 63d year of her age.
    She was the daughter of the late Rev. Benjamin Clement and Lydia Ann Baker Clement. Mary Clement was born at Port Jefferson, Shelby Co., Ohio, August 11, 1847. About 1864 she accepted Christ as her Saviour and became a member of the Seventh-day Baptist Church at Welton, Iowa. On August 23, 1867, she was married to Moses Sayre at Dewitt, Iowa. Sister Sayre has been in very poor health for several years, and recently came with her husband to Nebraska in the hope that the change would do her good. She came back to the old home and friends to die, and to be laid at rest by the two little graves made at North Loup years ago. Besides her husband she leaves two sons and one daughter: Geo. O. Sayre of Milton, Wis., J. Albert Sayre of Cosmos, Okla., and Mrs. Jennie Hurley, wife of Charles Hurley of North Loup. She also leaves nine brothers and seven sisters and a great host of other relatives and friends.
    A good woman has gone to her reward. For years she has lived in the valley of the shadow of death, so that now it is with satisfaction that her family may say she is at rest. Body and mind and spirit at rest in God. 'And his disciples came, and took up the body, and buried it, and went and told Jesus.' G. B. S.

  2.   The North Loup Loyalist
    June 24, 1910.

    Mrs. Mary Clement Sayre was born in Shelby county, Ohio, August 11, 1847, and died at her home in this village Friday afternoon, June 17, 1910, aged nearly 63 years. When she was about 14 years of age she moved with her parents to Welton, Iowa, near which place she lived and married till with her husband made a home at Farina, Illinois. In 1877 she and her family came [to] this country and lived on a homestead on Davis Creek. Later they moved to the village and built that house where the writer lives. Here two of her boys, Walter and Forry died of typhoid fever. Later the family made a home at Nortonville and a few years later they moved to Milton, Wisconsin. When she found that she had at the best only a short time to live she and her husband came to their home - North Loup - that she might find last resting place in the city of the dead where her two boys and her father are resting. Her health failed her several years ago and it was not expected she would live long, and since she returned she had had several bad spells, but at the day of her death she seemed to be feeling better, and while her husband was at the well for a pail of water her spirit passed to that home from which it will never return.
    Funeral services were held from the S. D. B. church Sunday forenoon conducted by Rev. Geo. B. Shaw. She leaves to mourn her death a husband, two sons and a daughter besides a host of other relatives and friends. While living at Welton she was converted and became a member of the Seventh day Baptist church at that place. At the time of her death she was a member of the S. D. B. church at New Auburn, Wis., where she lived for a short time.
