    Myrtilla A. Clarke, the daughter of Charles Potter and Roxana Hibbard Maxson, was born June 29, 1858, at Brookfield, N. Y., and died March 26, 1921, at the home of her eldest daughter, Mrs. Florence Camenga.
    September 12, 1872, she was married to Charles L. Clarke. To this union four children were born: Florence, the wife of Claude Camenga, of Brookfield; Clarence, who died when fourteen years of age; Enola, the wife of Silas Witter, who died several years ago; and Ruby, the wife of Clark Todd, of Brookfield. There are also eight grandchildren.
    In the year 1879 Mr. Clarke moved with his family to North Loup, Nebraska, where they made their home until 1891, when they moved further west to Boulder, Colo. They remained here for about two years and then returned to the old home community at Brookfield. About thirteen years ago Mrs. Clarke was bereft of her husband. Since then she made her home with her daughter Florence, where she has been tenderly cared for, especially during the last few months, when affliction came upon her. In all her affliction she has proved her faith in her Savior and has born with utmost patience whatever she was called upon to endure.
    March 13, 1875, she with her husband professed faith in Christ by baptism and in union with the Brookfield Seventh Day Baptist Church. While living at North Loup and at Boulder she united with these churches, later bringing her membership to the home church, where she remained in faithful communion. Farewell services were held at the home of the daughter Florence, March 28, conducted by her pastor, Rev. J. E. Hutchins. The body was laid to rest beside that of her husband in the Brookfield Rural Cemetery. J. E. H.
