    Sarah Maxson, widow of Clarke F. Langworthy, was born at Brookfield, N. Y., November 5, 1825, and died in Ashaway, R. I., April 19, 1916, at the ripe age of 90 years, 5 months, and 14 days.
    She was the daughter of Thomas and Abby Davis Coon. When twenty-one years old she came to Ashaway where she continued the remainder of her life. She was baptized and joined the First Hopkinton Seventh Day Baptist Church in 1856, of which she was a loyal and interested member until her death. July 5, 1847, she was married to Horace Maxson, who died in 1889.
    Of this union there were born three children, one of whom died in early infancy, the others being Clarence Maxson, of Porterdale, Ga., and Mrs. Annette Larkin, of Ashaway. In 1893 she was married to Clarke F. Langworthy, whom she survived several years.
    Mrs. Langworthy was a woman of noble life and character and will be missed by many loved ones and friends of long standing.
    Besides the son and daughter mentioned above, she leaves to mourn their loss a granddaughter, Miss Alice A. Larkin, a writer well and favorably known to Recorder and many other periodical readers; and two brothers, George C. Coon of Milton, and O. Laverne Coon of Albion, Wis. and two sisters, Mrs. Charlotte Maxson and Mrs. Caroline Stillman, who have lived with her for several years past and who tenderly cared for her in her last illness.
    Funeral services were conducted by her pastor, Rev. H. C. Van Horn, and she was tenderly laid to rest in the beautiful Oak Grove Cemetery. H. C. V. H.
