    Sarah Calfernia Coon, daughter of Abby Greene and Alonzo A. Coon, was born in DeRuyter, Madison county, N. Y., on May 22, 1840, and died at Nile, N. Y., on May 10, 1925, at the age of eighty-five years.
    Her parents moved to Wisconsin when she was quite small, and after living at Milton, Milton Junction, and Utica for a few years, the family settled at Dakota, Wis., where she accepted Christ as her Savior and joined the church.
    She was married the following year to William Delos Crandall of Nile, N. Y. In 1860 she removed with him to his former home at Nile and joined that church, of which her husband was still a member.
    Two children were born to this couple: Alice Crandall Greene on May 20, 1859, and Wm. Henry Crandall on July 26, 1863. The latter died March 30, 1892. Her husband, Wm. Delos Crandall, died in August, 1920, at Nile, N. Y., and after his death she came to live with her daughter, Mrs. Clark Greene.
    "Aunt Cal." as she was lovingly called by many, was always interested in the work of the church, attending its appointments whenever possible to so. She was a member of the Sabbath school, the W. C. T. U., the Missionary and Ladies' Aid Societies, serving as president, secretary or treasurer as circumstances required. She was president of the Ladies' Aid for twelve consecutive years.
    She was the member of longest standing of the Friendship Seventh Day Baptist Church, having been a member for sixty-five years.
    She is survived by her daughter, Mrs. Clark Greene of Nile, N. Y., five grandchildren, and five great-grandchildren. L. G. O.
