    Sophia Williams Atwood was born at Alfred, N. Y., January 20, 1834, and passed away in Albion, Wis., February 9, 1920.
    She was the eighth child of Nathan Cheesebro and Huldah Palmiter Williams. At about the age of fifteen she united with the First Alfred Seventh Day Baptist Church and upon removal to Albion, she united with the church of that place, where she worked with much pleasure and profit. She was a devout Bible student, committing many whole chapters to memory, and this was a great comfort to her in her wakeful hours in declining years.
    She was united in marriage August 21, 1854, to Freemont Atwood, and to this union were born seven children: Byron L.; Nathan W.; Charlie; Carl C.; Henry H.; Allen F. and Frances. Her husband and four children preceded her in death. In her early years she spent some time in Alfred Academy. She was loved by all who knew her, so patient, so cheerful, always so winning in counsel, in kindly words and manner. Thus she lived and thus she died, a noble character gone to her reward.
    She is survived by three loving, devoted children: Byron, Allen and Frances, now Mrs. Clifford Crane, of Boulder, Colo., two grandchildren, and three great-grandchildren; one sister, Mrs. R. C. Green, and one brother, C. M. Williams, both of Albion.
    Funeral services were conducted by Pastor Charles Sayre at the home, where she had spent her entire married life, and burial was made in Evergreen Cemetery. C. S. S.
