W. M. Eades of Formosa has favored the Democrat with a clipping from a newspaper published at Vernal, Utah, giving an account of the death of his sister-in-law, Mrs. R. J. Eades, which, in part is as follows.
After suffering for ten days with blood poisoning caused from sugar diabetes, Mrs. R. J. Eades passed away early Sunday morning. She had always been a healthy woman until in 1910 when she was stricken with the measles which left her with a cough and other weaknesses.
Nancy Francis Crowl Eades was born May 10, 1856 in Coffee County, Tenn. She spent her childhood in that state and remembers well the closing years of the Civil war.
When she was fourteen years old her family moved to Van Buren County, Arkansas. It was here that she met and married R. J. Eades on January 16, 1876. They spent most of their life in that state.
In 1900 they became members of the L. D. S. church and in 1915 the family moved to Vernal residing here since.
Mrs. Eades was the mother of twelve children but nine have preceded her in death. She is survived by her husband and three children as follows; Jacob A. Eades of Hulbert, Okla.; Samuel R. Eades and Mrs. Albert Schaffer both of Monterey, Calif. She is also survived by fourteen grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.
