Mrs Isaac SIMCOX 1835-1910
After an illness of 4 months, Mrs Isaac SIMCOX, one of Amherst's grandest old ladies, passed away at her home Friday. Although the members of her family and immediate friends had known for some time that the end was not far off, it was nevertheless a great shock to the community.
Miriam A BELDEN was born in Castille, NY, June 18, 1835, and was aged 72 years and 12 days at time od death.
May 1, 1862, she was married to Isaac SIMCOX in Waupaca and to them, five children were born. Hiram B of Marinette, and William of Waupaca, survive her. Two sons and one daughter died in infancy. In 1867 Mr and Mrs SIMCOX moved to Amherst, where they have since resided.
Words fail to express the esteem in which she was held by those who knew her best. She was a sincere and devout member of the M. E. church and as long as health permitted taught a class in the Sunday school, her heart so completely wrapped up in the little church across the street. "Auntie" SIMCOX will long be remembered and mourned by those who loved and respected her.
Besides the two sons, she leaves an aged husband, who will now make his home with his son William of Waupaca and two sisters, Mrs. George STRICKLAND of Merrill and Mrs. Oren FOLGER of Galesburg, IL. The former was with her at the last.
Short services were held at the home early Sunday morning, Rev R W SMITH officiating, when she was taken by team to Waupaca where the services were concluded and she was laid to rest beside her children and parents. The pallbearers were F O ADAMS, E N WOLD, L A POMEROY, and P N PETERSON.
