The Chariton Leader, Chariton, Iowa
Thursday, March 16, 1905

MRS. FREDERICK MILTHORPE died at the family residence in Chariton on Wednesday morning, March 8, 1905, at 4:30 o'clock, after an illness of only ten days with pleuro-pneumonia. But few knew of her illness and her death caused great surprise and profound sorrow. Funeral services conducted by Rev. F.B. Palmer were held at the family residence on Braden Avenue this afternoon at two o'clock, after which interment took place in the Chariton Cemetery. The floral offerings were varied and beautiful, coming from sympathetic hearts.

SARAH ELIZABETH HAMPSHAW was born in Snaith, England, on July 5, 1831. She came to America with her only sister in 1852. She was married to FREDERICK MILTHORPE in Carlton, Ill., in 1856. He survives her. They moved to Iowa in 1867, and resided in Wayne County until March, 1903, when they moved to Chariton. They were the parents of eight children. One son, LEROY, died in infancy, and a daughter, ALICE, died on January 10, 1883. Those who are living are MRS. MARY MCKLVEEN; MRS. LAURA RETHERFORD and CLINT MILTHORPE of this city; MRS. BLANCHE MITCHELL of Cambria; MRS. FAY THOMAS of Humeston and MRS. BELLE SIRES of Derby. Her only other living relative is a sister, MRS. ANNA HARTLEY of Toulon, Ill., who arrived last evening. All were present at the last sad rites.

MRS. MILTHORPE had been a member of the Adventist Church for many years and her religious life was simple, devout and practical. She was quiet and unassuming in her manner, devoted to her family, and was honored and esteemed by all who knew her. She had a wide circle of loyal, true friends and the friendships had stood the test of years. The sorrowing relatives have the sincere sympathy of the community in their bereavement.
