Miss Ella Sanford, a young woman of exemplary life and character and the daughter of Mr. Jefferson Sanford, of Emerson, died September 8, 1917, after a short illness.

Miss Sanford was just budding into young womanhood, and had endeared herself to neighbors and to those with whom she has been associated by her bright and sunny disposition and cheery nature. She had dedicated her life to the service of a christian life and was giving promise of being serviseable and useful, and her taking off was a great sorrow to friends and relatives.

She met her end on earth, fully realizing that her life was ebbing away, with a submissiveness born on a consecrated life.

Her remains were laid to rest in Emerson cemetery where friends, schoolmates, neighbors and loved ones were present to pay a last tribute.
