Departed this life, in Cass county, on the 30th of April, 1852, Mrs. MARTHA A. SPENCE, consort of Wm. C. Spence, and daughter of Martin Stidham, after a severe and painful illness of eleven days, the greater part of which time she was in a state of delirium.  She has left a husband and infant daughter 11 days old, father, mother, brothers, and sisters, with many friends, to lament one dearly beloved, taken in the bloom of life.  During her affliction, she distinctly sung the following lines:
“Sweet is the day of sacred rest,
No mortal cares shall seize my breast;
Oh! May my heart in tune be found,
Like David’s harp of solemn sound.”
