Mother Of Mrs. Larned Dies At Advanced Age

Mrs. E.T. Beardslee, mother of Mrs. M.D. Larned of this city, died at her home on Sashabaw Plains, October 2, at the advanced age of 90 years.

Mrs. Beardslee was a pioneer of Oakland county and for 68 years, her entire married life, she had resided on the farm which was taken from the government by Mr. Beardslee’s father almost a century ago.

By her strong Christian character and loving and sympathetic disposition, Mrs. Beardslee had endeared herself to a host of friends. She is said to have possessed rare mental ability and retained her faculties to the last.

Amid a wealth of flowers the body was buried in the Sashabaw Plains cemetery, the Rev. McKenzie of Flushing, a former pastor, officiating.
