Obits - NJ - Monmouth - Mrs. Sarah Roberts Leonard
Mrs. Sarah Roberts Leonard, widow of Richard A. Leonard, died on the
homestead farm near Leonardville last Friday, from cancer in the stomach.
She was about seventy years of age. Her funeral took place from her late
residence on Sunday afternoon and was very largely attended by the old representative
familes from all parts of Middletown, Shrewsbury, Holmdel and Raritan
townships. The Rev. J. H. Boyes, the Baptist minister of Atlantic Highlands,
conducted the funeral services, and the Rev. Wm. V. Wilson, of Port
Monmouth, added a graceful tribute to the memory of the deceased lady. Her
remains were interred in Fairview cemetery. She leaves three children, one of
whom is Miss Ella Leonard, of the Atlantic Highlands Independent. Besides
her children she leaves four step-children.
