New Jersey Obituaries - June 30, 1897 - Mrs. Sarah A. Francis
Mrs. Sarah A. Francis died at her home on White street last Thursday morning, aged seventy years. Her death was due to a complication of diseases and she had been sick for several months. For a few weeks previous to her death her health was very much improved and she was able to go about the house. A reaction set in last week and she became very weak. For 24 hours before she died she was in an almost comatose state.
Mrs. Francis was the widow of John J. Francis, who died about nine years ago. She had been a resident of Red Bank for 35 years, during which time she lived in the house where she died. She had been a member of the Methodist church since her girlhood and her funeral was held from the First Methodist church on Sunday afternoon. Rev. E. C. Hancock preached the funeral sermon, taking for his topic the story of "Dorcas, whose life was full of good works and alms-deeds which she did." The pall bearers were John S. Hubbard, William P. Corlies, William H. Wilson, Charles A. Rogers, James H. Sickles and William K. Warden. The burial was made in Evergreen cemetery at Rumson.
Mrs. Francis's estate consisted of her house and lot on White street. She left no will and the property will be divided between her two children, Dr. William E. Francis of New York and Mrs. George Baldwin, who lived with her mother.
