Last Friday morning, at the residence of her eldest son, David L., in Austin township-- aged 69 years. Two years ago last December we recorded the death of the husband, Welcome Chandler, at the age of 74. Mrs. Chandler has been in quite poor health ever since her husband's death. She has had eleven children, eight of home are still living, viz: David L., John, Mrs. Joshua Epler, George, Starling, William, Mrs. Jacob Epler and Mrs. H. C. Trowbridge. All were present at the funeral except the two Mrs. Eplers who are living in Ottertail county. Rev. E. R. Lathrop conducted the funeral services at the Cedar City school-house last Sunday at 3 o'clock. It is more than twenty-five years since Mr. and Mrs. Chandler came to Austin from Canada, and during all this time they have ever been recognized as among the most valued of our citizens.
