Tippecanoe City Herald

October 27, 1870

CUSHWA, MRS. SOPHIA - Died, on the morning of the 19th inst., at the residence of her son in West Charleston, whither she had gone on a short visit, Mrs. Sophia Cushwa, wife of Benjamin Cushwa, aged 62 years, 2 months, and 14 days. Her disease was sinking chills and palsy, and she died after an illness of less than twenty-four hours. Mrs. Cushwa was a most worthy lady, and was highly esteemed by all her numerous acquaintances. She was a member of the Reformed Church for upwards of forty years. She leaves many relatives and friends, among whom are her devoted husband, children, and grandchildren, to mourn their loss, but which is without doubt her eternal gain. Her funeral took place on the 20th inst., at Bethel Church.

"So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom."
