W. Collier, and ever after made that her home, but yearly visiting her three other daughters, Mrs. C. C. Mansfield, of Troy, O.; Mrs. G. Carpenter of Fair Haven, Mich., and Mrs. H. G. Beach of Bay City, Mich.  All those daughters were present at the funeral, which took place April 23.  Services were held at the residence of Mr. Collier by Rev. L. O. Lee, pastor of the Congregational Church, with which church the deceased united in 1865.  Mrs. Battay was a consistent Christian; an invalid for seven years she lived retired, and did her own Bible reading and praying.            Com.
