April 25, 1912
GREEN, ELIZABETH - Pleasant Hill--More than three quarters of a century ago on April 18, 1835, there was born to the home of Joseph R. and Barbara Coppock, a daughter to whom was given the name Elizabeth. She was the second of four children, two sisters and one brother, all of whom have preceded her to the heavenly home. Her childhood was that common to those early pioneer days, and to the day of her death she made her home in Miami county. On September 19, 1853, she was united in marriage with Peleg Cox. To this union was given three children--Curtis and John, and one daughter, Mrs. Clara Whitmer. The eldest son, Curtis, was the first to leave in death, on the twenty-third of November 1871, and two days later he was joined by his father. Mrs. Cox and her husband united with the Christian church at Pleasant Hill many years ago and remained faithful to its covenant, but for the past few years sickness has detained her from its services. On the third of September 1874, she was united in marriage to Alfred Green, and to this union was given one daughter, Mrs. Dora Smalley. Since her husband's death, she has made her home with her two daughters. For a long time she has been an invalid and patiently and sweetly has seen the infirmities of age creeping upon her. The summons of death came on the nineteenth of April 1912, one day after her seventy-seventh birthday. She leaves two daughters, one son, four grandchildren, and a host of relatives and friends here, to join the still larger band of loved ones in the beautiful home of the soul. The funeral services were held in the Pleasant Hill Christian church on Sunday afternoon, by Rev. Alva M. Kerr. Interment in the local cemetery.
