Elizabeth (Mollinger) Burnett

Mrs. Elizabeth Burnett
, widow of the late Seth Burnett, died at her home two miles northwest of Lockington, on Saturday evening, Dec. 26, 1891, aged 63 years.
She was the daughter of David And Susan Mollinger, and was born in Shelby county on the same farm where she died.
She had been a widow since 1877. She was the mother of five children, two of whom, Mrs. Ida Weymor and Willis Burnett, remain to mourn her loss.
The deceased took the grip about 10 days ago, and gradually sunk under the attack till death claimed her as his own. She had been a faithful member of the Methodist Church at Lockington since her girlhood, had lived at peace with God and man, and had nothing to do at the last, but to gather up her feet and depart in peace. Her last message to her daughter, who was also quite sick, was: "I am ready to go." So she closed her eyes on earth to open them in the sun-bright clime where death is not known.
