Miami Union (In Casstown Items)

August 23, 1873 

GREEN, LIDA - On Tuesday night last a sad death occurred near our village.  Lida, daughter of Mr. William Green, faded like the lovely flower, and was last Thursday consigned to the tomb.  Gifted with beauty, ability, and other rare graces, she was beloved by all, and the day that witnessed her burial was to have witnessed her marriage.  But in the shadow of the altar lay the tomb; and never before has such universal sympathy pervaded our community.  Truly, she will be missed:

"Gone with the wealth of love which dwelt,
   Heart-kept, with holy thoughts and high--
Gone, as the clouds of evening melt

   Beyond the dark and solemn sky."
