SARAH  M. FITZGERRELL Dies in Richmond, Ind., after a Lingering Illness of Six Years 

News of the death of Mrs. Sarah M. FITZGERRELL, which occured at Richmond, Ind., 
at 4 o'clock Wednesday morning, was a shock to her family and relatives, not withstanding 
the fact that they expected her death at almost any moment. Mrs. FITZGERRELL has been 
afflicted for six years with an ailment that medical science could not relieve. 

She was born in Franklin county, Ill., July 22, 1840, therefore was more than 63 years old. 
She was the daughter of Thomas and Elizabeth WHITLOW, who were natives of Kentucky. 
After her marriage to J. J. FITZGERRELL, in July 1862, she came to this county and resided 
here until a year ago, when she went to live with her daughter in Richmond. She was the second 
wife of J. J. FITZGERRELL and to this union seven children were born, six of whom are living; 
they are, Robt. C., Marion, Ill.; Mary C. GOODNER, Nashville, Ill.; Daniel G., of this city; 
Euterpe CHANCE, Washington D. C.; Elnora R. WILLIAMS, Evansville, Ind.; and 
Catherine M. JESSUP, Richmond, Ind; Mrs. Sarah E. MITCHELL and Mrs. Elzina J. GEE, 
of this city are step-daughters of Mrs. FITZGERRELL. She was a faithful member of the 
Baptist church. 

The arrangements for the funeral will be given later. It is thought that the body will be 
brought here for burial March 4, 1903
