Contributed by Roselyn Wells

   Weltha B. Lawhead, wife of James Lawhead and daughter of William and Margaret Nelson, was born in Ashland county Ohio, February 28th, 1849, died at her residence in Jackson township, DeKalb county, Ind., April 27th, 1877.  Aged 28 years, 1 month and 29 days.
        Our sister, ah where is she now,
        But with the pious dead,
        No more on earth with us to live,
        Nor in our courts to tread.
        She ofttimes said to those around,
        Who twined about her heart,
        Weep not for me, my dearest friends,
        I've chose the better part.
        I think I see her pleasant face
        With its deathly smile so sweet,
        Clasped hand in hand with sisters dear,
        Whom she has gone to meet.
        We'll try to meet her in that clime,
        And of God's goodness tell,
        In endless age of space and time,
        So, sister fare you well.
