The Commercial Review - Thursday, Sept. 11, 1907

    Winnie Anne Hawkins, daughter of Miles O. and Elizabeth Long, was born Oct. 4, 1862, and died Sept. 5, 1902, age 39 years, 11 months and 1 day.
   She was wed to William Hawkins April 14, 1883.  One daughter was born to this union and preceded her in the spirit land.
   She united with the Friends Church at Bluff Point at the age of 14 years, and was still a member and supporter of the same at her death.
  By her kindly words and actions she won many friends who remain to mourn her loss, but feel she has gained an eternal home at God's right hand.

    Death did me short warning give
        Therefore be careful how you live.
    My weeping friends I left behind,
        I had no time to speak my mind.

   Funeral was held at the residence Sunday at 2 p.m. conducted by Rev. H.B. Bosworth.  Interment at Antioch cemetery.   To those who so kindly assisted us in the sickness and dearth of our beloved wife and daughter we offer our sincere thanks.

William Hawkins
Elizabeth Long
