Answers Final Summons Marking the Passing of an Eminent Family – Reaper’s Harvest.

Mrs. Louisa Corwin Burrows, the last surviving daughter of Governor Thomas Corwin, passed away at the home of her nephew George Cropper, in Lebanon, Monday evening. She had been in failing health for some months, suffering from the effects of a fall at Atlantic City last summer.

Funeral services will be held from the late residence Thursday afternoon at two o’clock in charge of Rev Arthur Cooper, of the East Baptist church.

She had been in failing health for several months past and indeed for years had not been in the enjoyment of perfect health. She had attained the age of seventy five years. She was born at Lebanon, Ohio, and was the fourth child and third daughter of her parents and was the last survivor of her father’s family.

Previous to her marriage to the Rev. E. B. Burrows, who had been the pastor of the Congregational church at Lebanon and which occurred in the year 1875. She had passed the whole of her life in Lebanon with the exception of two or three years when the family resided in Washington during Governor Corwin’s incumbency of the Treasury Department. Her education was obtained at the Lebanon Academy, a Seminary in Washington and a select school for young ladies in Cincinnati. After her marriage her husband held pastoral charges in Webster Grove, Mo., Mt. Vernon, Ohio and in the states of New York and New Hampshire. After the death of Mr. Burrows in 1902 she made her home at Cincinnati and afterwards at Lebanon with her nephew, Mr. George W. Cropper.

In her early girlhood she became a communicant of the M. E. Baptist church of Lebanon and throughout her whole subsequent life was an active and devout Christian.

In the relations of daughter, sister and wife she was exemplary in the highest degree and was a loyal and steadfast friend to all to whom she was bound by the ties of friendship. Her memory will be tenderly cherished by all such and especially by the friends of her youth, a few of whom still remain.

Mrs. Burrows was a woman of much intelligence and of wide reading specially gifted with the faculty of fluent and entertaining conversation. She possessed a remarkable memory of places she had visited and interesting events which had come within her observation as well as of notable persons with whom she had associated. Her death will be deeply regretted by all who have enjoyed the pleasure of her acquaintance.

Samuel Burrows

DIED. – On the 3d day of April 1875 at the residence of his son-in-law, Samuel French, Esq., in Warren County, Ohio, Mr. Samuel Burrows, in the 71st year of his age.

Mr. Burrows lived in Lebanon and vicinity for the last 44 years, and during the last 11 months, in the home of his daughter, Mrs. French, where he died. He was a consistent member of the M. E. Church for almost 45 years. He was a kind and devoted husband, a fond and affectionate father, and his death left lonely the household which his presence had served to cheer.

Our dear father has gone to join the blood-washed throng, where no sickness nor sorrow is, for there Jesus has wiped all tears away. It was on a beautiful Sabbath afternoon his children and friends laid him in the cold grave with tears of grief. Yet their faith is, that he is no there, but gone to the enjoyment of the eternal Sabbath that remains for the blest.
