THE ERIE RECORD, 16 February 1883
Miss Caroline Hudson was born December 19th, 1862, died at her father's residence, 5 miles northwest of Erie, Neosho county, Kansas, on the 8th day of Feb., 1883, being twenty years, one month, and nineteen days of age.

Miss Hudson became conscious a short time before she died that her time was near at hand. She called her father and brothers and sisters to her bedside and shook hands with them and other friends and bid them farewell, and said, "don't cry for me. I am going where Laura is. I put my faith and trust in God, all is well," then passed away as if going into a quiet sleep.

She leaves a father, brothers and sisters to mourn the loss of a kind and affectionate daughter and sister. Mr. Hudson and family has the heart felt sympathy of the entire community, in this there greatest lost.

She was a young lady that was highly esteemed by all who knew her, both old and young. Her funeral discourse was preached by the undersigned who took for his text: "And he said unto her daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole, go in peace." - Mark ?, xxxiv.

A very large concourse of friends were in attendance and followed the remains to its last resting place in the Mound Cemetery. It was one of the largest funeral procession that has been in this vicinity for a number of years. This shows the great love and respect her friends bore her. W. H. R.
