THE ERIE RECORD, 16 February 1883
Maggie Bothwell Craven Died - At the residence of her brother-in-law, John Broadbent,

Mrs. Maggie Craven, wife of John Craven and daughter of James and Elizabeth Bothwell. Deceased was born in Galesburg, Knox county, Illinois, Sept. 16, 1863, and removed with her parents to Kansas when quite a child.

She was always faithful in her attendance at the Sabbath School and united with the M. E. Church at the age of eleven years, and continued to be a member up to the time of her marriage, when she removed from the neighborhood.

She was a devoted wife, an affectionate mother and a loving daughter and sister, and faithful to her Christian profession. Though the summons came suddenly "like a thief in the night," we hope and trust she was prepared for it, and is now at rest in Heaven.

The funeral services were conducted by the Rev. S. P. Cullison at Bethel Church on Sunday at 12 o'clock. The house was filled to overflowing and the remains were followed to their last resting place in Bethel cemetery by a large procession of sympathizing friends, which shows how highly she was esteemed.

She leaves a husband and two small children, besides a large circle of relatives and friends to mourn her death, yet we trust that their loss is her eternal gain. Age 19 years and 5 months.
