preceded her in death. Her ancestors had long been identified with this
country's progress and she was eligible to membership in the Daughters of
the American Revolution being a great great granddaughter of General BROOKS
who took part in that war. Her childhood was spent in Bryan where she was
united in marriage with Charles W. CLINGER July 18, 1889. To this union
were born 8 children, all of whom, with the father, survive to mourn the
loss of a kind and loving wife and mother. The children are: Mrs. Jessie

death. Early last spring the family moved to Vanlue where Death entered the
home and departed with the mother. The funeral was held in the M. E. church

Bryan; two brothers Mr. Charles FREEMAN of Ashland, KY, and Mr. Robert
FREEMAN of Owosso, Mich. Two brothers, Franklin of Sherman, Calif., and
Edward of Oregon, MO, were unable to attend owing to the suddenness of her
death. She was a kind and loving wife and mother, always cheerful even to
the end, and had a smile for everyone who came her way.
Dearest loved one, thou hast left us,
And thy loss we deeply feel,
But 'tis God that hath bereft us,
He can all our sorrow heal.
Yet again we hope to meet thee,
When the day of life has fled,
When in Heaven with joy we'll greet thee,
Where no farewell tears are shed.
