Newport Hoosier State
Thursday, January 16, 1879
Center settlement has been visited by death and one of its most useful members taken from their hold, Aunt Sabrina Wishard, one of the most earnest workers of the church, was called home on the 2nd day of this month, in the 72nd year of her age. This is a loss that Center cannot replace. The deceased was always at her post in the good work, always ready to aid the unfortunate and erring, by good advice and counsel; never weary of well doing, she always was ready, and when the final summons came, she was willing to go. The bereaved family and relatives have the heartfelt and sympathy of the entire community for all who knew her.
Sabrina was married twice. The first was to Jera Haskell (1806 - 1849) in Wolcott, Lamoille Co., Vt. March 6, 1829. The second was to James L. Wishard (1794 - 1884) in Helt, Vermillion Co., IN June 6, 1849. She was the sister of Laura Temple Crane and Clarissa Temple Haskell.
