     Died -- Mrs. GODFREY, of Blythe township, died at her home on the 5th inst. She was near 60 years of age and for almost ten years she was confined to her bed. The old neighbors speak only words of kindness when mentioning the old lady's name. When the writer first met Mrs. GODFREY, about two years ago, she was patient and resigned, expressed a hope in Christ, and viewed with a calmness her approaching dissolution. Two days before her death, being unable to speak, she signified to the writer her hope and trust in God. (There are two verses below that are mostly too faded to transcribe.)

Note:  Believe this may be Elizabeth A. GODFREY, wife of David GODFREY.  (Source:  1880 Arkansas Census, Marion Co., Blythe Twp)
