After the death of her husband she has lived with her stepson, Peter Edsheidt, where she was loved, revered and cared for as a mother. With the family she came here to Henry six years ago, where she became a regular attendant, at St. Mary's church. She quietly peacefully passed into the other life on Saturday, July 3.

The funeral services, conducted by Rev. Fr. Gensler, were held from St. Mary's church at 8 o'clock a.m. on Tuesday, July 6. The interment was made in the cemetery at Hennepin.


Mrs. Elizabeth Edwards (nee Studyvin) and infant

Taken From the Henry Republican

March 4, 1880
In Hennepin, Feb. 19, Elizabeth Studyvin Edwards, 30, wife of Henry H. Edwards. The infant was buried with the mother.

The death of Mrs. Elizabeth (Studyvin), wife of Henry H. Edwards, together with her infant babe is one of the sad events, which clouds the community of which she was an esteemed member.  A writer in the Hennepin Record speaks of the event thusly: "Mrs. Edwards was born in Indiana in 1850; was married in 1868; leaves one child, a sweet little girl of 10 summers to comfort her bereaved compainion.  When we met on the morning of the 21st, to bury the deceased, the little baby boy, a week old, seemed to be dying; we waited in suspense, while the balances quivered with the destiny of this little immortelle; soon the little redeemed prisoner with such a short earth-life, was freed, and swelled the cherubic legions beyond.  The Marys and Marthas washed and shrouded the little form, and laid it gently in the casket, beside the cold body of the mother.  She was a kind mother and compainion, and sadly were her remains borne to the cemetery at Magnolia.
