Name of Deceased: Mrs. Mary Saffarrans
Newspaper: Boon's Lick Times (Fayette, Mo.) Saturday,
Date: March 25, 1848
Submitters Name: Kathy McDaniel

Obit: DIED--In this place, last Wednesday morning, in the 65th year of her age, after an illness of about 20 days, Mrs. Mary Saffarrans, wife of our venerable and much esteemed fellow-citizen, George Saffarrans, Esq.
For several years previous to her death, she was a pious and exemplary Christian; kind, affectionate and beloved, in every situation of life. She lived in the enjoyment of that comfort and consolation that ever springs from a life of obedience to God, and died in the blissful hope of Immortality and Eternal Life beyond the grave. She leaves behind her, in this world of trouble and sorrow, an aged husband and twelve children, with many friends, to mourn her loss. May the consolations of the christian hope be theirs; may they imitate the example she set them; may they live her life and die her death, that they may ultimately meet her in that far off land of peace and joy, where friends long parted meet, and meeting, ne'er part again.

Name of Deceased: Alzira V Scott
Newspaper: Boon's Lick Times (Fayette, Mo.) Saturday,
Date: January 9, 1847
Submitters Name: Kathy McDaniel

Obit: DIED--In this county, on the 30th ult., after an illness of several months, which was borne with patience and resignation to the divine will of Heaven, Miss Alzira V., daughter of William Scott, Esq.
She has faded forever away from our sight,
As a mist of the morn, or vision of night;
The tomb now encloses that being so dear,
Though nought but her memory lingers here.
How little we dreamed in the days gone by,
That so soon the light of her sparkling eye
Would be quench'd in gloom--that Death would call
The pride of our household, the dearest of all,
And leave us to mourn in the pride of youth,
For her smile of love, and her heart of truth,
To feel that her place may never-more
Be filled by another as 'twas of yore.
How sadly we watch'd when the death-like dew,
Came thick on her brow, and the fading hues
Passed away from her cheek and neck of snow,
Which lately burned with the fever's glow,--
As she folded her arms upon her breast,
And sunk to her long and her dreamless rest.
When she calmly slept in her peaceful shroud,
Came the friends of her youth, a sorrowing crowd,
Whose eyes were suffused with pitying tears
For the withered hopes of her happier years,
And the fountains of grief were stirred within,
That her spirit had fled from this world of sin.
As a wearied bird flies to its parents' nest,
To nestle in safety, contented and bless'd,
Her spirit so guileless and happy will wing
Its flight to the regions of joy and of Spring.
Though hushed is the voice that warbled the strain
We shall never, alas! on earth hear again,
In the Future that soft-gushing music shall rise
In seraphic tones from her home in the skies.
A lilly has fallen---a leaf from the tree,
A spirit has risen, pure, changeless and free:
A mortal has yielded the mantle once worn,
And why should we grieve that an angel is born.
Yet in vain may we strive to banish regret,
We cannot the prized and the loved one forget;
Every strain of sweet music that fails on the ear,
Will sadden our bosoms and bring back the tear.
The friends who so loved her while with them on earth,
Will remember her kindness, her beauty and worth,
And treasure her name and her memory up
As a bright sparkling drop in life's golden cup.
And when summer shall come with its long sunny hours,
Will deck her cold grave with the fairest of flowers,
Beauteous emblems which tell how the blooming decay,
Growing bright for a moment--then passing away!
Fayette, January 6th, 1847.
