Dearest daughter thou art sleeping In the cold and quiet tomb, And our souls are sad with weeping, And our hearts are filled with gloom. We shall miss thee, daughter, often, As we count our number o'er; For a loved one whom we cherished We shall meet on earth no more. [Western Reserve Chronicle, (Warren, OH.)

From Greene, Editor Chronicle:---I take my pen to resume the sad theme upon which I have so often dwelt for the last few months, two more of our citizens having passed away since I last wrote.
Also, Clifford, son of Mr. and Mrs. Hillman, died March 23d, 1869, aged 17 years. He was a promising youth, and a bright future seemed opening before him. Although he had been a resident of Greene only about one year, he had endeared himself to his young associates, who will long cherish his memory with deep kindness and affection. The blow falls heavily on the parents, he being their only son. He leaves parents and one sister, with other relatives, to mourn his loss. Though comparatively strangers, we would assure them that they share the deepest and kindest sympathies of their friends and neighbors. Funeral services conducted at the Disciple Church, by Rev. E. A. Wakefield. D. R. B. March 26. [Western Reserve Chronicle, (Warren, OH.) Wednesday, April 7, 1869 - Sub. by Kathy McDaniel]
Elizabeth Cleveland Hoffman
DEATHS. --In Warren, November, 6, 1869, of Cararrhal Consumption, Mrs. Elizabeth Cleveland Hoffman, aged 53 years, wife of Hon. B. F. Hoffman.
The deceased had been in a declining state of health for the past two years, although there were intervals of seeming partial recovery, when her friends hoped to see her again exempt from the wasting disease, which had fastened upon her system.
Temporary sojourns during the past two years at the sea side, and on the mountains, with the hope that a change of air might prove remedial, were tried, but resulted in no permanent relief. Mrs. Hoffman had been a resident of Warren for thirty-four years, and was noted for her activity in aiding to organize and cherish benevolent enterprises for the alleviation of the poor in our midst. Many who have been recipients of needed aid and gratefully received gifts from her hand, will mourn her death, as one in whom they had a warm and sympathizing friend, ever ready to help liberally, in proportion to her means. Toward the bereaved husband and father of a family all a few short years since prominent in the social life and activities of our town, but whom, wife, son, and daughter, all are now gone, sincere condolence will ever go out from the sympathizing hearts of the people of Warren.

We mourn the sunshine of his smile, The tendrils of his love; Oh, was he loved too well the while, E're he was called above?

Clara Charlotte Howe
DEATHS. --In Bloomfield, Trumbull Co., of Pulmonary Consumption, Clara Charlotte Howe, youngest daughter of Dr. Geo. W. Howe, aged 21 years.
From infancy the subject of this sketch possessed a delicate physical organization, with an inherited tendency to that insidious disease, which has thus wanted another precious life. Chilled by death's untimely fr??? she faded and perished even while we gazed in helpless grief, but the fragrance of that brief life remains--the lingering memories of a noble christian womanhood.
Four years ago, she lay for months on the verge of eternal things. She "brushed the dews from Jordans banks;" but the invigorating breezes of Lake Superior, and above all, a kind Providence restored her to comparative health. At that time, she gave back her life, in a complete consecration to her Savior, and continued to live a life "hid with Christ in God." Till the Master's voice summoned her from labor and suffering to rest and victory, and joyous greetings on the other shore. F. R.
