Agnes Elizabeth Arnold (Crowder)

Mrs. F. C. Arnold died last Friday night at her home in this city, after an illness of about three years duration. The funeral was held at the Christian Church at 2:30 Sunday afternoon, Rev. W. B. F. Robb officiating. Agnes Elizabeth Crowder was born at Springfield, Ill., April 6th, 1847, and was therefore, just two days past 74 years of age. She was married to Frank C. Arnold April 13th, 1865, and to union four children were born, one of whom died in infancy. Mrs. Fannie Norris Griffith, Mrs. Alice Bross and Arthur Arnold all live in this city. They came to Nebraska in 1882. Mrs. Arnold united with the Baptist Church in 1873 but she preferred the Christian Church here and asked to have Mr. Robb conduct the funeral service at the Christian Church. Besides her husband and three children above named, all of whom were present when the end came, she leaves a sister, Mrs. Mary A. Stanley, of Peru, Neb., and a brother, Wm. Crowder, also of Peru. There are eleven grandchildren and six great-grandchildren. Her niece, Miss Goldie Kennedy, of Lincoln, was here to attend the funeral service. The large attendance at the funeral and the many beautiful floral offerings showed something of the high esteem in which Mrs. Arnold and family are held in this community.
