-The angel of death appears at all times and places and even though expected, the blow is sudden, and often as severely felt long ways from where it falls as at the place.

FORBES in September, 1865, immediately after his return from service in the civil war. They came to Michigan in 1879, locating in Roscommon, where she was well known as a social leader and an active Christian worker, being one of the foremost in the organization of the M. E. church in that village in 1880. they came to Grayling in 1893, building the home in the east part of the village now owned by Charles A. INGERSON. Mrs. FORBES was in failing health and for a long time was unable to mingle in society, but her lovely personality won her friends everywhere. Mr. FORBES died in November, 1887, and in 1890 Mrs. FORBES moved to Oregon in the hope that climate would be better for her, and for a time it seemed to be. In 1891 she was married to Rev. Arthur NICHOLS, pastor of the M. E. church of Montavilla, Oregon, and with renewed strength took up the life work she had always loved, with the W. C. I. U. and the Woman's Relief Corps, which organizations gave her most tender and loving care in the months during her final struggle with the "white plague," to which she succumbed January 14, and her wasted body was cremated on the 16th inst., by her wish, and the ashes will be brought here and be buried in the grave of the husband of her youth. Appropriate service will be held, probably Wednesday, February 1, at the home of her sister, Mrs. Robert McELROY. (26 Jan 1905)
