The following information extracted from the Grayling, Crawford Co., MI Newspaper Avalanche. NOTE: The date at the end of each extract indicates the date of the publication:
-DIED-At the residence of her son L. H. CHAMBERLAIN, in this village, April 18, Mrs. E. B. CHAMBERLIN, aged 70 years. Funeral service was held at the home Thursday afternoon, and the body taken to Bay City Friday morning, for burial by the side of her husband. Deceased was born in Ogdensburg, N. Y., March 12, 1835, and married in 1856, at St. Clair, Mich., to E. CHAMBERLAIN, then of that city, who died about seven years ago. Three children were born them, L. H. of this place, Mrs. Carrie TRUMPLER, of Bay City, and Mrs. L. C. DINGLE, of Marquette, all of whom were present at the last sad rites. Since the death of her husband she has called it home with Mrs. DINGLE, but her time has been so divided with them all that she was a familiar figure in either city. She came here about two weeks before her death, apparently suffering with only a slight cold, but pneumonia supervened with such severity that she was confined to her bed but four days in spite of loving care and the best of medical attention. She had been an active and consistent member of the Presbyterian church for nearly half a century. A devoted christian, a loving wife and mother and a constant friend has gone to her reward. (30 Apr 1905)
