Monday marked the passing of another one of Haddam's older residents, when Mrs. Elizabeth BRANT, passed away at the home of her daughter,
Mrs. Chas. HUSSLEMAN at Clifton.

Funeral services were conducted Wednesday morning at ten o'clock at the Turner Funeral Parlor in Clifton and short services and interment was made in the Haddam Cemetery.

The story of her life: Elizabeth SIGRIST, daughter of Jacob and Verena SIGRIST, was born in Green Co, WI, Aug 24, 1857 and died at the home of her daughter in Clifton, KS, Aug 3, 1842 at the age of 84
years , 11 months and 10 days.

She was one of a family of eleven children, all of which have preceded her in death with the exception of two sisters, Mrs. Nettie FAIRBANKS of Chicago, IL, and Mrs. Rose KLINKHARDT of Stockton, NE and one brother John SIGRIST of Pasadena, CA.

When quite a young girl she moved with the family to Mason City, IL where she met and married Thomas J. BRANT, who preceded her in death six years ago last April.

To this union three children were born, two daughters, Mrs. Rena REA of Haddam, KS and Mrs. Susie HUSSELMAN of Clifton, KS and one son, George Fredrick, who preceded her in death 15 years ago.

Nine grand-children and six great grand-children and a host of other relatives and friends are left to mourn her passing.

When quite a young girl she was baptized in the German Lutheran church and lived the Christian life to the end. She was a pioneer mother and blazer of trails for others. In her death we mourn the passing of a
pioneer. On her casket and at her grave we lay our wreaths of respect and honor as an humble acknowledgement of the debt of gratitude we owe
her for the blessings were enjoyed because she lived and sacrificed.
