Death of Mrs. William Briggs
-------------------------------------------
Paralytic Stroke Occurring
On November 27, Is Cause

Mrs. William Briggs, aged and respected resident, passed away, at 8:15 o'clock, Sunday evening, at her home, on the west side, following an illness of many months' duration. Suffering a severe paralytic stroke in May 1934, she had been an invalid since that time, a second stroke, on November 27, resulting in her death.
She was in her 76th year, observing her 56th wedding anniversary upon Christmas Eve, and was the wife and mother of one of the community's most widely known families.
Rearing 11 children and two grand daughters to maturity, hers was the first death to occur in the immediate family, the comparative record being a very unusual one.
Being of a home and family loving disposition to a degree almost extraordinary, she was markedly reserved and loved by all of those who had gained her acquaintance.
The following obituary tells much of her life's history:
Elizabeth James, wife of William Briggs, was the daughter of the late Strawder and Rebecca Bush James. Born at Austin, Concord township, Ross County, on August 2, 1860, she was 75 years, four months and 27 days of age, departing this life upon December 29, 1935.
Being one of a family of eight children, she spent her girlhood days in the Austin community. She attended the Austin schools, completing her education at Ohio Wesleyan University, at Delaware. A talented artist in piano, she was a member of the Clionian musical sorority of that institution.
On December 24, 1879, she was united in marriage with William Briggs, a son of another of those pioneer Concord township families. To this union were born 11 children, six sons and five daughters, all of whom survive with the husband.
The children are: Harry, of Circleville; Lillie, Strawder, Jane, wife of Percy May, Warren, Bryce, of Circleville; Cecil, Lena, wife of Floyd James, Annalee, wife of McKinley Stinson, of Cleveland; Dudley, and Elizabeth, wife of Willard Peterson, of Austin.
Of her immediate family she leaves one sister, Mrs. Nancy Mallow, of Frankfort. Two brothers, Milton and Charles James, and two sisters, Mrs. Bell Putnam and Mrs. Clara Pancake, preceded her in death but a few years, one brother and one sister passing in infancy. There are 17 grand children and one great grand daughter. Betsy and Wilma, daughters of Strawder Briggs, were reared by the deceased and her husband.
Christmas Eve would have been celebrated as their 56th wedding anniversary, an event which in more recent years had been looked to in eager anticipation.
Her demise being the first in the family during the entire 56 years, an incentive is felt for even deeper sorrow.
She was a member of the Methodist Episcopal church.
She was a loving wife and mother. Her religion was in her understanding and devoted love for her family, together with all of the Better Things. Motherly and neighborly hers was a useful life, one which can well be cherished by those who knew her.
-------------------------------------------------
Funeral services were conducted, at 2:00 o'clock, Tuesday afternoon, at the M.E. church. A large assemblage of relatives and friends paid their respects and there were many floral tributes.
Rev. H.E. Keifer, of Washington C.H., a former pastor of the church, read the funeral sermon, offering his personal praise for the deceased. Rev. F.E. Roberts, of Columbus, former local Church of Christ minister, sang beautifully three hymns accompanied at the piano by Mrs. Roberts. Rev. R.M. Morris, pastor of the church, offered a prayer.
The pallbearers were the six sons. Burial was made in the family lot in Concord cemetery, Frankfort. Arrangements were in charge of the Kirk Morticians.

She was buried on 31 December 1935 at Greenlawn Cemetery, Frankfort, Ross Co., OH, Findagrave #89645189.
