The Clarksburg Telegram., July 20, 1900, Page 3
Miss Sarah Owens at the advanced age of 89 died at the residence of Mrs. Caroline James on Pike Street, in this city on Tuesday morning.
She was the sister of the late Elisha Owens, and was the oldest native born citizen in this county.
She was well-known, and loved by all and endeared to all who knew her. In her death the community has lost a kind, generous, and noble Christian woman.
Thus one by one the old landmarks disappear. May she rest in peace, and the younger generation take inspiration to follow in her steps and pattern after her pure and noble life.
The funeral took place Wednesday afternoon. Rev. R. A. Richardson, officiated.
Her remains were interred at the Odd Fellows’ Cemetery.
