Note: Wellsboro Agitator of Mar 29, 1887 has: Mrs. S. M. Kyes At Tioga, Pa., on Thursday, March 17, 1887, Mrs. S. M. Kyes, in her 68th year of her age. Mrs. Kyes died after a lingering illness which she bore with Christian fortitude, fully trusting in the merits of Christ Jesus. She was born in Barrington, Yates county, NY, April 30, 1819, and was the loving daughter of Norman and Elizabeth Wells. She was married to William B. Kyes, August 14, 1841, and with him she spent 46 years faithfully discharging her duty as a devoted wife and mother. She leaves a husband and five children to mourn her loss--Mrs. G. W. Hazlett, of Tioga; Mrs. William Hazelett, of Chicago; Mrs. S. C. Kyes, of Chico, Cal.; Mrs. Anna Lownsberry, of Tioga, and Mrs. B. S. Baldwin, of Washington, D.C. She was a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church at Daggett’s Mills many years before moving to Tioga. Soon after this she, with her sister, Mrs. Lewis Daggett, and four daughters, united with the Presbyterian Church, of which she remained a faithful member until she was translated to the Church triumphant. Her last words were very comforting to those who were permitted to stand by her coach of pain. She wanted her companion to sing for her, generally of his own selection, and this would seem to soothe her into perfect tranquility, although passing through very severe pain of body. Her dying words to her husband and children were, Live so that when your earthly work is finished, we may be united again in the world beyond.
