SARAH THARP HOWARD
IN MEMORY ----- Of Mrs. Sarah Tharp Howard. --- The sprit of this sainted mother winged its flight to the better world March 9th,1909, at the home of her son-in-law, Jas. P. Martin, near Gracey, after a lingering illness incident to old age. Her mind was active and memory good up to three weeks before her going away. How often she has told her children she was ready and waiting for the Lord to call, but wanted to be patient abiding His time.
The subject of this sketch was Miss Sarah Tharp Carter, born in Ohio county, Ky, Nov. 16, 1820, and was married to Calvin Graves Howard in Caldwell county Ky., Dec. 17, 1839, by Rev. John Barnett. Her husband had been dead 14 years the day she died. She was the mother of thirteen children, eight of whom are living viz: W.J., M.C., C.G. Howard and Mrs. Mariah L. Sivells, of Brownwood Texas; T.B. Howard, of r. No. 3 Princeton; Mrs. Ellen Hall and Mrs. J.P. Martin, of Gracey, Ky. The four latter children and three grand-daughters were with her in her last illness. She leaves twenty one grand-children, twenty great-grand-children and two great-great-grand-children. To these she has been a most loving and tender mother, caring for and training them with a self-sacrificing devotion characteristic of a true Christian mother whose memory they now cherish with the grateful satisfaction of having had one of the best mothers, and while they realize they have sustained a very great loss they would not call her back from the sweet rest and joy of her bright home in Heaven.
She was a devout and faithful Christian, true to her profession of faith in Christ and to the Baptist church, of which she was a member for nearly seventy years. She was regular in attendance at church until infirmities of old age prevented.
Dear children and grand-children let us follow the example this dear mother has left us. After the funeral services, conducted by Rev. R. Ramey, she was laid to rest by the side of her beloved husband and devoted daughter, Mrs. N.B. Butts, in the family burying ground near Lamasco, Lyon county, beneath the sweet flowers to await the resurrection morn. One Who Loved Her.
