Sarah Emeline Richardson Marsh - Times - October 18, 1928 - Sarah Emeline Richardson Marsh, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Isaac Richardson, was born near McLeansboro, Ill., March 17, 1856. She was converted at the age of 16 years, being one of the first to profess faith in Christ and united with the Union Missionary Baptist Church after it was organized and the house of worship erected. At the time of her death, she was the eldest living member of the church she loved and had lived in from her girlhood days. She lived to see the first building fill its mission and a second one come and go, and the third house erected on the spot which was sacred to her memory. On September 1, 1880, she was united in marriage to M. T. Marsh of Hamilton County, Illinois, Rev. C. Y. Allen performing the ceremony. To this union, five children were born, Mrs. Lora Mathis of McLeansboro; F. M. Marsh of Chicago; W. Il and R. F. Marsh of Alamosa, Colorado; and Mrs. Anna Kornmeyer of LaVeta, Colorado, all of whom are living. The great pleasure of life to her was the privilege of living for others. She always found time and a way to minister, not only to her own but to all those who were near her. She was a great Bible student and the burden of her heart and prayer of her life was that she might live in such a way that her own family and others who knew her might follow in the Christian service. She moved from Hamilton County with her husband to La Veta, Colorado in 1915, where they have made their home since that time. Last fall, Sister Marsh contracted typhoid fever, from the effect of which she never recovered, and in April of this year, she suffered an attack of influenza and pneumonia.
