Pub. Times, January 17, 1924

        Sarah Jane Floyd was born in Kentucky, November 18, 1839; departed this life at the home of her daughter, Telia Webb, January 8;, 1924, aged 84 years, 1 month and 20 days.

        She was married to Casey Lasater in 1857 and to this union ten children were born, all preceding her in death except her daughter, Telia.

        Grandma is the last of the Floyds. 

        While dressing near the fire on Saturday morning, Jan. 5, her clothing accidentally caught fire and she was severely burned before the flames could be extinguished.  This sad accident evidently hastened her death.

.........., and she leaves to mourn their loss, one daughter, son-in-law, six grandchildren, two great grandchildren, several nieces and nephews and a host of relatives and friends.

        Grandma has been a member of the Albion church for a number of years.

        Funeral services were conducted by Rev. C. M. Prince at Albion and the body was laid to rest at that place.
