A Newspaper clipping in the Bible read as follows:\

Departed this life on the 17th of May, 1851, at the residence of her mother, (Mrs. Martha Borum,) Sister Martha T. Cole, wife of Brother John G. Cole, in the 19th year of her age.

She embraced religion in the 17th year of her age, arid during health, continued to manifest her attachment to that Savior whom she loved, by a faithful attendance at God' s house, and an exemplary walk and conversation. She was a lady of but few words, her conversation was that as directed "yea, yea, nay, nay."

After her marriage, she became the mother of one child, (a daughter,) and was immediately attacked with consumption, which continued to waste away her frame, naturally delicate, until her mortal body was truly like a shadow. But the Lord's name be praised for sustaining grace, which he vouchedsafe unto her, until her latest breath. During her protracted illness, she was patient, and expressed perfect resignation to the will of the Lord. She regretted to leave her husband, and friends, and especially her delicate infant, but expressed herself like the apostle, "for me to die is gain," and her happy spirit felt a strong "desire to depart and be with Christ." And in the triumphs of faith she yielded up her spirit, unto God who gave it. She has left us without a cloud upon her moral sky, to join the saints in light. May the Lord watch over the little one for good and sustain the husband and relatives under this heavy affliction, that they may not sorrow as those who have no hope.

This Bible was in the possession of John Frame's only daughter, Mary Frame Kennedy, until her death. The oldest Kennedy daughter, Mable Kennedy Moore, has very generously given the Bible to Abigail Rice Hyde, oldest grand-daughter of Mary Frame Kennedy, and it is still in .her possession. We are most grateful to Mrs. Hyde for contributing these records to FAMILY FINDINGS. The front-piece of the Bible is missing:
