A News Clipping
From Phebe CAMPBELL
Undated, but after June
Rebecca Lugg, died at her home in Nelson on Saturday,
the 16th instant, aged 54 years. Mrs. Lugg had been an
invalid for some time, but her death was a shock to her
relatives and friends, who had supposed that she was
improving. Acute Bright's disease was the immediate cause of
her death. She leaves four children to mourn her loss---C.
B. Lugg, Mrs.
Alta [sic] Evans,
Oscar Cole, and Mrs.
Jesse Howe; also a sister Mrs.
Dolly Campbell, and one brother, Jerome Bottom,
besides numerous relatives and friends. The funeral was held
on Monday in the Presbyterian church, she having long been a
member of that society. Rev. Mr. Armstrong preached an
excellent sermon. Beautiful flowers---roses, carnations and
similax covered the casket as they laid her remains beside
those of her husband, who died five years ago. Friends were
present from Bradford, Wellsboro, Elkland, Corning and
