There are some lives so true, so self denying, so beneficent, that when they end it seems far more than an ordinary loss. Such a life ended Sunday morning, when MRS. EDENY SCOTT DUNLAP ceased to breathe...EDENY SCOTT was the daughter of REUBEN SCOTT, one of the first settlers of Rutland, in which town she was born July 19, 1813. Bereft of her mother at an early age, she became an inmate of the household of her sister, MRS. MIDDLETON, grandmother of ex-Mayor Middleton of this city. In 1834 she married WILLIAM DUNLAP and two years since those dearest to her gathered to celebrate her golden wedding. For many years she was a member of the Congregationalist Church on the Middle Road, transferring her allegiance to the Stone Street church in 1873, when she became a resident of this city. Besides a son and daughter who died after reaching maturity, she leaves two daughters: MRS. GEO. MOORE of Champion and MRS. R. M. FRANCIS of Colorado and our well known citizen Mr. H. P. DUNLAP.

It is with sorrow that we have to note the death of MINERVA L., wife of GEORGE ADAMS, who departed this life Monday night after a long and painful illness. Mrs. Adams was a daughter of AUSTIN R. SKINNER, a man who figured somewhat prominently in our city some fifty years ago. She was born in the First Ward on December 27, 1839 and lived in that ward up to the last year of her life when the family moved to their present place of residence on William Street...She leaves a husband, four sons, two sisters here and two sisters in Chicago, and a wide circle of friends and acquaintances to mourn her loss...
