Mrs. Leonard Place Of Morris Passes Away

Morris, Aug. 10---Mrs. Leonard Place, whose home was on the Norwich road near Morris, died Sunday morning, August 7, at 1 o'clock. For nearly 30 years Mrs. Place had suffered from mental malady which was a source of great discomfort to her and sorrow to her loved ones who
patiently ministered to her through the years. Mrs. Place was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Wilson Dilworth and was born in Morris, September 3, 1868. She was united in marriage with Leonard Place, September 3, 1886. They were married in Otego and there established their first home. Later Mr. Place took up the work of boiler making and their place of residence was several times changed. Some 25 years ago they purchased the farm on which they lived at her death.
The one son Leslie Dudlow who was born to this home, died in his early manhood, leaving a wife and three children. These children, Ina Myrtle, Ivan and Eunice, were to a large extent mothered by the deceased as best she could and they think of her as a mother. It should be said that their own mother, who is now Mrs. Summerville, has also been as a real daughter to her husband's people. She with the children and the bereft husband comprise those who bear the heavier sorrow in this separation.
The funeral was held from the house at 2 o'clock Tuesday. Rev. C. E. Vermilya, pastor of the Methodist church, with which she was affiliated was in charge, Rev. F. H. Leonard of the Universalist church assisting. The burial was in the Morris cemetery.

PS: As you will note, no where is her first name given. Perhaps it could be found on a census report. I found the term 'mental malady' interesting.
