Mrs. Cuthbert although having reached the advanced age of ninety years maintained her mental faculties to a remarkable degree. Her illness was of short duration, she having been about the house only a day or two previous to her death. She was a native of Scotland but this her adopted country had been for many years her home. She was a most beautiful character, loved by all who knew her. She leaves three daughters, two of them residing in Sioux Rapids, Mrs. Mosher and Mrs. Chas. Leighton and Mrs. Mary Noble, of Winden [sic] Minnesota, and one son, William of Baron, wisconsin. All were with their mother when she passed away. The funeral services were held Monday afternoon at the First Congregational church Rev Jones officiating. The body was laid to rest in the Lone Tree Cemetery beside her husband who died a few years ago. Their many friends sympathize with them in their sorrow.5
  • ObituaryText: Eliza Murray Agg[sic] was born in the parish of Fern, Forforshire, Scotland on the thirteenth day of June, 1817. She was married November 24, 1844 to Alexander Cuthbert. To this union were born six children--Mrs Isabell Leighton, William Cuthbert of Barron, Wis., Alexander Cuthbert, David Cuthbert, Mrs. Mary Noble, of Windom, Minn., and Mrs Eliza Mosher, all of whom survive her, with the exception of Alexander Cuthbert Jr., who died in 1898 and the son David who died in infancy in Scotland. In 1870 the two sons William and Alexander came to America and the family followed in 1871 and settled in LaCross county, Wisconsin. In 1889 they moved to Sioux Rapids and made their home near their daughter, Mrs. Leighton until 1896 when they came to Sioux Rapids to live with Mrs. Mosher. Mrs. Cuthbert and her husband celebrated their golden wedding in 1894 and six years later Mr. Cuthbert died. Grandma joined the Scotch Presbyterian church at the age of 17 and united with the Congregational church on coming to Sioux Rapids. Her life and character was most beautiful and prevaded by the incense of womanly tenderness, grace and purity. But she has been called hence; her eyelids grew heavy with the dreamings of eternity and she entered upon that sleep of immortality to rest in peace. Seldom is a home blessed with so sweet a spirit--never we believe with a sweeter one. Womanly, mother, filial as the demand might be, but always in disposition and religion consistently sweet and steadfast. Grand's death, which occurred last Saturday morning at 6 o'clock at the age of 89 years and 4 months, was a quiet falling asleep to have its awakening in a happier land. Funeral services were held at the congregational church on Monday, conducted by Rev. R T Jones and interment at Lone Tree Cemetery. after 13 October 1906 at Buena Vista County, IA, USA.3
  • Burial*: She was buried after 19 October 1906 at Sioux Rapids, Buena Vista County, IA, USAG.5,6
