They were the parents of nine children, six of whom preceeded their mother to the spirit land. Three, James B. Fleming of Cozad, Neb., Mrs. Wesley Hanes and Frank Fleming of Williamsport, survive her to mourn the loss of a good mother. Mrs. Fleming was born and raised in a Christian home, and in early life was converted and united with the Methodist Episcopal Church, living a consistent Christian life up to the time of her death. After the removal to Illinois her life was identified with the pioneer hardships of the early settlements of that part of Illinois where her father settled, having moved there before the red man had abandoned the country. Mother Fleming was a kind companion and an affectionate mother, ever feeling it a pleasure to sacrifice her own comforts for the good of her family. The last year of her life was burdened with severe affliction, which she endured with Christian fotitude and resignation. Mrs. Calvin Epperson, mother-in-law of A.E.
