      Death of Mrs. Julia Edwards 
      Yesterday morning, the Herald made a short notice of the death of Mrs. Julia A. Edwards, at her home on East Bank Street, South side. Although for many years her health had been gradually failing, yet she was able to give attention to her home until about five weeks ago, when she was prostrated upon a bed of great suffering. During this period of her final sickness, every thing was done for her that attentive medical skills could accomplish, yet from the first, but little relief from pain was obtained, and up to the last she suffered greatly. Her death seemed to be caused by a complication of diseases.
      Mrs. Edwards was one of the older residents of Titusville, having spent nearly thirty-two years here, enjoying the association of a large circle of friends. She was born in Cambridge, Crawford County, Sept. 27, 1827, and received her education in the schools of her native town and from study in the Waterford Academy, Erie county. After finishing her education, she taught school. On Feb. 2, 1848, she married Arvin M. Edwards, whose former home in Cambridge was but a short distance from that of her own. Her father, Richard Gage, a native of Vermont, was one of the pioneer settlers of that section, coming there in 1818, and felling the trees when much of the surrounding country was covered by the primitive forest.
      In early life, Mrs. Edwards possessed a beautiful voice and evinced a rare degree of musical talent, and she was widely known for the fine tone of her singing. In August, 1868, with her husband and their young family, she came to Titusville, where she has been a constant and respected resident, residing twenty-eight years in the house where she died. Her husband passed away six years ago, since which time she lived in the constant companionship of her family. Her disposition was naturally cheerful and she looked hopefully on the bright side of life, thus making her companionship much sought after by all who knew her. When a young girl, she became a member of the Methodist church and continued to commune with that sect up to the last.
      Her family comprised eight children - one, a girl, dying in infancy - four sons and three daughters surviving her.  She leaves twenty-one grandchildren. She also leaves one aged brother, Orange Gage, who resides in Kansas. The funeral will be held at the late residence Wednesday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock.
