- "At the home of her son, C. R. Bisbey, two and one-half miles northeast of town, Sunday, May 5th, 1901 of ailments incident to old age, Sophia C. Bisbey died at the ripe old age of 86 years, 3 months and 5 days. Sophia C. Waterman was born near Rochester, NY, February 1st, 1815 and at the age of five removed with her mother to the state of Pennsylvania. Here in 1836 she was united in marriage to Joseph Bisbey, who died in 1863. Soon after her marriage she moved with her husband to Illinois and later to Minnesota. In 1891, she moved to Buena Vista County where until the time of her death she has made her home. Five children were born to her, one orf whom died in infancy and one in young womanhood. Three children survive her, Rev. N. R. Bisbey, of Webb; C.R. Bisbey at whose home she passed away and a daughter, Mrs. George McNeir, of Spring Valley, Minn. All of her surviving children were with her when she passed away. She accepted Christ and was baptized into the Baptist Church in 1840 and was a consistent Christian for sixty-one years. She died in perfect peace and faith in the Savior she had trusted for so many years. For the past two years she has been a great sufferer but through it all she retained her mind and bore the pain with Christian patience and fortitude. She talked of death as simply going home and her last intelligible words were "Jesus will help." The funeral services were held at the home. Rev. Lapham, Baptist minister at Ayrshire, officiating, after which all that was mortal of grandma Bisbey was laid to rest in the Garfield Cemetery."
