(Taken from the Payson,Adams Co.Ill.,Times)

Mrs. Eliza Ann Noel was born in Wrightsville, Penn.,Oct 12, 1816,
and died at her home in Payson, Ill., Jan. 14,1898, aged 81 years, 3
months and 2 days. She came to Illinois in 1834. Married Wm. H.
Graham Sept. 14, 1837, and lived in Birmingham, Ill., untill 1850
when she moved to Payson, Adams County. Mr. Graham departing this
life in 1846 in Birmingham. By her first marriage she had four
children; one dying in infancy and three reaching manhood. Two are
still living, H. C. Graham, of Hannibal, Mo., and W.H. Graham of
Middletown, Mo.

On Jan. 31, 1853, She was married to Wm. Thompson, and was again
left a widow Aug. 24, 1880. By this union were born four children,
two dying in infancy and two daughters still living, Mrs. Dora Tipple
and Miss Esther Thompson. She was converted in early womanhood and
united with the M. E. church, remaining a faithful and consistent
Christian throughout life. She was a noble, unselfish and lovable
woman, at all times forgetting herself for other, and to know her
was to dearly love her. To those to whom she was so dear, a loss has
come that shall ever be felt and she will be held in fond and sweet
remembrance.. Her funeral services were conducted Sunday at the Fall
Creek M. E. church by Rev. C. R. Morrison. A very large number of
relatives and sympathizing friends attending the services. Her
remains were laid to rest in the church cemetery, where other loved
ones of the family sleep the peaceful sleep.

She is not dead, she's only sleeping, that sweet sleep of peace
and rest; and while we sorrow and are weeping, she is happy with God's
blest. To the friends the Times extends the heartfelt symapathy of
the community, in this their sad hour.
