Arthur Woman had 53 grandchildren

Harriett Elizabeth (Day) Jordan, daughter of Washington and Perlitha [Setters] Jordan was born in Carter County, Kentucky, April 13, 1844.  
She parted this life on March 9, 1926 at the home of her son, Albert Day in Arthur, Illinois at the age of 81 years, 10 months and 26 days.

She was one of a family of six children, two of whom survive her, Mr. Leander Setters of Jolton, Tenn. and Mrs. Sue Carrington of Marshall, Tenn. 
Her parents and three sisters and one brother preceded her in death a number of years ago.

At the tender age of twelve years she was united with the Christian Church and remained a devout Christian until her death.  At the age of 16 
she was united in marriage to Daniel Day of Kentucky, and to this union were born twelve children, Joseph, Net, Tresa, and John preceded her in death.  
The remaining children to mourn her departure are: Allen of Findlay, Illinois, Mrs. Eliza Williams of East St. Louis, Illinois, 
Mrs. Lydia Wylie of Ville Grove, Illinois, Albert, Charles, Mrs. Ollie Keeney, Mrs. Alice Moore, of Arthur, Illinois and James of Champaign, Illinois; 
53 grand children also survive her and many friends.

Farewell to our own dear mother whose voice is hushed in death

When Jesus called our mother home,
Death stopped her mortal breath
Angels bore her spirit beyond this world of woe,
She's gone to live with Jesus in rest for evermore.
