A resident of Andrew county, 62 years and a member of the family that originally settled and named Empire Prairie, Mrs. Harriett Bonham died last week aged 86 years. She was the widow of Robert Bonham. According to the Savannah Reporter Robert Bonham went to the war for the Union cause in 1862, leaving his brave young wife and three little daughters. Though the young soldier returned safe at the end of the war, all three of his little daughters died within a year from the time he left home.
