Miss Marion Curtis was Married to Mr. Darst at the house of her father (Judge Curtis) Monday morning, and started soon after, for her future home. They went a few miles by private conveyance, then took a boat for Cincinnatti. Wednesday night she died very suddenly of congestion of the brain. She was brought back to her fathers house Saturday night, the boat arriving about 12 oclock. When the friends went to the landing to receive the corpse they found a sheep down to the water’s edge, watching very intently, the boat as it neared the shore. Did not move until the plank was thrown out, then walked to the side of it. When the coffin was placed in the wagon the lamb took its place under the wagon and went with them to the house; and followed the coffin into the house and would not leave until forced. It was a very singular circumstance, and strange that a sheep should be out at that time of night. It was afterward explained to Mr. Barron. It was Marian’s Pet Lamb.
(continued on page 102 bottom of page)
Sunday, previous to her marriage, after tea Marian took a plate of nice provision, called the Lamb and dog and went into the peach orchard hear the house, and sat down with a hand on the head of each. She then talked to them, told them she was going away, and they must be good to each other, and good to those they lived with & she stayed with them a long time, until she was called into the house. How did the Lamb know there was anyone in the boat he cared for? Why was he out at that time of night et,et, B.

Mr. Barron performed the marriage ceremony Monday morning, and attended the funeral the next Sunday.
