The following notes are from a news excerpt concerning her which appeared in the, December 25, 1905, Sun Telegram. "She received her early education in the State of Ohio, and her reminiscence of the first school she attended is quite amusing. She says the teacher was an old bachelor, who was not overburdened with 'intellectual gifts', and the 'school house' was an old two-story log house, and the upper story was used for the storage of fodder. On the third day of school, in the afternoon, a big rat, tumbled down out of the mow right in the midst of the scholars where were not slow to size up the situation, and all gave chase after Mr. Rat, which ended school for the day. (Her parents came to this state when) Rebecca was a mere child, but did not remain long on account of the wolves and Indians. The whole time no groceries could be obtained by the settlers around Economy nearer than Richmond. Mr. and Mrs. Pierce returned to the Buckeye State and remained for fourteen years before they returned to Indiana. George Pierce took up his trade as a miller when he came back to Wayne County. There were thirteen children in the Pierce family." (Rebecca was the eldest.)

EARLY HARDSHIPS

"In 1835, at the age of fifteen, Rebecca was united in marriage to Temple Edwards. The young couple began housekeeping with only a violin, one side of meat and a bag of clothes. Their first furniture was all made by Mr. Edwards, who was a cabinet maker and carpenter by trade. The beds were built in the sides of the wall. The table ware was made of pewter. The meat was hung on the rafters in the cabin. Mrs. Edwards spun the wool and made all the clothing for the family. She went to the field, gathered the flax, and prepared it for spinning. Despite the small beginning, Mr. and Mrs. Edwards accumulated enough in later years to amply reward them for their early hardships."

(The second stone south of the above one also bears the name of Temple Edwards with identical data.)
