James Darlington Mixson's Wife Dies

In early summer of 1882 James Darlington Mixson son Job Spurgeon was born.  His wife Lois had difficulty with the birth and never fully recovered, dying that fall.  It was a difficult time for James for not only was there the baby but four other children, the oldest being eight.  Fortunately, some of his aunts and his wife’s family helped with the children.
