Lake Charles Echo, Friday, September 8, 1893, p. 3:

        Mrs. Medora Jessen, daughter of Capt. D. Goos, died in the city of New Orleans on the 4th inst. and was buried in the family graveyard at Goosport last Wednesday. A large concourse of friends followed the deceased lady to her last resting place, and endeavored by great sympathy to console the aged father and weeping brothers and sisters. The writer feels the death of Mrs. Jessen acutely. Years ago when he stood on the threshold of life, she was a dear and constant friend who in his absence from home filled the place of a sister, not has the wide separation of their different paths in life lessened the feelings of love and esteem she awakened in him then. A good daughter, affectionate sister, true wife, loving mother and faithful friend has gone to rest.
