April 8, 1833, and resided in Canfield about three years, and then with her husband and two small children came to Hartsgrove when it was a wilderness and when the wolves prowled through the forest and made the nights hideous with their howlings; and shared the hardships and privations incident to pioneer life. About seven years ago she had a shock of paralysis which caused her to become nearly helpless and had to be drawn about in her chair, and on the 16th of Oct. last she had another very hard shock which made her perfectly helpless and remained so while she lived. She was a member of the M. E. Church about 53 years and at the last she said her trust was in her Saviour. She leaves an aged companion and five children to mourn her departure.
