          Obituary - Elizabeth A. McCracken, daughter of Robert and Sarah McCracken, was born in Licking county, Ohio, September 3, 1836 and died in Randolph county, Ind., October 20, 1888, aged 52 years, 1 month and 17 days.
          She, with her parents, emigrated to Randolph county, Indiana, in the year 1837, and spent the most of her life in said county. At or near the age of twenty years, she joined the M. E. church, and remained a faithful member until the class became extinct. Then, for awhile, she held no church relation. But, about fifteen years ago, she united with United Brethren church, of which she lived a faithful member until death. She was united in holy wedlock, to Luther L. Moorman, March 28, 1875. The fruit of this union was one son Clyde Arthur), whom she leaves behind with a prayer that his life may be one of honor and usefulness. For ten years she was the subject of serious affliction, in all of which she was resigned and hopeful. She passed away without a struggle. Calmly she sleeps in believed assurance of a part in the first resurrection.
          Her mortal part was taken to Maxville, where appropriate funeral services were conducted by Rev. John W. Utaler. After which she was interred in Woodlawn cemetery to await the resurrection.
