MRS. DABORAH HOADLEY
was born in 1810 in Columbiana Co., Ohio, died in Camden, Michigan.
Sept. 20, 1901, at the age of 91 years, 1 month and 18 days.
She was married to E. B. Hoadley at the age of 20
years. He preceded her though the golden gates nearly five years
ago. She leaves seven children besides grandchildren and other
relatives to mourn their loss. Sister Hoadley was long
sick, often suffering much pain, yet she was tenderly and lovingly
cared for by her daughters and grandson. She retained her
mental faculties to the last in a remarkable degree.
It may be said of her as of the patriarch of old, she died in a good
old age, full of days and full of years. She became a christian
at the age of 17 and has been a faithful christian all her life.
In the months of protracted sickness she would often be quoting hymns
and passages of scriptures learned in early life. Funeral
services were performed by Geo. L. Mount at the house of her daughter,
Mrs. Ellis, Sunday morning Sept. 27, 1901 and the remains taken to
Columbia, O. and laid beside the remains of her dear husband.
Thus another of the old settlers has gone.
