Fanny Moore

Obituary - Departed this life April 26, 1871, Mrs. Fanny Moore, wife of John Moore of Fremont, Indiana in the 59th year of age.  Fanny Moore was born Nov. 16th, 1811 in the State of Connecticut, Litchfield Co., Warren Township; moved to Ohio and was joined in marriage to John Moore December 26, 1833.
   They came to Indiana in 1846, where they have since remained in Steuben County.  Sister Moore was happily converted and united with the M.E. Church in Talmage, Porter Co., Ohio in which she has always sustained the relationship of a faithful member. 
   With her husband she has been on a visit to her former home to greet again her parents, who still survive her, but before going she had taken the precaution to distribute between her son and daughter some of the relics of the household, with the remark “it may be that I shall never return.”  She however returned in health.
   On Apr 26th like a glorious sunset shedding its rich luster with a silent adieu, her happy spirit bore the angel plume to the cylsian fields of glory. A bereaved husband, son and daughter, with many friends feel the affliction and loss of one whose memory will be cherished with endearing emotions.
