Fallis, Martha

Submitted by Sheila Kell

Martha Fallis was born in Vevay, Switzerland county, Ind., Nov. 16, 1816. She was married to Henry H. Mix, Oct. 23, 1834. To them were born twelve children. Eight of whom now survive.

She resided in Switzerland county until 1858, when with her husband she moved to Jennings county where she lived until her death which occurred Jan 2nd, 1894. She united with the Universalist church at North Vernon, Ind., in 1870.

In her death her children have lost a kind and loving mother, the community a good citizen.  We are continually reminded that death is abroad in the world, laying its cold and relentless fingers upon those who are near and dear to us by nature, and claiming them for its own.
Life is always uncertain, and its brittle thread may be broken at any moment, and our hearts be bowed in grief when we are leas expecting it, by having taken from us those who we love, honor and respect. Our ranks are often broken by a worn and weary recruit dropping by the wayside, yet the vacant place is closed in the column, and we go marching on waiting only till the dread summons shall call us to tread the unbroken path.   T.B.R. - Minister
