Mary A. Moss was born in Jersey City, N.J., March 15, 1837, and after a brief illness of three days departed this life at the home of her daughter in Lancaster, Ohio, March 13, 1917. Age 79 years, 11 months and 28 days.

When quite young her parents moved to Ohio and located in Ashville, Pickaway county. On May 12, 1855, she was married to Samuel F. Moss of Carroll, Fairfield county, Ohio, and has resided in this county ever since.

She leaves to mourn her loss two sons, George W. Moss and Delt Moss of Columbus, O., and four daughters Mrs. Frank P. Miller and Mrs. Jennie Goodwin of this city, and Mrs. Henry Miller and Mrs. N.B. Fisher of Columbus, Ohio, seventeen grandchildren, twenty-one great grandchildren and a host of relatives and friends.

Her husband and six children having preceded her to the spirit world. Early in life she accepted Jesus as her personal Saviour and remained faithful to the end. She was a woman of integrity and high character, though at all times quiet and unassuming in manner, kind and genial with all with whom she came in contact, and at all times possessed in a large degree, the confidence and esteem of her neighbors and friends. As a freind she was loyal and true, and it was her delight to brighten the pathway of the life with a helpful hand, a cheerful smile, and a kind word.

Her vacant chair in the home reminds us that she has gone from among us; her pleasant and sweet voice is hushed forever; she is sleeping that peaceful, quiet sleep that comes to the faithful, just and true.

The places that knew her once, now know her no more forever, but her life, her character, her deeds and noble associations will live to cherish and make more grand and noble the lives and character of those with whom she come in contact. She will live in he hearts and minds of those who loved her best. She did not fear to meet the great hereafter.
Mrs. Jennie Goodwin, Daughter
