Mrs. Polly Ann Woolfolk Passes Away In Her Ninety-Seventh Year - Eighty Years Member of Baptist Church - Mrs. Polly Ann Woolfolk was born in Christian county, Ky., Feb. 5, 1811; died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Wiley, in Henry county, Mo., Dec. 15, 1907. She was ninety-seven years old lacking one month and 20 days; was married to Charles T. Woolfolk in 1831, and moved to Boone County, Mo., in 1856. Her husband died in 1862. She was the mother of nine children - six girls and three boys; five of whom are still living; Mrs. Abe Wiley, Mrs. J. M. Avery of Clinton, W. W. Woolfolk of Oregon, Charles T. Woolfolk of Johnson county, Mo., and J. L. Woolfolk of Kansas City. Five generations of her immediate family were living at the time of her death. There are about eighty descendants of her family. Her energy and industry no doubt prolonged her life. She was a member of the Baptist church for over eighty years, and was the purest and noblest of women. The record of her long and useful life is written in words of truth and love upon the hearts of those who knew her best. She is gone, but the waves of her influence, like a beautiful stream, will flow on to make the world better and happier. She lived, she wrought nobly, the evening of life came, her mind was bright until the end. No disease preyed upon her body, she went quietly to sleep to await the Resurrection morn. The funeral services were at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Wiley, near Lewis. After which the remains were laid to rest in Hickory Grove cemetery.
