Obituary from the Newark Daily Advocate, January 2, 1901:


Mrs. Jane Spencer dies at the age of eighty-seven--Burial at Adamville, Ohio

Word has been received in this city announcing the death at Johnstown this county of Mrs Jane Spencer relict of J C Spencer late of Adamsville at the residence of her son in law Mr C G Mears. Over two years ago she fell and broke her hip and she has been helpless ever since. More than a year ago she began to fail in mind and body but she clung to life with great tenacity and her longevity considering her condition was regarded as remarkable.

She was eighty-seven years of age and for more than sixty years had been a servant of the Master and a faithful member of the Baptist church. Her maiden name was Fitz and her last surviving brother the venerable William Fitz of Zanesville died a few weeks ago while on a visit to her bed side.

She leaves six children, Mrs. Elizabeth Amore of Coshocton, Mrs Catherine White of Webster City, Ia, Mrs C G Mears of Johnstown, Edward Spencer of the Dayton Times, Rev Bunyan Spencer of Alexandria and Mrs. Mason Saffle of Muskingum Co Mrs Rachel Fitz of Zanesville is a sister in law and C S Littick of Dresden and W O Littick of Zanesville are grandsons.

The funeral services were held at Alexandria at 2 o'clock Tuesday afternoon The remains were taken to Adamsville Wednesday for burial.
