LIVED HER LONG - Mrs. Rachel Paulison, Pioneer of Adams County, Died Last Night at Home of Her Son - At Fort Wayne - Will be Brought Here for Burial - Lived Long Here
Thompson Niblick, who was called to Fort Wayne Wednesday evening by the serious illness of his sister, Mrs. Rachel Paulison, returned this morning, announcing her death, which occurred there Wednesday evening at 5 o'clock, a short time before his arrival. Mrs. Paulison was seventy-seven years of age, and was the widow of Jacob Paulison, one of the pioneer residents of this county and city. For some time, since the death of her husband, she has made her home with her son, Samuel Paulison, 1109 St. Marys avenue. She has been an invalid for a number of years, but quite recently contracted the grip, which, with rheumatism and the infirmities of old age, caused her death. She was born in Ohio March 15, 1832, and came to Indiana with her parents more than seventy years ago. With her husband she spent the greater part of her life in this city in what is now the C. J. Weaver home. Her husband was a pioneer blacksmith of Decatur.
Surviving relatives include the son, Samuel, a well known Nickel Plate brakeman, and six grandchildren. The husband and three children preceded her in death. There are three brothers, Thompson Niblick of Decatur; Robert Niblick, who is located in the west, and John Niblick of Illinois, and two sisters, Mrs. Israel Rempp of Willshire and Mrs. George Prentiss of Oklahoma City, Okla.
The body of Mrs. Paulison will be brought to this city for burial, the cortege arriving over the G. R. & I. at 1:11 o'clock Friday afternoon. The remains will be taken at once to the M. E. church, where the services will be held at 1 o'clock. The sermon will be delivered by the Rev. Claude Travis, pastor of the Wayne Street church of Fort Wayne.
