Birth: Jan. 5, 1823
Westmoreland County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Feb. 12, 1908
Stark County
Illinois, USA

Lucinda (Porter) Gingrich, daughter of Daniel and Catherine Porter, was born in Westmoreland county, Pa., January 5, 1823. When she was only a few months old, her parents moved to the state of Ohio, where they resided until 1833, when the family again moved. This time they located at Decatur, Ill., where her father engaged in milling and mercantile businesses, at which he was very successful until his death.

In 1841, when she was 18 years of age, the family sold the Decatur property and moved to Stark county, locating in West Jersey township.
She was united in marriage to Daniel Gingrich August 18, 1850; to his union five children were born, two sons and three daughters: Alvorado A., Daniel P., Estella D., Ophelia C., and Viletta A. The sons survive her, but the daughters preceded her on the journey from whence none ever return.

On the morning of February 12, 1908, at the age of 85 years, 1 month and 7 days, she quiety passed away at the old homestead where she lived for nearly three score years, and was laid to rest in the family lot in the Stringtown cemetery, near the loved ones that had gone before.
