Mary Louvena Williams Conover
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Jan. 9, 1842
Russell County
Kentucky, USA
Death: Jul. 27, 1903
Adair County
Kentucky, USA

Died: On July 27, 1903, at her home about four miles from Columbia, Mrs. Mary L. Conover. She was born January 9th, 1842 near Montpelier, Russell county. She was of a family of four brothers and four sisters, children of Preston and Prudence Williams. In 1858, the year of her conversion, she was married to Wm. Conover. To this union were born four sons and six daughters, all of whom are living.

She was for several years a member of the Christian church. Later she, with her husband, united with the Baptist Church at Zion, of which she was a member when she died. She was a faithful Christian, a devoted wife and mother, and a good neighbor.

For some time previous to her death she was speechless but her last expression was to tell of her happiness. The funeral was preached at the home by Rev. W.B. Cave. The remains were interred in the family burying ground near the home. Surely the Lord has blessed them. May His comfort be very great in the hearts of the bereaved father and children, brother and sisters.

-J.P.S.
