Wife of John Gragg.
The funeral of Mrs. Mary Nelson Gragg, wife of John Gragg, of near Pleasantview, was held on Thursday of last week at the M.E. Church in that village, conducted by the pastor, C. W. Haney. The interment was at the Boling cemetery. The following obituary sketch was read at the services: Mary Nelson was born in Alleghany County, PA., July 19, 1833; came with her parents to Schuyler county in 1839; was married to John Gragg October 21, 1853, and died at her late home near Pleasantview March 30, 1910. Mrs. Gragg was an affectionate wife and mother, a kind neighbor, ever ready to assist others in sickness.In her youth she identified herself with the Methodist Church, and during the many weeks of suffering from sickness she was calm, with a perfect resignation to the will of God. Her husband and children, except one daughter, who lives in the far west, and her only sister were constantly at her bedside, and the patient mother fully appreciated the tenderness and care she received.On Wednesday, March 30, at 11 o'clock a.m., her spirit passed quietly away to the better land, where there is no sickness or death. She has left a husband, three sons - Geo. W., Fred and A.V.; two daughters, Mrs. Ada Ward of Bainbridge township and Mrs. Rose Luxenburger of Spokane, Wa., and thirteen grandchildren; also three brothers - Andrew H. of Pleasantview, Teel of Littleton and Augustus Nelson of Santa Barbara, CA., and one sister, Mrs. Eliza Cordell of Industry.
