DEATH OF MRS. GEO. HARTSHORNE MONDAY AFTERNOON
HAD BEEN A RESIDENT OF BOSWELL FOR THE PAST TWENTY-FIVE YEARS; WAS AGED SIXTY-FIVE YEARS
FUNERAL THURSDAY P.M.
Mrs. George Hartshorne, for the past twenty-five years a resident of Boswell, died at the homes of her sons-in-law and daughters, Mr. and Mrs. Walter Claycomb and Mr. and Mrs. Frank T. Custer, at 645 Highland avenue, (Moxham) Johnstown at 4:15 o'clock Monday afternoon, after an illness extending over the past several years. Mrs. Hartshorne's condition, however, did not become alarming until after a few months ago when the permanent decline in her health became evident. At times it was apparent that the medical aid might overcome the complication of disease which had already made inroads upon her physical vitality, but as time elapsed her condition gradually grew more critical and on Sunday, Mrs. Hartshorne lapsed into a state of semi-consciousness from which she never aroused, her death coming at the time stated in a most peaceful manner, and without any apparent pain as she slipped quietly across the span which separates this life from the Realms of Beyond.
Mrs. Hartshorne lived a quiet and unpretentious life--one unmoved and unaffected by the frivolities of this world, but throughout her earthly existence she was always sensitive and alert to every duty affiliated with upright living, and the commendable influences of life made her a faithful wife, a dutiful and loving mother and a kind and considerate neighbor and friend--one who will be sadly missed not only by the members of her family, but as well by her host of friends and acquaintances.
Mrs. Hannah (Pilkington) Hartshorne, a daughter of Thomas and Elizaabeth Pilkington, deceased, as born in Accrington, England 1867, being aged at the time 65 years, three months, and twenty four days. When a little child, about six -months old, the deceased came to this country with her family and located at Phillipsburg, where she grew into womanhood. In 1891 she was united in marriage with George Hartshoren and to the union seven children--two sons and five daughters, were born; six of whom, whit the husband and father, survive to mourn deeply the passing of their beloved mother. The surviving children are: Alice, wife of L.L. Sprowls; Ruth, wife of J.C. Oswalt, and Miss Audrey of Hartshorne, all of Boswell; Esther, wife of Frank T. Custer; Marguerite, wife of Walter Claycomb, and George Hartshorne, Jr., all residing at 645 Highland avenue, Johnstown. Mrs. Hartshorne is survived by the following grandchildren: Romaine, Lavonne, and Merwyn Lee Sprowls, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. LK. L. Sprowls, and Audrey, Elaine and Telford Custer, children of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Custer,.
