Martha A. Bracy, daughter of John C. and Mary E. Henthorn was born October 15, 1862, and died January 13, 1916, aged 53 years, 2 months and 28 days. She was married to A. S. Bracy August 29, 1883. To this union were born six children, namely: Walter B., Clarrissa O., Washington D., Addison D., Celesta O. and Dora L.
She obeyed the gospel when about 15 years of age. She has been fighting off that dreaded disease tuberculosis for about 25 years. And her last sickness of about 13 months has been a heroic struggle, but she had to surrender for the time to that grim monster- death. But being Christ's she went into the channel house of death, with full confidence and hope of His deliverance when He comes. She was a faithful and good christian wife, a loving mother. By her death Brother Bracy has lost a companion; the children a dear mother, the Church a good member and village a good neighbor. But what is our loss is her eternal gain. Let us all imitate her virtues and profit by her mistakes and make sure to meet her in that sweet bye and bye where God will wipe away all tears from all eyes.
Funeral was conducted at the home by the writer assisted by Elder F. W. Smith. After the services the body was conveyed to the new Woodsfield cemetery where it was nicely laid to rest on January 15 at 2:30 p.m. there to await the coming of the Lord. May God bless the grief-stricken family.
D. Wayne Harkins.
