Obituary in the Greenfield Gazette and Courier November 22, 1902

Death of a Friend of President Franklin Pierce
Mrs. John Hoar, SS, died at her home on School street Sunday morning. Mrs. Hoar was a native of Hillsboro, N. H., and in her youth was a schoolmate and personal friend of the late Franklin Pierce, after ward president of the United States. She married John Hoar and came to Greenfield 65 years ago and had lived in the same house since coming here. Mrs. Hoar was one of the 11 women who founded the First Baptist church and was for 12 years president of the society. In those the services were held in what is now the firemen's rooms, and later in the Hollister hall. Mr. and Mrs. Hoar had three children, Nelson P., who was killed at the fire in the steam mill on Hope street in 1861 while acting as a fireman; Caroline D. and James M. with whom Mrs. Hoar has made her home. Mrs. Hoar was a devoted member of the First Baptist church until her feeble health obliged her to give up active work. She was a faithful and devote woman and favored with a cheerful disposition and did much good during her long life. She was particularly bright and witty and but a few days before her death joked her son about an incident which occurred in his boyhood days, causing much amusement for the other members of the family. Mrs. Hoar was the last of the founders of the First Baptist church, and Rev. E. H. Sherwin in his address Sunday morning spoke of her good work, and also giving the notice of her death, which occurred but two hours before. The funeral which was private, was held at her late home Tuesday afternoon. Rev. E. H. Sherwin officiated. The burial was in Green River cemetery.
