Aged Woman's Funeral Conducted in Hickory
Mrs Martha Anne Bolch dead at the age of 95 years
Hickory May 2? The funeral of Mrs Martha Anne Bolch, widow of Logan Bolch, was held today from St Stephen's Lutheran Church by Rev E J Sox. Mrs Bolch, who would have been 95 years old had she lived until July, had the distinction of being one of the few women in North Carolina who was the mother of a Confederate soldier and whose husband also fought for the Stars and Bars. She suffered a stroke of paralysis last Saturday, from which death resulted Tuesday night.
Her husband, Logan Bolch was wounded in the Battle of Gettysburg and died in a hospital at Richmond. Near the close of the war her eldest son, Nathaniel A Bolch, now 73 years of age, donned the uniform of the Stars and Bars and went to the front. The mother remained at home, reared her family and lived to see her three daughters and two sons grow to comparative old age, and herself one of five generations of the Bolch family. Her longevity was remarkable.
An earnest Christian woman, who loved her home and children and children's children, Mrs Bolch was one of the most remarkable women in this section. One of her grandchildren, Charles P Bolch, is 50 years of age and has grandchildren of his own.
Her children are Mrs Camilla Gilbert, Mrs John F Reep, Mrs Andrew Hefner, Nathaniel A Bolch, and Jefferson Bolch.
