parents/Jacob Drumheller and Mary Kinnard
spouse/James Wilson Rhoads

Mrs. Caroline RHOADS, relict of ex-sheriff James W. RHOADS, died in her
home at Harvey's Lake at 8:20 o'clock Wednesday evening, of dropsy, aged
about 65 years. Though having suffered from an illness of two years'
duration, she always maintained the happy, kindly disposition, which had
characterized her whole life. Only a few days ago witnessed, with many
evidences of happiness and delight, a number of her large families of
children engaged in merry pastime on the spacious lawn in front of the
house. It may be here stated that she was a woman of remarkably fond
maternal instincts. It was the chief pride of her life that she was the
mother of ten children, all noble specimens of perfect physical and
mental man and womanhood, and association with, and careful regard for
them, formed their chief pleasure in the very hour when she was forced
by approaching dissolution to bid them a final farewell and invoke the
blessing of a kind Providence upon them.
