Lucy Gordon Brock obituary, Waynesburg Republican, Waynesburg, Pennsylvania, 11 March 1944, page 5, column 5.

"Mrs. Lucy Gordon Brock, aged 88, widow of Dr. R. E. Brock and member of a prominent Greene County family, died at 4:45 p. m. yesterday (Friday), March 10, 1944, at her home, 103 East High street. She had been bedfast for the last five weeks.

A lifelong resident of Waynesburg and vicinity, Mrs. Brock was a descendant of pioneer Greene County settlers, and a daughter of John Brice Gordon and Delilah Inghram Gordon. She was born May 30, 1855, at the old Gordon homestead, about three and one half miles south of Waynesburg in Franklin Township. She attended Waynesburg College and was graduated with the class of 1876. She was married June 6, 1891, to Dr. R. E. Brock, prominent Waynesburg physician, who died March 15, 1932.

Mrs. Brock was a member of the Presbyterian Church of Waynesburg. She was a member of the John Corbly chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution, and was a charter member and past president of the Greene County Historical Society, which was organized in 1925. Until recent years she was also actively affiliated with a number of social organizations, including the Waynesburg Woman's Club and the Library Club, of which she was past president, and also belonged to the Women's Auxiliary of the Greene County Medical Society.

Mrs. Brock was the mother of one daughter, Delilah Brock Shannon, who died Jan. 22, 1935, and besides one grandson, Herbert Brock Shannon, of Washington, Pa., she leaves one brother, J. B. Gordon, of near Waynesburg."
