January 16, 1895, in the Perry County Advocate and Press

"Dots from Marysville"

"Since our last letter to you Mrs. Davis Wagner and Miss Laura Milligan succumbed to disease and their spirit taken their flight to the beyond. William H. Gingrich has also died, and his daughter Linnie, as mentioned in former dots, still lingers with us."


Peoples Advocate & Press , January 23, 1895. and again in the "Dots from Marysville,"

Last week is was our sad duty to notice the death of William Watson Gingrich, an old resident of Marysville, and for a long time employed by the N.C. Railway in the round house. This week we are called upon to chronicle the death of another of the same household--the youngest daughter, Miss Melinda B. Gingrich, who died on the 17th inst., from a complication of diseases, including dropsy and heart failure. Miss Linnie had been sick all fall and winter and for weeks her death was not unexpected. She was attended by a number of physicians from Marysville, Harrisburg, and Georgetown, but the disease could not be overcome and she fell a victim to the fell-destroyer. Her funeral took place from her late residence on Sunday afternoon and was attended by a large circle of sorrowing friends. She was a member of Trinity Reformed Sunday school and congregation, and her pastor conducted the services at the house, with interment in the family lot in the Chestnut Grove cemetery. The sympathies of the community go out toward the family in their sorrow.
