Died of pneumonia on the 26th of March, Sister Mary Ann Matlock, wife of Bro. S.H. Matlock. The subject was born in Bourbon Co., Ky. 4 Oct. 1831. When she was only two years of age her parents removed to this state, locating in Rush Co., near to Rushville, so that almost her entire life was spent in this community.
In 1838 under the ministry of John O'Kane she obeyed the Saviour and united with the church. In this place and until the day of her death, she continued a faithful active, earnest member, not only in the seasons of the church's prosperity, but in its adversity as well. Her whole life as a Disciple of Christ was a beautiful illustration of him who "went about doing good. " Her chief anxiety was to bring all about her, and her own family under the power of the gospel of Christ.
She was buried on the 17th anniversary of her marriage. A husband and nine children remain to mourn a loss to them irreparable. May the pitying Father in Heaven who "tempers the wind to the shorn lamb" gently guide the motherless children in the way that leads to light and love eternal. (2nd. Wife of Smith Hampton Matlock. jwh)
