THE CENTRAL RECORD, LANCASTER, KY., THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 21, 1901

Died at his home near Teatersville, Thursday night, the 14th, Uncle Rice Ross. He was in his 86th year, being the oldest man in this part of the county. He was born in 1815. He was twice married - his first wife Fannie Ross, died in 1885. Three children were born to them, two of whom survive, Mrs. J. M. Walker of Teatersville and Mrs. C. W. Moberly, of Lovington, Ill., the third daughter, Nannie, died in 1883. His second wife, who was Miss Eliza Woods is still living. We would say to the family, "Remember, the Lord giveth and He taketh away." Do not grieve that he is gone, for the Lord had left him to us so long. His counsel had weight and influence, he was kind to all, a devoted father and grandfather, and an affectionate husband. He was honest in every sense of the word and numbered his friends by the hundred. Young and old loved him and called him "Daddy." He was sick only a few days with pneumonia. His daughter came from Illinois Friday too late to wait on him in his sickness, but in time to see his quiet, peaceful face before he was buried. His funeral was preached Saturday, by Rev. Mr. Wolford, of Lancaster, and was buried in the old family burying ground on Paint Lick. The sympathy for this family in their affliction is universal. His funeral services were attended by a vast concourse of deeply sympathizing relatives and friends. Such a life as his is a benediction. It did its work, its glory which shall be seen after many days.
Mourn not, the father has called him home, never more to know heartaches, separations, pain or toil, where the air is always balmy and the flowers ever in bloom.
