Adams County Sentinel, 1821
Transcribed by Christine Spencer, July, 2008

On Wednesday, 16th inst., Mrs. Sally McKesson, consort of William McKesson of Liberty Twp., passed from this vale of tears to another and, it is hoped, better world. She was in the 75th year of her age and had lived upwards of half a century with her partner, who survives her. He is left, in solitary old age, a monument of the cruelty of death. But few ladies displayed so much equanimity in their various relations of life as did the deceased; and few equaled her, in a placid reliance upon a merciful Providence for kind and continued protection.
