The Rochester Sentinel - Saturday, October 31, 1908:
Mrs. Susan CALVERT, mother of Mrs. J. N. ORR, and a former resident of this city, died Thursday morning at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Maggie BOND, near Peru, aged 83 years.
Mrs. Calvert was a remarkable woman in many respects. She was the widow of the late Rev. R. H. CALVERT, who for more than forty years was actively engaged in the Methodist
ministry in this state. He was one of the pioneer preachers, riding from charge to charge on horseback. In all of this work Mrs. Calvert was a constant helper. She came of a family of preachers having three brothers, two sisters and several nieces in addition to her husband and one son, who were regularly ordained ministers. She was particularly strong in exhortation and prayer, and an active worker in the temperance cause, never compromising with anything that
had the appearance of evil. During her busy life she reared a family of eight children, four of whom survive to revere her memory and continue her work. The funeral will be held at Mexico today, where she will be buried by the side of her
husband.
