At her late residence in New-Harford, on the 6th inst., Widow LOIS WOODRUFF, relict of the late Capt. Roswell Woodruff, in the 74th year of her age. She had enjoyed but feeble health for several years. The loss of one of the best of husbands, four years ago, and several other near connexions, with the various cares and trials incident to her situation, advanced in life as she was, had made severe inroads upon her constitution, particularly the nervous system. Though she had, till the Sunday previous to her death, enjoyed as comfortable health as she had done for months, she was seized on the evening of the 4th inst., with a fit of apoplexy from which she never awoke; though she continued to live and breathe, without any apparent distress, till the evening of the 6th, when she expired. She has left one son and one daughter, both residents of Watertown, three grandsons, who were early left orphans and for several years had lived with her, and a numerous circle of warm friends to whom she had become greatly endeared by her many virtues, to mourn her removal from the circle of the living, though they mourn not as those without hope. She had long been, like her departed husband, an unwavering believer in the doctrine of the final salvation, through Christ, of the whole human family. This blessed faith sustained her through many severe afflictions, was the solace of her existence here, and stood by her till the period of her death. She was attached to the Universalist society and church of New-Hartford. Her funeral obsequies were attended at the church in that place on the 8th and a discourse delivered by the Editor of this paper [Rev. Dolphus Skinner] to the mourning friends and a respectable auditory from Job v:26. "Thou shalt come to thy grave in a full age, like as a shock of corn cometh into his season."
