Frederick Post - Tuesday, April 18, 1922

Mrs. Rosa Jane Stewart Annan, aged 81 years, widow of James Cochran Annan, one of the leading merchants in the northern section of Frederick county in his time and a member of the banking firm of Annan, Horner & Co., died at her home at Emmitsburg on Thursday after a brief illness. Up to the time she was taken ill, ten days ago, Mrs. Annan had never known what a day of sickness meant. She caught a slight cold last Thursday and gave it very little attention, but pneumonia quickly developed.

Mrs. Annan was born near Graceham, Frederick County, January 7, 1841, and moved to Emmitsburg when a girl where she had since resided. She was of a retiring disposition, although at all times interested in the affairs of her home town, keeping in touch with public matters and helping toward anything that would be beneficial to the community. She was a member of the Presbyterian church.

She s survived by one son, J. Stewart Annan, who is well known throughout the State as one of the leaders of the Republican party in Frederick county, where he was a former burgress of Emmitsburg and for a number of years a member of the Board of County Commissioners.
The funeral took place Saturday afternoon, Rev. John T. Chase, pastor of the Presbyterian church, officiating. Mrs. Annan's six nephews pallbearers.
