Obituary: Prudence Mead exchanged mortality for life, at her son Alvin's, in the town of Greenwood, on the 9th of June, in the 84th year of her age. "A widow, a widow indeed, A mother in Israel is done." Mother Mead was a daughter of Isaac Anderson, of Westchester Co, who was gathered in among the first fruits of American Methodism. Enos Mead, the companion of her youth, was an officer in the revolutionary war, a Christian, and a Methodist, born in Greenwich, Fairfield Co, Conn., 1761, and died in Meads Settlement, Steuben Co, in the 78th year of his age. Mother Mead succeeded in giving the right impress to the hands of her children, and in her old age could indulge in the pleasing reflection, that all of her ten children, and thirty-six of her grand-children had become experimentally acquainted with God. In one of the class books on this charge, you might find enrolled twenty of these Meads, besides some females of the family, who have changed their name. In all, there are forty-six of the family, members of the M.E. Church. This is the right kind of evidence, of the aged mother's piety and faithfulness. Before many of us were born, she occupied a place in the Church, and retained an honorable standing among us, until transferred to the Church triumphant. - J. Ashworth (source: Northern Christian Advocate, Auburn, NY, July 1847 (published monthly), p. 56).
