The Obituary for Prescilla is reported as follows:
"ROSS-Mrs. Priscella Elizabeth ROSS, wife of G. W. ROSS, of the Blackland community, was born August 10, 1857 and died March 24, 1896. She was the mother of 11 children, 8 of whom are living. She professed faith in Jesus in the summer of 1871 and joined the Protestant Methodist Church. After some years she connected herself with the Cumberland Presbyterian Church, and at the time of her death was a member of the Mathew Fontaine congregation. She was a very humble and consistent Christian, a self sacrificing wife and a devoted mother. Her life was spent for the good of others. Patient in suffering, constant in the discharge of her duties as a wife and mother she exhibited those noble traits of character that exalt the life of a woman. Hearts are bereaved when another is called to her long home. The husband mourns for his best earthly friend. The Heavenly Father has said: As a mother comforteth so will I comfort you. We pray that the memory of the deceased mother may be a source of comfort to the bereaved, and an incentive to the husband and the children to so live that in the sweet bye; they may be an unbroken family in the "Mansion of Rest."
