Wife of Isaac Toscape Husband.

Exerpts from a letter from Philip (1797-1882) & Rachel Gnagey King, Somerset Co., PA, February 13, 1858 to cousin William Jesse (1813-1896) & Susanna Burgess King:

"I have to tell you that the last one of our aunts that lived in this part of the country is no more..that was Aunt Nancy Husband. She died on the evening of the 27th of last month after a illness of about foure months, or in other words a lameness about foure months before she died. She said she got up in the morning at the breavent [breakfast?] to set down to put on her shoes and mist the chair, and come down on the floor, and she said that she could have never raisd from that if she had not bean helped, and her left leg and hip was entierly helpless after that and remaind so untill she died. A little while before she died the pain and the swelling went out of her lame leg and seemd to draw over into the well leg and swelld it and paind her as bad as the one that was helpless, and then she got heartsick and was soon gone after she got sick and lost her appetite. Here perhaps it might be a little satisfaction to the friends to where this letter comes to know how it come that Aunt Nancy was brought away from her home and died at her daughter in Centreville. Sometime ago...I cannot say how long ago..her old man Husband put all his property out of his hands and give it into the hands of a young Marteeny and he was to take care of the old folk and Marteenys wife was to do the cooking and so forth, and they got along (only kind of) untill aunt got the fall and got so that she could not get along at all..then it went a good deal worse. For many times they got breakfast at six in the morning and then Marteeny and his wife would lock up every thing of eateable kind and then put off and they would see no more of them until night, and aunt saw that she sufferd for want of something to eat. It happens that one night Aunt's son, David's wife (Sarah Hill King), came to see them and she seen how things was done up and she went home and told David how it was and he came with a horse and buggey and got aunt in and brought her to Centreville. Now I have given a little of account of the way that aunt had it."

Nancy died at the home of her daughter Phoebe Walter, in New Centerville.
