Madison County Woman Is Dead

Mrs. Pierce Passes Away at the Home of Her Daughter

At the ripe old age of 70 years, Mrs. Catherine Pierce, mother of Elias Pierce of this city, expired at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Margaret Jones in Lafayette township, a short distance from the little village of Florida. Mrs. Pierce has been ill for several years with droopsy which later developed into leakage of the heart.
Mrs. Pierce was born and raised in Madison county, residing near Frankton for years. She was the daughter of the late Elias Groenendyke. After her marriage she moved to her husband's farm near Linwood, where she lived until nine years ago when she moved to the home of her daughter.
The funeral will be held Saturday morning at 10 o'clock at the residence of the daughter, Rev. Albright of Pendleton, officiating. Burial will take place in the Maplewood cemetery at Anderson. A brother residing in Missouri is enroute to Alexandria for the funeral.
Mrs. Pierce is survived by five children---Mrs. Maggie Jones, Mrs. Mattie Johnson, Richland township, William Pierce, Linwood; Elias Pierce, Alexandria; Lyman Pierce, near Anderson; three brothers and sisters---Mrs. Thomas Stapleton, Alexandria; Thomas Groendyke, Linwood; and John Groendyke of Kansas City, Mo.
