United Brethren Obituary
Mrs. Lucinda Jane Prough, widow of Harrison Prough, was born in Troumble county, Ohio, December 15, 1847, and departed this life December 26, 1919, aged seventy-two years and eleven days. She was united in marriage to Harrison Prough October 4, 1868, who preceded her in death six years ago.

To this union were born nine children, all of whom are living except one who died in infancy. Grandma Prough has spent all her life in Wells county except five years of her early life. After her marriage to Harrison Prough, they moved to the farm two miles south of Zanesville, Indiana, where she lived until the death messenger called her home.

She was converted in early life, and united with the English Lutheran church where she lived a faithful Christian life. In the year of 1897 she united with the United Brethren church at Zanesville, where she has lived a faithful Christian life until death.

The weather was never too bad for her to go to church; many times she walked to church, and sometimes twice a day. She loved to work in the vineyard of the Master as her life best tells. Many times she has been heard to shout the praises of our blessed Savior in the congregation and not only in the church, but she loved to read her Bible and would shout aloud his praises in the home.

She leaves to mourn her departure, three sons, five daughters, one sister, nineteen grandchildren and many other relatives and friends. Our loss is her eternal gain. The funeral was conducted by the writer. Text, Psalms 116: 15. The body was laid to rest in the cemetery near the church, to wait the great resurrection morn.
