Death of Mrs. M.E. Aull

Mrs. Mary Ellen Aull died Tuesday morning at about four o'clock at her residence south of town after a short illness of heart disease. Although in her eighty-first year, Mrs. Aull had been in good health close up to the time of her death and the news of her having passed away, came as a sad surprise to the community.

Mary E. Meteer Aull was born in Monroe County, Missouri, March 17, 1832, the daughter of William and Sarah Meteer of Augusta County, Virginia. By the death of her parents while she was quite young, she was left an orphan. In 1847 she came to Lexington with an uncle, John Allen, and after living with his family for a while, Mrs. Aull made her home with Miss Elizabeth Aull, the founder of the noted Elizabeth Aull seminary.

She was married in this city February 22, 1853, to John Aull, and a long happy life followed the union until 1893 when her husband died at Philadelphia, where he had gone for medical treatment. Mr. and Mrs. Aull were the parents of nine children one of which, George, died in infancy. The other eight, all of which attended the bedside of their mother during her last illness, are as follows; Mrs. Alexander Graves, John, William, James, Virginia, Edward and Watson P., of this city and Mrs. S. Percy Silver of Mercedes, Texas.
