OBITUARIES

Mrs. Samuel Erwin

Mrs. Samuel Erwin, died at the residence of her daughter, Mrs. 
Lizzie H. Way, on North Green street, this morning of pnuemonia, 
after a brief illness. 

Mrs. Erwin was born in Montgomery county, Pa., March 14, 1818, 
where her early girlhood was spent. When sixteen years of age 
she removed with her parents to Columbiana, O., where she lived 
the greater part of her life. 

Three years after going to Ohio she was married to Samuel Erwin, 
at Franklin Square, a village in that state, near which her parents 
resided. Of this union four children, two daughters and two sons, 
were born, all of whom survive. They are Mrs. Lizzie H. Way, of this 
city; Mrs. W. S. Hisy, of St. Louis; Clarkson Erwin, of Ingalls, Ok; 
and Edwin Erwin, of Kansas City, Mo. The two latter have been apprised 
by telegraph of their mother's death and are expected tomorrow. 

Deceased had been resident of Mt. Vernon during the past winter, 
having come here on the 24th of last October for a visit with her daughter 
and other relatives. She was taken ill last Thursday afternoon with acute 
pneumonia and  although every endeavor that skill and experience could 
suggest was made by Dr. J. H. Mitchell, her physician, they were unable 
to arrest the progress of the malady due to her weakened position. 

A service will be held over the remains here, probably sometime on 
Monday, after which the body will be taken to Columbiana for burial. 
Mrs. Way and Mrs. Hisy will accompany the body to Ohio, where the 
obsequies will take place.
