February 23, 1870, at the residence of her son, Leroy Hume and
brothers near Williamstown, Miss Mary K. Fugate, aged 65 years,
9 months, 8 days. About 4 years ago she was stricken with paralysis
from the effects of which she never recovered. Her maiden name
was HOBDAY; her father was a Virginian who settled in Pendleton
County, where perhaps she was born. On the 22nd day of May,
1823, she was united in marriage with Major Joel B. Hume, who
many excellent traits of character are well remembered by the
people of Grant County, and who died in Covington of smallpox
in the early part of 1850. October 30, 1855 she again intermarried
with Robert S. Fugate, Esq., of Gallansville, Pendleton County,
a well-know gentleman who survives her. If the kind attention
of an affectionate husband and most devoted children could have
availed, she would still be among the living. During the years
of her affliction, in hope of effecting her recovery and relieving
her mind, her dutiful children at their several home became
her tender nurses. For her comfort her husband came with her
to her son's residence in Grant. She next became the tender
care of her daughter, Mrs. James M. Clarkson of Covington. Next
her husband took her to his home in Gallansville. There her
daughter, Mrs. Uriel Harrison, at Williamstown used all her
efforts to relieve and comfort her mother. Again her sons, Leroy,
James, William, and George, brought her back to her old home
where her devoted daughter, Mrs. James W. Hutchinson, was her
constant nurse until her death.

age of maturity are deprived of a good and kind mother. The
funeral services were largely attended by a number of friends,
she having been a member of the M. E. Church for a number of
years. The church mourns the loss of one of its best members,
but their loss is her eternal gain.

- As my wife, Lucinda, absents herself from my home, I give
notice that I will not be responsible for any debts she may
contract. Also, that any person or persons occupying the house

to me for rent or for use and occupation. Paul Waite. South
