Eleanor S. Kerfoot
Dayton Herald- May 1, 1894


The Herald has already announced the death of Mrs. Eleanor S. Kerfoot, the aged widow of our late townsman, Richard A. Kerfoot. This occurred at the home of her son, Samuel H. Kerfoot, in Des Moines, Iowa, on last Friday morning, 27th inst. Owing to the absence in San Francisco of her eldest son, Charles A. Kerfoot, of Chicago, the removal of the remains to Dayton has been delayed for a few days. There were Divine services held Monday afternoon at the house in Des Moines, and the body was placed in the vault till the latter part of this week. It is expected that the interment will take place here on Monday afternoon, May 7th, from the residence of her son, Barrett W. Kerfoot. The services will be held at the Church of St. Andrews.

Mrs. Kerfoot came to our city in its comparatively early days—so long ago as 1837. At first she and her husband were members of the Methodist Church, but in 1843 they became communicants of Christ Church (Episcopal). Mrs. Kerfoot's whole life has been that of quiet, Christian faithfulness. As a mother she has ever been tender and unwearying, and she leaves a large family—five sons and two daughters, to bear loving witness to her blessed memory. They are Rev. Richard T. Kerfoot, Clyde, N.Y.; Charles A. Kerfoot, Chicago, Ill.; Barrett W. Kerfoot, Dayton; Mrs. Benj. F. Gump, Chicago; Samuel H. Kerfoot, Des Moines, Ia.; Mrs. Benj. F. Haughton, Cincinnati; Wm. A. Kerfoot, Des Moines, Ia. The husband and father died several years ago.

Mrs. Eleanor Kerfoot will be very pleasantly recalled by elderly citizens, who greatly esteemed her for her personal loving characteristics, and for her Christian virtues, and there will be heartfelt sorrow at her demise. Her death removes another of the elderly citizens who may be said to have grown up with the city, and shared in its social and church life.
