ELLEN GRIMES

ESTEEMED MEMBER OF PIONEER FAMILY CLAIMED BY DEATH

At 6:30 o'clock, Saturday morning, Mrs. Ellen Grimes, one of the community's older and most esteemed citizens passed away, at the home of her daughter, Mrs. A. F. Kahler and family, with whom she made her home. Mrs. Grimes died of cerebral embolism, having been stricken several days before her demise. Up to that time she had enjoyed very good health.

The deceased was a member of one of New Holland's pioneer families, a life-long citizen of this community and a much beloved woman. She will be greatly missed in a wide circle of relatives and friends.

The following obituary prepared and read by Rev. C. L. Thomas, of East Ringgold, who officiated at the funeral services, tells a good life-story of Mrs. Grimes:

Ellen Thomas, daughter of John L. and Susan Buckworth Thomas, was born in Ross county, Ohio, October 9, 1844, and passed from mortal sight to her heavenly home, September 20, 1930. She thus lacked 19 days of being 86 years of age.

Her mother dying when she [was] small, an uncle and aunt, Alexander and Eliza Draper, took the motherless girl into their home, in New Holland.

In that home, December 7, 1865, she was united in marriage with William J. Grimes. Together she and her husband walked, sharing life's sunshine and shadow for nearly 50 years. Six months before their Golden Wedding, on March 18, 1915, her husband went on before. Most of the time since Mrs. Grimes spent in the pleasant and gracious home of Dr. and Mrs. A.F. Kahler, her daughter and son-in-law.

Five children came to their home; one, Lida, a talented and promising young lady was called home, November 18, 1892. There survive their parents Myrta O., wife of John Fidler, of St. Louis; Charles W., Ethel C., wife of Dr. A F. Kahler, and Glenn T., all of New Holland. Five grandchildren are also bereaved by her death, Helen and Sheldon Grimes, Marie Shasteen, and her children, Grimes Kahler and Eleanore Fidler.

She herself, was the eldest of five children, having three sisters and one brother. Of these only two sisters yet live, America and Lida, both of Boise, Idaho.

When a child of nine, she united with the M. E. Church, in New Holland. Later, soon after her marriage, she was converted in a meeting at the old Cedar Grove church. Thence to the end of life. She gladly gave to the church and its great Head a life of deep devotion, rich in rare Christian graces.

She belongs to the W. F. M. S., at Atlanta, and was a perpetual member of the W. H. M. S., at New Holland. She had long be a member of the W. C. T. U., and although she felt unable to take a very active part in the work, she was an earnest believer in their principles and a loyal supporter of all three organizations with her means.

Funeral services were held at the M. E. church, at 2:00 o'clock, Monday afternoon, in charge of Rev. Thomas, a former local pastor and very close friend of Mrs. Grimes and family. He was assisted by Rev. M. R. Crabbe, pastor of the church.

Besides the above memoir, a fitting funeral sermon was read and a prayer was offered. The choir sang Abide With Me and Nearer My God to Thee, favorite hymns of the deceased. There was an abundance of beautiful floral tributes. Serving as pall bearers were Cash Kirk, Milton Bennett, Joe Bennett, John T. Dick, Wilby G. Hyde and George Kirk. Interment was made in the New Holland cemetery. Funeral Director A. W. Kirk was in charge of the arrangements.

JAMES KEARNEY

James Kearney was born four-one-half miles south of New Holland, Nov. 4th, 1810, and died Feb. 5th, 1888, aged 77 yrs 2 mos. 21 days. He was the eighth son of a family of eleven children. His father Thomas Kearney was Irish, born in Moneygall, Kings county, Ireland, April 15th, 1765, and his mother Sarah Baxley was of Dutch descent. They were married in Baltimore, Md., Dec. 11th, 1791. From there he removed to Tenn., and thence to Ohio, locating in the northwestern part of Ross County. Longevity was a characteristic of the Kearneys and James was no exception to the general rule. He was married March 15th, 1851, to Miss Eleanor B. Hays. The fruits of this union were eight children, five boys and three girls, six of whom survive him. In the autumn of 1886 weakened by age and excessive labor he fell and for fifteen months was a great sufferer but he bore his affliction with greatest patience and resignation. During the last months of his life, he waited patiently for the time when the Master should call him hence. On Sunday the 5th of this month, the summons came and quietly without a tremor, and with an expression of heavenly peace, the soul took its flight to the God who gave it. His funeral services were held at the Christian church, New Holland, conducted by the pastor of the M.E. church, assisted by E. B. Lewis. His remains were laid to rest in the beautiful New Holland cemetery. He leaves a wife, four children, and many friends who mourn his departure. He was a man much respected by all. God bless the bereaved ones. R.W. [NB: This is from a newspaper clipping which was glued in the front of a diary kept by Abraham Lincoln Kearney Sr. starting in 1888.
