Hannah Woodruff (Heaton) Baker
Died, on Sabbath morning last, after a most painful illness, Mrs. Hannah
W. Baker, consort of Dr. H.
Baker of this place and eldest daughter of James Heaton, Esq.
of Butler co. She was born in Green county, Penn., Dec. 14, 1801. Her
parents emigrated to Ohio when she was an infant, since when she has resided
in Butler and Warren counties. She was the subject of much affliction
through life. In childhood, she suffered much from scrofulous affections,
which sensibly affected her in after live. And for the last ten years
she scarcely enjoyed a single day’s health. Her last attack was
extremely severe, which she bore with much patience, in humble submission
to the will of Heaven. After suffering for more than three weeks with
scarcely any mitigation of her pain, having admonished and exhorted her
friends to prepare for death; and having committed her family to God,
and give to anyone her dying admonition, she expired without a struggle,
a sigh or a groan. By this event, a husband and four children have suffered
an irreparable loss.
Dr. Baker would take this
opportunity to express his gratitude to his brethren of the medical profession;
to those female friends of his late wife, who were so assiduous and indefatigable
in their kind attention to her during her last illness; and to the citizens
of Lebanon generally for their friendly offices during this scene of deep
affliction. Of all those kind and friendly attentions he will ever cherish
the most grateful remembrance.
