Death coming quietly and peacefully ended the life of another of Mercer
County's well-known pioneer residents Wednesday afternoon at 4 o'clock,
when after two months' illness with cancer of the stomach, Mrs.
Hannah Bunnell, aged 83 years, passed away at the home of her
daughter Mrs. Wm. S. McGeehon, 608 Market

to Mercer Co. with her parents, residing at Clarksville, where she
remained all her life until a few years ago when she took up her residence
with her daughter in Youngstown. Mrs. Bunnell was a member of the
Methodist Church of Clarksville, and leaves a host of friends in that
borough as well as in Sharon and throughout this part of the county.
Mrs. George Phillips, a daughter of this
city, was present at the bedside when death came.
The deceased leaves a large family of descendants consisting of nine
daughters and sons, 35 grandchildren and 28 great grandchildren. The

which the body will be taken to Clarksville for internment. Services
were held in the M.E. Church at Clarksville at 2 o'clock, conducted by Rev.
