Well-Known Aged Citizen Passes Away in His Eightieth Year---He Was a Native of Morris Township


Claysville, March 13.— Joseph Seaman Carroll, an aged resident of Claysville, died at his home here Sunday morning, March 13, 1927, at 6:20 o’clock, of heart trouble and infirmities due to his advanced age, he being in his eightieth year.

Mr. Carroll was born July 24, 1847, on the farm later owned by the late Samuel Farabee, father of Dr. William Farabee, Morris township, near Sparta. He was the son of William and Elizabeth Seaman Carroll.

Mr. Carroll was married August 18, 1875, to Rebecca Owens [sic], of Nebo Ridge, and had resided in West Virginia and Pennsylvania the greater part of his life. He joined the Cumberland Presbyterian church at Old Concord and always was active in Christian work wherever he lived for more than 62 years. He was a member of the Missionary Alliance church in Washington at the time of his death.

His wife survives besides a daughter and two sons, Mrs. Emma Jackson, of Blaine township; William A. Carroll, of Claysville, and Gilbert M. Carroll, of Washington. Two brothers and a sister also survive, Warren M. Carroll, McMechen, W. Va.; William H. Carroll, Guernsey county, Ohio, and Mrs. Mary E. Chambers, of Claysville.

Funeral services will be conducted at the late home in Claysville, Tuesday afternoon at 2 o’clock, by Rev. J. V. Krall, of the Alliance church, and Rev. H. F. Pierce, pastor Methodist Episcopal church of Claysville. Interment will be in Washington cemetery.

(Transcriber’s notes: 1) Joseph Seaman Carroll’s wife’s maiden name was Owen. 2) Newspaper editors did not capitalize second words in common "Proper Noun" phrases prior to the 1940s, as we do and expect today. 3) Due to the use of the phrase, “ died at his home here Sunday,,,” and “Funeral Services will be conducted at the late home in Claysville, Tuesday,,,” it is probable this obituary ran in the Claysville Recorder on Monday March 14, 1927 – Lou Emeterio)
