The death of Mrs. Lydia Van Ealy for six decades a faithful member of Fairmount United Brethren church, occurred at her home near East Finley, at nine oíclock Tuesday morning, June 17, 1919, of cancer aged 73 years, 11 months and (illegible) days. A short funeral service was held at her home Thursday forenoon and the full service followed at the church, conducted by her pastor, Rev. G. J. Colledge. Interment in the Fairmount cemetery.
The deceased was a life long resident of East Finley, born July 3, 1845, daughter of William and Elizabeth Seeman [sic] Carroll. Her schooling was obtained in the township schools and she was trained in farm life. On December 17, 1872, she was united in marriage with George W. Ealy, native of Cross Creek township and successful farmer. To them were born one daughter and two sons, Miss Mary E. Ealy and William Hazelett Ealy who lived with their mother, and John Hamilton Ealy, deceased. The father died near 25 years ago. Mrs. Ealy was possessed of many excellent traits of character, and during the most of her sixty years of church life she was active in its interests, in missions and other good cause. She had a wide circle of friends. Since the first of January, 1917, she had been afflicted with cancer. All that could be done for her relief was done and she bore her affliction with Christian fortitude. Besides the son and daughter above named, one sister and three brothers survive her, Mrs. (illegible) Chambers of Old Concord; Wa (illegible) M. Carroll, of Moundsville; Joseph S. Carroll of Washington, and William H. Carroll of Guernsey, Ohio.
