WOODY, Mrs. Margaret Carr — After a long and useful life, Mrs. Margaret Carr Woody, 85, died at 3:50 o'clock yesterday afternoon at 1412 Sixth avenue, where she made her home with her daughter, Mrs. Julius Fishbach and Mrs. David Smith. Mrs. Woody was born of English parentage in Buffalo, N. Y. October 20, 1837. In early life she came with her parents to the Kanakha valley. The Carrs established themselves in Putnam county and Margaret married Samuel H. Woody on February 14, 1861. In the early eighties the Woody family came to Huntington to procure medical treatment for Mr. Woody who was declining in health and who died shortly afterwards. Two sons born to Mrs. Woody died in childhood, but she is survived by three daughters, Mrs. Julius Fishbach, Mrs. David B. Smith and Mrs. John Shakelford. There are several grand children, including Misses Flora and Elizabeth Fishbach, popular teachers in the city school system, the Rev. Julius Fishbach, a rising young minister of the Baptist church, and Leon Shackelford, of the Huntington Drug Company. Mrs. Woody was a member of the Fifth Avenue Baptist Church throughout her life in Huntington, and was well known as a bright example of exemplary Christian womanhood and motherhood. The serenity and goodness which marked her life remained with her in the twilight years and even through a long illness which preceded her departure. It was her desire that she be buried in Putnam county beside her husband and sons, and her body will rest in the Fishbach-Smith mausoleum in Spring Hill cemetery only until the opening of spring permits its conveyance to her old home. Funeral services will be held at the residence on Sixth avenue at 10:30 oclock Thursday morning, under the conduct of the Rev. Matthew L. Wood, D.
