6 September 1877 - The Tipton Advertiser
DIED At her residence at Bethel, in this township and county, Saturday evening, Sept. 1st, 1877, Mrs. MARY ANN, wife of James C. Horn, in the fifty-eighth year of her age.
Deceased was born in Bedford county, Pa., March 6th, 1820, and was united in marriage with her now widowed husband in the year 1840. In 1854 the family removed to Iowa and settled 3 1/2 miles south of Tipton, fourteen years ago changing to their present residence the same distance west.
Although rather feeble in health, Mrs. Horn was not considered especially ailing Saturday. A physician was called for another member of the family in the evening, and gave her a simple sleeping powder, after taking which she went up stairs and retired. In a few minutes her son was called to her room by a slight noise and had only time to call Mr. H. before, without a struggle or apparent suffering, she was at rest.
In 1841 the deceased was converted and united with the M.E. church. She has ever been a consistent Christian, a devoted wife, a tender mother and a kind friend and neighbor. Beside her husband, a family of three sons and two daughters are left to mourn, three having gone before. Two of her brothers, Messrs. George and Casper Filson, and three of her sisters, Mrs. Miller, Mrs. Sproat and Mrs. Shaffer also live in this vicinity. She was the eldest, the first married and the only one deceased of a family of ten. The funeral services Monday forenoon, were very largely attended, Rev. B. C. Barnes officiating.
