Death of an Aged woman.

Mrs. Annie CUMMINGS, widow of the late Thomas CUMMINGS, died in this city Sunday at the home of her nephew, David G. THORNBERRY. About a month ago she sustained a fracture of the thigh from a fall, and had never rallied from the shock. Mrs. CUMMINGS was about eighty-five years of age, and has resided in Fairfield, where the husband died, perhaps eighteen years. Her acquaintance was not an extensive one, but she had many warm friends who admired her womanly excellences and will sorrow at her death. She leaves no family. The remains were interred Monday in the Evergreen cemetery, Rev. J. F. Magill conducting the funeral services.

Death of Mrs. Anna CUMMINGS.

Mrs. Anna CUMMINGS died of fracture of the femor (sic) and disease of the kidneys, Sunday, at the home of D. G. THORNBERRY, in the northwestern part of town. The funeral was held at the home Monday afternoon at two o'clock, Rev. Dr. Magill conducting the services.

Mrs. CUMMINGS was born in Pennsylvania April 7, 1811. At an early age she moved with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. GRIFFITH, to Bellville, Ohio, where at the age of twenty-two years she united with the Presbyterian church. She was married to Thomas CUMMINGS April 10, 1832, and came to this city April 25, 1867. She had no children of her own, and adopted three others, two boys and one girl, to whom she was the best of mothers. The three whom she adopted are Mrs. Dr. QUIN, of Oklahoma, and Messrs J. J. CUMMINGS and D. G. THORNBERRY, of this city, and with the last she has made her home since her husband's death, September 22, 1881. For the last five weeks she has suffered the most intense pain and death came to her as a relief, but to those who knew and loved her, her place can never be filled.
