OBITUARY - MARGARET ELIZABETH JOSEPHINE (CHAMBERS) ROSS HAMMACK

Mrs. Margaret Elizabeth Josephine HAMMACK, eldest daughter of Mr. and Mr. Joseph CHAMBERS, was born Sept. 15, 1857. She quietly fell asleep in Jesus Saturday, Jan. 4, in Cainsville, at the age of 61 years, 2 months and 16 days.

For some time her health had been impaired, and when seized with the dread epidemic that is now sweeping our land, her constitution was not able to withstand the ravages of the disease.

When a mere girl she was of a religious disposition, and early in life she professed faith in Christ and was baptised into the fellowship of the Baptist Chruch at Cainsville, by Rev. J. H. BURROWS. Later her membership was transferred to the Mt. Moriah Baptist Church, where for a number of years, she faithfully served her Master, when her membership was transferred to White Oak, where it remained until her death. While a stranger to the writer, yet I am told by those who knew her, that she lived her profession, and was kind and gentle in spirit and patient in suffering.

At the age of 22 she was united in marriage to John ROSS, to which union two children were born -. A. ROSS, of Ridgeway, and Mrs. W. A. WRIGHT, of Cainsville. In 1882 death claimed her companion, and she remained a widow for 8 years, when she married Rev. Isaiah HAMMACK. One son was born to this union - Delbert HAMMACK, of Mt. Ayr, Iowa. Her three children survive her. In 1916 Rev. HAMMACK passed away, and she remained a widow until death. Thus her life has been one of sadness and sorrow, as well as of sunshine and happiness.

Besides her children, she leaves behind her three brothers and three sisters - Frank CHAMBERS, of Bethany; Ode CHAMBERS, of Mt. Moriah; Alva CHAMBERS, of Princeton; Mrs. W. J. HAMMACK, of Ridgeway; Mrs. Mary DALE, of Mt. Moriah; and Mrs. Cora LONG, of Princeton. These all survive her, besides a host of relatives and friends to mourn her loss.

In the death of Mrs. HAMMACK, Cainsville lost one of its loved and respected citizens, and the cause of Christ a mother in Israel. Her place will be hard to fill. Many a drooping spirit has by her words of kindness been cheered, and many an aching head has her soothing touch given ease. May the lovely Christian mantle she wore, fall on her loved ones she left behind.
