Ringgold Record, 1899
About 2 o'clock a.m. Saturday, February 4, 1899, wanting less than two weeks of having reached the niniteth (sic, should be
her 91st) anniversary of her birth, and after several weeks of helplessness owing to her advanced age, Grandma HARTLEY
heard the summons of the Master and entered that mysterious realm whose portals we call death.
Grandma HARTLEYS's maiden
name was Elizabeth HAMMERS and Pennsylvania the state of her nativity. In 1828 she married Samuel HARTLEY who preceded her
nine years. In 1853 she joined the Baptist church, to which she belonged at the time of her death.
Mr. and Mrs. HARTLEY moved to the vicinity of Maloy in 1875 where they resided continuously until death.
Thirteen children, were born to Mr. and Mrs. HARTLEY, of whom eight are still living, as follows: Mrs. V. WORTHINGTON, Mrs.
J. W. MAPLE, Mrs. W. D. [illegible], Maloy; Mrs. P. J. WISDOM, Blockton, Mrs. Frank SEATON, Delphos; Mrs. Caroline SICKLES,
Iroquois, Ill., Mrs. J. C. HART, Carmichael, Penn; Stephen HARTLEY, Ridgeway, Mo.
The relatives from Delphos, Blockton,
and Maloy were present, as were also her grandson, Ben WORTHINGTON, and family of Conway.
Grandma HARTLEY was a pleasant old lady and was a more than welcome guest with all who knew her.
NOTE: Samuel HARTLEY, husband of Elizabeth (HAMMERS), was born September 1, 1805, and died September 1, 1885. They were
interred at Platte River Cemetery near Maloy, Ringgold County, Iowa.
