Ringgold Record, 1894

FUNERAL SERVICES of MRS. IRELAND.

The funeral of Mrs. T. J. [Mary E. BROWN] IRELAND took place from the Ringgold church on Sunday, October 1894 at 11 a.m. Mrs. IRELAND had been held in high esteem in the church and community. Her husband, T. J. IRELAND and family are also highly respected. The suddenness and sadness of her accidental death called out a great deal of true sympathy. For these reasons and others, a large assembly convened at the church and but a small part of them could get into the house. One hundred and forty-five wagons closed into the procession while many had gone to the cemetery already had gone home. Rev. D. W. FINK, the pastor, conducted the service, preaching from 2 Cor. 5:1, "For we know if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, etc." The text had been marked in the Bible of the deceased. The sermon was excellent and appropriate. The church choir led in the music. After the service many friends passed by the burial casket and took a last look at the deceased.

Mrs. IRELAND's maiden name was Mary E. BROWN and she was born in Bartholomew county, Ind., on October 11, 1840, and had about reached her 54th year. March 15th 1874, she was united in marriage to Mr. IRELAND. They came to Ringgold county eight years ago. Mrs. IRELAND was the victim of a runaway on October 10th. Her son, R. C. FULTZ was moving west and she accompanied him several miles on the way, and on the return there was some mishap and Mrs. IRELAND was thrown out of the buggy, and as the event proved, was seriously injured. She lingered but a short time.

She early united with the church and has been an active member of the Ringgold Evangelical church for years, ever since she came to Iowa and has been a faithful consistent member. Distinguished for fine business abilities, untiring industry and sterling integrity; her talents were in demand in her church.

She possessed an affable genial sunny disposition and won the affections of all, both young and old. She lived in their hearts and was buried with a sense of general grief. She leaves a husband, sons, daughters and a large concourse of friends to mourn her departure.

NOTE: Mary IRELAND died the day before her 54th birthday. She was interred at Ringgold Cemetery, Ringgold County, Iowa. T. J. IRELAND, husband of Mary E. (BROWN), was born on May 17, 1832, and died on March 1, 1901 with interment at Ringgold Cemetery.
