Ringgold Record, 1890

OBITUARY.

Hannah I. PUGH KENDALL died May 2nd, 1890, aged 62 years, 10 months and 9 days. She was born in Tennessee, June 23d, 1827. When about 10 years old she was brought west by her parents. They settled in Vermillion county, Ill., where she grew to womanhood.

Her parents were Quakers. She was raised and taught in that plain matter of fact way of acting and speaking so characteristic of that people. And although a Methodist in belief and practice, she always bore the marks of her early training. Often has the writer of this sketch met her both in her home and at church and always with that placid smile and gentle demeanor so characteristic of the women of the Quaker church, yet always ready and able to give evidence of the faith and hope within.

She was converted in her twentieth year and then united with the M. E. church and for over forty years lived an acceptable member of the same and died in the triumphs of a living faith.

In 1848 she was married to Ezra H. KENDALL and in 1868 they moved from Illinois to Ringgold county. They lived in Washington township and improved the farm afterward known as the McCLEARY place. For several years they lived on the TURNER farm in Jefferson township, again in Washington township and then on the MILLER farm in Grant township and shortly before her death moved again to Jefferson township, where on the 2d day of May at 10 a.m., she was seized with that terrible disease - apoplexy and lasted by six hours, when the spirit took its flight to the Heavenly home and an eternal abode.

She left a husband and seven children to mourn, but their loss is her eternal gain. She was not in the strictest sense a leader but this can be truthfully said of her: Though she had a large circle of friends and acquaintances, none knew her but to respect and love her and we believe she never had an enemy. She always obeyed the injuction of James and showed her faith by and with her works. She was neighborly, visited the sick, fed the hungry and administered consolation to the sorrowing. Living in peace with God and man and all who knew her can justly join in saying, "Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord." Her funeral on May 3d was very largely attended by relatives, friends and neighbors. The services were conducted by her pastor, Rev. W. C. SMITH of the M. E. church at Goshen, who delivered an able and appropriate discourse from John 16:20 "Your sorrow shall be turned into joy." After the services the remains were laid to rest in the Knowlton cemetery, there to await the resurrection of man. We have no doubt but one sister in Christ will be raised with the first and mortality will put on immortality and death be swallowed up in victory. --W.A.H.
