Clearfield Enterprise
Clearfield, Iowa
September 27, 1923

OBITUARY ~ MARY ELLEN (SHARP) McLAURY

Mary Ellen Sharp was born April 20, 1845, near Lewiston, Illinois. She was married to George Cobine McLaury in 1862 and resided in Illinois for several years, then moved to Ringgold county, Iowa, and then to Taylor county where they lived for several years, and in 1892 moved to Clearfield where she resided ever since. Her husband proceeded her in death 15 years ago.

To this union were born seven children of which four remain as follows, Mrs. E F Wilson, of Kansas City; J T of Clearfield; G E of Bedford; and Frank Roy of Canada. There are also 16 grandchildren and 7 great grandchildren.

She became a Christian when a child and in 1887 became a member of the Baptist Church, being a charter member, and lived a consistent Christian life. Although a great sufferer for years and unable to attend services at all times, her heart was with the Christian people. She will be greatly missed by her relatives, friends, and neighbors, for she was always a friend in time of need and sorrow.

The services were conducted by Rev. Osborn, her former Pastor in the Baptist church. Interment took place in Clearfield Cemetery, Sunday afternoon September 23.
