Death of Mrs. Job RUSH.
Louisa J. McCLAIN was born in Coschocton county, Ohio, June 28, 1830. She came with her parents in 1858 to Ringgold
county, where she has since resided. She was married August 19, 1860, to Job RUSH and settled on a farm in Monroe
township where they have since lived with the exception of three years when Mr. RUSH was in partnership with H.
ROGErS in the furniture and undertaking business at Mt. Ayr. For over a year, Mrs. RUSH has been in poor health, the
cause of her fatal illness being heart trouble and general debility. She departed this life Thursday, May 21, 1896, at
11:25 a.m., aged 65 years, 11 months, three days.
The funeral services were conducted Friday afternoon at two
o'clock from the residence by Rev. A. HANCOX, the Methodist pastor at Tingley. Mrs. RUSH joined the Methodist church
in early life and had always been a consistent and energetic worker in religious circles. She leaves a husband and
three daughters, besides many relatives and friends, to mourn her death. They have the sympathy of many friends.
NOTE: Louisa was interred at Oliver Cemetery.
