SAVAGE, Mary Ann - 1892

Source: Crawfordsville Daily Journal 5 July 1892 p 3

Word has brought to Miss Jennie Cade this morning that her mother, Mrs. Mary Ann Savage, had dropped death at the home of her daughter-in-law, Mrs. Marshall Cade near Sugar Grove. Mrs. Savage spent the Fourth at Meharry’s Grove and was never in better health. She met W.E. Gebhart, of Gebhart’s Bazaar and told him to tell Jennie that she would be home today. But how sadly mistaken was she, for shortly after 8 o’clock while busy getting ready to leave she suddenly complained of a pain in her arm.  She lay down on a sofa and in a few minutes expired. Rheumatism of the heart was the cause. Mrs. Savage was 75 years old, one of the oldest settlers of Indiana and a most worthy old lady. Five children survive her, Miss Jennie, who works for Mrs. Cresse, the milliner, a daughter in Springfield, Ills; Benton Cade of Covington, and Stephen Cade of Illinois and a brother near Newtown. The funeral will probably occur there.
