Source: Crawfordsville Journal Review- 29 ? Jan., 1904

Mary A. Crutchfield was born near Russellville, Putman County, Sept. 10, 1830. Departed this life Jan. 26, 1904. Aged 73 years, 4 months and 16 days. She had four brothers and six sisters, making a family of eleven, all of whom have passed away and joined the great majority. She was married to Hiram N. Davis, June 30, 1850 in Boone County, Indiana. Ten children blessed this union, nine living and one dying in infancy. The living are: Charles R. of Lebanon, William J. of Ladoga, Mary E. Engle of Clermont, Hezekiah H. of Ladoga, Eliza A. Tener of Pleasantville, Iowa, James S. of Ladoga, George W. of Poplar Bluff, Missouri, Clara E. Mount and John M. of Ladoga, Maggie N. died in Feb, 1864, aged 15 months. The subject of this sketch united with the Methodist Church at Russellville in her girlhood and remained a faithful member until her death. She was naturally of a cheerful disposition. Always ready to try to relieve suffering and a cheerful work for those in distress. The last few years of her life she was a great sufferer but she bore it with fortitude and patience until death came to her relief. She was a true and devoted wife, a loving and indulgent mother and God will surely bless her of her devotion to her family and friends. The funeral service was held at the residence last Saturday afternoon, conducted by Rev. H. C. Weston, with music by the Methodist Church choir. Interment at Wesley Chapel.  Thanks muches Janeen P
