Mrs. Martha Logan, aged 95 years and two months, departed this life Sunday evening, April 5, at the home of D. W. Ronk, 2 miles southeast of New Ross. Martha Voris was born in Ohio in 1801. While she was yet a child she moved with her parents to Rush county, this State. She was married to Patrick Logan in 1820. They moved to Marshall county and lived there until 1830 and then came to Montgomery county, where she resided until death, her husband dying several years ago. The deceased was the mother of twelve children, two of whom survive her, Mrs. D. W. Ronk, of New Ross and Mrs. Martha Morris, of New Brunswick, Ind. She was an active member of the Newlight church, an exemplary Christian and a model of patience. In 1892 she fell and sustained injuries so that she has been confined to her bed ever since. She retained her mental faculties until the last. The funeral was preached at the Dunkard church Monday by Rev. L. E. Murray, of Ladoga. Interment at the Yelton cemetery. - transcribed by kbz
