Zachary - Elizabeth - 1891

Source: Crawfordsville Daily Journal Saturday, 18 July 1891

This morning at 8 o’clock Mrs. Elizabeth Zachery, aged 87 years, died at the home of her son-in-law, Jacob Broach, two miles south of the city. Mrs. Zachery has been failing for sometime and died of old age rather than from any distinct complaint. She was the widow of Elijah Zachery with whom she came here sixty-five years ago and whom she survived twenty-one years. She was the mother of seventeen children, of whom eight sons and one daughter still live.  The funeral will occur tomorrow afternoon at 3 o’clock at Smartsburg. Mrs. Zachery had been for many years previous to her death a constant member of the M. E. Church in whose faith she died after a life of usefulness and beauty. -s
