Sunday's Obituary: Mary H. Hoy

Cincinnati Daily Gazette (Ohio)
January 6, 1866

In Newport, Ky., at the residence of her son-in-law, Mr. O. P. Furslow, No. 138 Madison street, Mrs. Mary H. Hoy, widow of the late John Hoy of Gallipolis, O., in the 70th year of her age.

Funeral services at 2 1/2 o'clock P.M., Saturday 6th inst.  Friends of the family are respectfully invited to attend.

[Gallipolis, O., Charleston, W.Va., Rochester, N.Y., Jacksonviklle, Ill., papers please copy.]

Mrs. Hoy was a native of Prince William Co., Va., where she married, and removed thence to Ohio in 1831.  She was for many years a very great sufferer, and during the last two months of her life, her painful illness was borne with heroic fortitude and Christian patience.  She was for many years a member of the Methodist Church, and departed this life in the sure hope of that immortality which was purchased by her Savior.

She leaves a large family to mourn her loss.
