ILIFF---On the 23d day of April, 1880, at Winchester, near Columbus, Ohio, Mrs. Margaret Iliff, of pneumonia, aged 83.
The deceased was born in Baltimore, Md., March 10th, 1797. She was married while a resident of that city to a sea captain by the name of Evans, who died a few years after their marriage.
After the death of Mr. Evans, she, in company with her father's family emigrated to Ohio, about the year 1820, and settled in Perry county, near New Lexington. Soon after her removal to Ohio she was married a second time to Henry Shaner.
About the year 1839 she left Perry County with her husband, and removed into Gallia county, locating in Morgan township, near the village of Vinton.
Five children were born to them during this marriage, Adam, Joshua, Harriet, Eli G. and Ruth E.
In 1841 her second husband died, when she returned to Perry county and was a third time married to John Iliff, with whom she lived some twelve or fifteen years, when she was again left a widow for the third time. The remainder of her life was spent living among her children. She died at the residence of one of her children in Winchester, Franklin county, Ohio.
Thus has passed from earth another one of the good and faithful mothers of Isreal, to the memory of whom there can never be too much of honor and tribute paid. She lived a true and faithful member of the Methodist Church for more than fifty years. She was a woman of rare intelligence and saving practical common sense. Let us not be untrue to the memory of such grand old pioneer mothers, for to them is due a debt that all the wealth of all the human family can not pay. E. G. S.
