DIED . In Green township, February 10th, 1875, Margaret Liddy, aged 81 years.
LIDDY---Mrs. Margaret Liddy was born in Ireland, and emigrated with her husband and family to the United States, and settled in Jefferson county, Ohio, July 10th, 1836; and in 1848 moved to Gallia county, Ohio,where in the providence of God she was left a widow, her husband preceding her to the better land. Early in life she joined the Methodist Church, and lived a consistent member sixty-seven years, when God called her to that mansion which he had prepared for her. Her early home was the home of the Itinerant Minister. Often have they been fed at her table and warmed at her fireside. Her house was a regular preaching place for over twenty years. Her doors were ever open for prayer and class-meetings, and many souls have been converted under her roof. At the age of fourteen she sought and obtained that grace which sustained her through a long and eventful life, and was ever willing to acknowledge her perfect faith in the protecting care of her Heavenly Father--bowing in meek submission to His will--and in the closing hours of her earthly pilgrimage, she said to her friends who were by her dying couch: "Thanks be to God who giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ;" and though she suffered affliction long, she was never heard to murmur; and in the daily trials and perplexities of life she was enabled to cast her burden on the Lord, feeling that He would sustain her, and when her end came she had carefully and fully prepared for the change. Thus passed away a faithful wife, and a loving mother; aged eighty-one years. J. L . [Gallipolis Journal, (Gallipolis, Oh.) Feb 18 & March 04, 1875 - Sub. By Kathy McDaniel]
