CALL OF THE DEATH ANGEL Comes Unexpectedly to the Home of Samuel C. Moore Early Monday Morning
His Wife Claimed As Victim
Life Goes Out Just as the Morning Sun Is Rising Over the Eastern Horizon
Another noble woman, a life-long resident of Hancock county, has been called to her final reward, without warning and the surviving members of the household mourn the loss that deprives them of a loving wife and mother. Mrs. Samuel C. Moore, of 620 Walnut street, is dead. She passed away at half-past six o'clock, Monday morning, just as the sun was peeping over the Eastern horizon, and her death was as sudden as it was unexpected, as she had been in her usual health up to the time she was discovered in a dying condition. Apoplexy is given as the cause of the sudden ending of her life. The news of her demise will prove a great shock to her many friends throughout the county, and those residing elsewhere, for she was widely known and universally respected.
Mrs. Moore, who was the wife of Ex-Postmaster Samuel C. Moore, while not in robust health during the past few years, had not been confined to her home or bed, but was in her usual health, retiring Sunday evening at the customary hour, and no member of the family had any reason to suspect that she would never greet them again in this world.
At half-past six o'clock her daughter, Miss Helen, went to her room to call her for breakfast. On speaking to her mother, the latter lifted her head a little, turned partly over, gasped and was dead. The terrified young lady at once gave the alarm, and a physician was summoned. Sympathetic neighbors also came an did what they could to assist the stricken ones and to alleviate the force of the sudden and awful blow.
Mrs. Moore was born in Liberty township, Hancock county, the daughter of John and Mary Jane Povenmire. She first saw the light of day February 23, 1851, and at the time of her death was aged 58 years, 9 months and 6 days. She was married September 6, 1874, to Samuel C. Moore, being his second wife, and to their union was born seven children, two of whom survive, William J. and Helen. Those who preceded their mother to the other shore are Myrtle, Mamie, Alice, Bessie and Ethel, all of whom were educated in the schools of Findlay. She also leaves to mourn their loss, two sisters and a brother, Mrs. Charles Steen; Miss Anna Povenmire, and James P. Povenmire. With the exception of two years in Kansas, she lived in Hancock county all her life.
She was a woman of loving disposition, having very many warm friends, who shared the many deep sorrows through which she passed during the past few years in the loss of her daughters, one after another, in quick succession. She was an earnest member of the Woman's Relife
(sic) Corps, and also a member of the Howard M. E. church. To her husband and family the warmest sympathy of the public is extended, in this hour of grief and desolation. [THE MORNING REPUBLICAN, Findlay, Oh., Tue., 30 Nov. 1909 - Sub. by William Ream]
