Her health was very poor most of the time after coming to Tallmadge and she was unable to mingle much in society, but was highly esteemed by all who knew her. She was buried near the old home, in Mogadore, the pastor of the M.E. Church at Tallmadge, (with which she was connected) preaching the funeral sermon.

Warren W. Hinman
Warren W. Hinman was born in New Hartford, Litchfield Co., Conn., May 7, 1805. When three years of age his father's family moved to Canton, Hartford County, where he labored on the farm with his father until he was 22 years of age. November 29, 1827, he was married to Miss Mercia Moses, and in July, 1830, they moved to Windham, Portage County, Ohio, where he united with the Congregational Church in 1831, and remained an active member during his residence in the place. He labored faithfully, not only for the spiritual, but also for the financial success of that church, and was one of four to purchase an organ, adding greatly to the pleasure of their worship. In 1845, he moved to Ravenna, and engaged in the mercantile business, obtaining prominance and success in both business and social circles. In 1864 he retired from active life, and removed to Tallmadge, securing a quiet, pleasant home in which to spend the sunset of life. In March 1877, his wife died, and September 5, 1877, he married Mrs. Lorain J. Laird, of Mesopotamis, Trumbull County, both uniting with the Tallmadge Congregational Church, Jan. 6, 1878. Mr. Hinman was a very active man up to the time of his death, which occurred July 14, 1880, having attained the ripe age of 75 years. In his family, his kind heart and happy temperament was exhibited to a remarkable degree. Having no children of his own; an adopted niece and her children enjoyed his generous hospitality, and, in turn, shared his home. Although he had been feeble for some time, he attended to his usual duties up to the time of his death. The last day of his life he was in Akron, and spent the evening in pleasant conversation with his wife at home, retiring at his usual hour. The summons came at midnight and found him ready-a quiet, peaceful closing to a long and useful life.
It is an occasion for gratitude when the aged Christian passes away without passing through a period of prolonged suffering and helplessness, to sleep on earth and wake in heaven.
Mr. Hinman's funeral services were attended at his residence, Friday afternoon, July 16, Rev. W. B. Marsh officiating. His remarks were very appropriate and comforting.
"Like the leaves of Autumn that fall to the ground, Like the dews of Summer without motion or sound. thus the physical mass goes down to the sod And the spirit within is draws homeward to God." ["Summit County Beacon", August 11, 1880 - DW - Sub by FoFG]
