COY, Catherine, Obituary

Mrs. Catherine Coy, for many years an inestimable lady of Gallia county, was born in Dalphin county, Pennsylvania, January 9th, 1770, and died November 11, 1861, in her 92nd year. She was awakened by the spirit of God in 1808, under the labors of the Revs. Lee and Pearsons, two early Methodist preachers in Pennsylvania. After seeking God with prayers and tears a short time she did trust in the Redeemer for the blessing she so much desired. Feeling that her sins were pardoned, she at once commenced laboring for the salvation of others. She was a faithful and devoted member of the M. E.Church for 53 years. When the messenger called she was ready and waiting, smiling at death as though the best friend had come. May the writer and reader be as fully prepared. M. S. VAUGHN.

HATTON, Charlotte, Obituary

DIED---In Cheshire, March 3d, 1862, Charlotte Hatton, the adopted daughter of Caroline Gates and Hubbard Vangilder, aged 23 years.
