  • Obituary, 11 DEC 1893: "'AN AGED RESIDENT'S DEATH: Mrs Martha McGlathery Passes Away at a Ripe Old Age.'

    Saturday morning at ten minutes after 7 o'clock Mrs. Martha McGlathery, one of the oldest and most highly esteemed residents of this city, died of the accumulated infirmities incident to old age at her home, 1409 Eighth avenue. The deceased was born in Pleasant Valley, near the city, and was aged 82 years, 4 months and 26 days. She afterward resided on the farm at what is now known as the East End of the city, until twenty years ago, when she removed with her husband to the home where all the remainder of her days were passed.

    Her maiden name was Hamilton and her marriage to Allan McGlathery, whose death occurred August 1. 1890, took place in this city December 23, 1834. To this union seven children were born, and six of these survive to mourn the loss of one who was always a kind and loving parent, a shining example of Christian living, one in whose death the beacon to the better life has only been transferred from time to eternity. The surviving children are: Samuel McGlathery, of Springfield, West Virginia; Annie, wife of G. T. Hamilton; Fannie, wife of T. C. Parsons; Sallie, wife of John Black; Misses Senie and Belle V. McGlathery, the latter two at home and all but the one son, of this city. She also leaves two sisters, who reside in Pittsburgh.

    Mrs. McGlathery was a life-long and consistent member of the Presbyterian church, having been connected with the congregation at Hollidaysburg before the First church was organized in this city. Her life was a continual living of the faith she professed and her death was a triumph.

    Funeral services will be conducted at the family home, 1409 Eighth avenue, this afternoon at 2.30 o'clock by Rev. J. W. Bain, pastor of the First Presbyterian church, after which the interment will be made in Fairview Cemetery." -
