from an unknown newspaper JEMIMA KNOTTS LYNCH


On Sunday, the 28th ult., at Altizer, W.Va., the family of George Lynch went to church, leaving Mrs. Lynch at home in usual good health. When they returned Mrs. Lynch was missing from the house. A search was instituted and she was found up a run above the house in a wheat field dead. It is supposed she went up to the field to turn out some cattle that had broken into the field, when from the worry she either had an attack of heart failure or epilepsy. Circumstances indicate that death had been sudden. Her arms were folded and she lay with her head down the hill. She was buried in the family grave yard, near her home, on the following Tuesday.

Mrs. Jemima Lynch was born in Harrison county in 1827 and was 65 years old when she died.

She was a sister of Capt. A. Knotts, of Grantsville, and William and Rufus Knotts, of Minnora, W. Va. She leaves a husband and large family, all of whom are going to mourn her loss.

She was a member of the M. E. Church, South, holding her membership at Arnoldsburg, W. Va. Her sudden and unexpected death has thrown a gloom over the entire neighborhood. No one in this county was better known, and to be known was to be loved. While all feel her loss keenly, we know that our loss is her gain; and lay her to rest until the trump of God shall call the nations of earth to judgement. A. FRIEND
