    Mrs. Matilda Martin Bricker, daughter of William and Mary Martin was born March 3, 1838 in Hunterdon County, New Jersey, departed this life January 29, 1920 at Beaumont, Ohio, aged 81 years 10 months and 26 days. The Martin family came to Athens County in 1853 residing at The Plains, Ohio for many years.
    She was united in marriage in 1859 to John H. Bricker of Athens County who passed from this life on March 13, 1904. She was the mother of eleven children, six girls and five boys, three of them having preceded her in death. Joseph and James when very young and Charlotte at the age of 16 years. There are left to mourn their loss, three sons; Owen of New Marshfield, William of The Plains; and Peter of Beaumont; five daughters Mrs. David North and Mrs. Thomas Dickerson of Chauncey, Mrs. George Shafer, Mrs. Myrtle Pidcock and Miss Alma Bricker of Beaumont; two sisters, Mrs. Arabell Matheny of The Plains and Mrs. Charretta Cornell of Kansas City, and one brother Henry Martin of Lodi, Madison County, Ohio, thirty three grandchildren, several great grandchildren and a host of friends.
    When fourteen years of age, Mrs. Bricker united with the M.E. church at Factory, later transferring her membership to The Plains M.E. church where she has been a member all her life. Until age hindered, she was active in the church work and even in her declining years she still continued her deeds of kindness in administering to sick and needy. Her many friends have known her for her many good qualities, and for the value of her smile and even disposition. Until the last few minutes of her life she was concerned and talked more about the welfare of others than of her own afflictions.
    For the past year she has made her home with her daughter Mrs. Myrtle Pidcock of Beaumont, where she has been tenderly cared for during her illness. About nine weeks ago she was confined to her bed after a light stroke of paralysis and since this time has been growing weaker till the end came. She knew everything and talked freely till the very last and met death with faith and hope of a rich reward.
