Jane Heartgrove Dickson Curry 1816-1884
Died, at her home in Ash Grove, Sunday, 6 Apr 1884 Mrs. Jane Curry in the 78th year of her age. Deceased had been sick a long time. The immediate cause of death was a tumor in the side. "Old Aunt Jane" as she was familiarly called was one of the oldest settlers and was respected and loved by all who knew her, for her kind motherly ways. All through her long life she was ever kind and sympathetic with her neighbors. She was always social and pleasant. She united with the Christian church some years ago and lived a devoted Christian life. The funeral took place Monday at the Grove church Elder Harrold officiating. Mother Curry leaves several children, among whom is Mrs. J. T. Poe of our city, numerous grandchildren and other relatives and friends to mourn her departure. It is truly said "the Young may die, the old must die." In either case it is sad to part with loved ones; but it is pleasant to reflect upon the well spent life of those who live to a good old age. We should all try to imitate their life of virtue, that it may be said of us, whether we live long or die young, that we have not lived entirely in vain. - Windsor Gazette - 10 Apr 1884...
