Obituary. Mrs. Mary E. Hetrick departed this life June 11, 1892. She was born July 27, 1860 in Warren County, Ind. she was 31 years, 10 months, and 14 days old. She was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George Pitman. When a child, she with her parents moved in 1866 to the state of Iowa. Becoming dissatisfied with the state, they moved back to Warren County, where they bought a small farm near Pine Creek in 1868. Soon after this, the family was broken up and she was thus thrown among strangers. In 1869 Mr. Solomon Dick took her as his own child, and she remained with the family until 1872, when Mr. Dick died, and she then went to work out. She stayed with Mrs. Dan Leak. From exposure she contracted catarrh in the head and from that time on she never was strong. She went to P. W. Schoonover's from there. She also worked for Mrs. John Fox for two years. In 1874 she united with the church at Free Hall under the Rev. Wilmer's preaching, and she remained a member for two years, but from the remarks made by the members of the church about one another, she said she could live a member without going to church, and she did. When a girl she was loved by all who knew her. She was married to Mr. E. Hetrick in October 1880, when she and her husband labored very hard to get a livelihood. Three children blessed this union, William, Quincy and Johnny, all of which are living. She was true to her husband, a kind and affectionate wife, and a kind and loving mother.
