A little two-year-old daughter of Mrs. Moody Harvey of Attica drank water containing fly-poison last Thursday. She died after several hours of horrible suffering. On last Sunday occurred the death of one of whom all who knew her wept. It was that of Grandma Eberly. Grandma was born in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, August 22, 1817. Her maiden name was Mary Work. In 1838 she was married to David B. Eberly, and to this union eleven children were born, seven of whom are still among the living. At the age of 15 years, Mary joined the Methodist Episcopal Church and for these sixty-five years has lived a pure Christian life. Grandma, as we love to call her, with her companion has lived in this place for a long number of years. There are few people in the community who have not made her acquaintance, and all have loved her. So pure was her life, so inviting her character. What a devoted wife, what a loving mother, and though dark were some of her days, yet gentleness reigned supreme. We cannot lift too high such a character as this; it is an example for all. But has she died? Not so. There is no death! Rev. Broomfield preached the funeral discourse and the remains were laid to rest in the Pine Village Cemetery on Tuesday. Of the twenty-seven grandchildren, Clint, Drummond, Edward, George, Bruce, Earl and Clint Eberly were the pallbearers.
