Mention was made last week of the death of Mrs. Place, which occurred at her home in the north end of the village on Monday evening June 2d. Mrs. Place was our oldest inhabitant and had retained her health and faculties in a remarkable manner up to her last sickness, which dated from about the first of the present year. She was born in the town of McDonough, this county, in 1820, and was the daughter of Friend Hayes. She had reached the age of 93 years, 3 months, and 3 days. All the mighty strides that marked a new era in the world’s history, in discoveries, inventions and achievements in every branch of human progress that differentiated the 19th century from all that went before it, was spanned by her single life. She was married to Foster C. Place on January 19, 1843 and most of her life since was spent on the farm where she died. During all these years, in themselves an ordinary life time, she exemplified the merits of a nature essentially home loving and domestic in its tastes and aspirations, enjoying the esteem of three generations and preserving her interest in passing events and the dram of life going on around her until the last. Deceased leaves surviving her one son and two daughters, H.F Place of this village and Misses Vinnie and Emma Place who resided with their mother and made her declining years the ideal transition from a long life of activity to its close in age and infirmity, that is one of the fine things to which too much honor cannot be shown. One son, Leander C. Place, died in 1898. The funeral was held from the house on Thursday at 1:30 pm, Rev. E.B. Singer of the Methodist Church, of which Mrs. Place was a life long member, officiating. Choosing for the base of his remarks the 16th verse of the 91st Psalm, “With long life will I satisfy him and show him my salvation.” There were many fine floral contributions and a large attendance of relatives and friends. Burial was in Evergreen Cemetery White Store by the side of her husband who died in 1886.
