AGED MOTHER CALLED

The tired and worn heart of Aunt Martha Hall, aged ninety, of Ermine, ceased to beat a few days ago and like a flying cloud her life passed to Him who gave it. She was a precious mother in Israel. She was the widow of the late Thomas Hall who preceeded her to the beyond some years ago. This couple was married in 1859 and to the union was born thirteen children all of whom are still living except two sons, Melvin and Thomas Jr. who passed from life some years ago. The living sons are William, John, George, and Sam all residing near Ermine. The daughters are Mrs. K. S. Potter, Mrs. W. H. Potter, Mrs. S. N. Bentley, Mrs. W. H. Reynolds, Mrs Elijah Worrix, Mrs. Melvin Potter and Mrs. Zack Bentley.

Mrs. Hall was born in North Carolina in 1839 and moved with her parents to this county about the year 1850 and settled near Payne Gap. After her marriage she settled with her husband on the spot where the city of Fleming now stands and lived there till about twenty five years ago when they moved to Ermine where she spent the remainder of her life.

Mrs. Hall was a high class Christian lady admired and loved by all who knew her. She was of the old type of precious mothers who helped to build and make our country. She has left a precious heritage and a shining light for her children and friends. We extend sympathies.

(Mrs.) Sallie Hall,
Ermine, Ky
