THE SMITHVILLE NEWS. VOL. IV. SMITHVILLE, INDIANA, FRIDAY, SEPT, 22, 1911 No, 5 DOUBLE FUNERAL MRS. ELLEN E. ROSS. It has been many years since it has been necessary to have two funerals here in one day. The first one was that of Mrs. Ellen E. Ross, wife of Wilson Ross, the blacksmith, who died early Tuesday morning at the Bloornington Hospitl, where she was taken a little over a week before for an operation for rupture. There was little hopes for her from the start as it seemed that gangrene had already set in. During her con ement she suffered very little and was rational up to the last. The nurses said she was the best patient they had ever seen, as she never complained and always looked on the bright side of everything and held out until the very last, that she would get well. Sunday she made a change in her talk and about an hour before the end the nurse asked her if she realized that she could not get well and if she was ready to die. She closed her eyes for a few minutes, then her countenance brightened up and she said "Now at is alright and I am ready to go", she then gained strength and made a lengthy prayer after which she expired in a few minutes. Mrs Ross as far as we know, she never had a single enemy in this community and was always a hard working woman. Mrs. Ross' maiden name was Payne, and in 1875 she was married to Wilson Ross, to their union four children were born two of which are now living, Claudia Ross and Mrs Alma Carter. She leaves one brother, Morton Payne, and five sisters, Mrs Samuel Cathcart, Mrs. John Adams, Miss Anne Payne, of this county Mrs. John Moore of Greeley Col and Mrs. Racheal Dearmin of Nora Springs, Iowa.
