Mrs. Phoebe Pritchett
This pioneer lady resident of the northern part of this county, died at her home near Columbiana Sunday (January 10, 1904). Her funeral was largely attended Tuesday, from her home on R. F. D. between Columbiana and Mosk. Mrs. Pritchett come of good old pioneer Quaker stock and she was 84 years of age. Her parents were among the earliest pioneer settlers in this county in the Quaker settlement. They came overland in wagons, with the Ogdens and other well known Quakers from Philadelphia, Pa. Mrs. Pritchett was a kind, grand old woman whom everybody loved who shared her acquaintance. She is probably one of the last of those good old Quaker families of olden days and with her passes a link connecting the present generation with that of the early days in the last century. She leaves two children, Mr. Rueben Pritchett, of 99 West Dry street, Salem, and Miss Mary A. Pritchett, who lived on the old home farm with her mother.
Mrs. Pritchett lived to a good old age, and was in enjoyment of quite a good health when visited by Dr. C. B. Ogden and his wife last October. It was the doctor’s pleasure and custom to drive over to her home almost every summer and spend a day and night with this old friend and neighbor of his father in his boyhood days. The news of Mrs. Pritchett’s death did no reach him until yesterday.
