Mrs. Nancy Pugh.

Death last night visited the home of one of the oldest residents of Hancock county and claimed as its victim Mrs. Nancy Pugh, a woman known throughout the county. She had been suffering from the infirmities incident to advanced age and had been ill for some time. Ninety – two years ago, almost a century when it comes to years, Mrs. Pugh was born. Her maiden name was Mrs. Nancy Allison and the family is today one of the largest in the state of West Virginia. To the union in marriage with D. A. Pugh, the following children were born and are living: Hon. Peter A. Pugh, R. W. Pugh, both of Chester; Mr. R. Hooker Brown, of Moscow; Mrs. George Spivey of Allegheny, Pa. Mrs. Pugh is survived also by a sister, Mrs. Polly Huff, near Asbury. The Pugh homestead near Gas Valley is the gathering point for a host of relatives and friends today and preparations are being made for the funeral. Services will be held from the Fairview Presbyterian church Wednesday morning at 10 o’clock. The daughters arrived this afternoon. The remains will be laid to rest in Fairview cemetery, in the same church yard where rests the husband of the deceased, who died 12 years ago, and also her father, Jonathan Allison, who lived to the age of 98 years.


Obit has a mistake. Should be ‘Mrs.’ R. Hooker Brown.
