Mary Ann Huff Hinds
Mrs. Mary Ann Hinds died Friday, July 26, 1918 at the home of her daughter, Flora D. Hinds of Canton, at the age of 85 years.
Grandmother Hinds, as she was familiarly known was a remarkably well preserved woman, and enjoyed excellent health until about a year ago when she was taken seriously ill. She apparently recovered and was able to go about again as usual. Last February she went to Canton to visit with her daughters, Flora Hinds and Mrs. Walter, and in May was taken back down sick in bed. The family noted her gradual loss of vitality and realized the end was near.
Since the death of her husband, October 10, 1908, Mrs. Hinds has made her home with her daughter, Mrs. D.C. Whiting of this city, making extended visits from time to time with the other children.
Mary Ann Huff was born in Belmont County, OH, October 3, 1833. After her marriage to Westley Hinds, they resided for some time in the Rodney Run neighborhood.
Later, they removed to Newcomerstown, [OH] then to Iowa, where they resided over a year, then returned to this neighborhood. Mrs. Hinds was the mother of nine children, six of whom survive. They are: Mrs. R. H. Phillips, of Oreana, IL, Ezra Hinds of Portland, OR, Mrs. H. P. Walter and Flora D. Hinds of Canton, OH, Elisha Hinds and Mrs. D. C. Whiting of Newcomerstown, OH.
Mrs. Hinds united with the U. B. church at Everals many years ago. The body was brought back to this city Saturday Night in the D. L. Lyrick's auto hearse. Funeral services were held on Sunday at the Whiting home on Main Street, conducted by Rev. M. L. Oliver. Burial was made beside the grave of her husband in the local cemetery.
