   The death of Granville Moody ARY, of Paintersville, son of John ARY,
last week was a sad affair. It seems from the best we can learn, that he
and a brother-in-law named Thomas, had been scuffling some ten or twelve
days before, and that Thomas becoming tired wanted to quit, and so told
young ARY, but the latter feeling in the mood, kept on. Finally Thomas
told ARY that if he didn't stop that he would stick a knife into him. ARY
replied sportingly; " Oh, you wouldn't do that," and kept on plaguing
Thomas. Thomas had become angered and did stick a knife into ARY'S knee. 
This of course ended the matter for the time being, but it was a sad
affair for ARY. For some reason unknown to us, poisoning of the blood
ensued, and ARY after suffering greatly, died from the wound. He was aged
18 years. The funeral took place on Sabbath last, the burial being at
Woodland Cemetery, this city.

Hannah Bales was born in Virginia April 9, 1815 and died at her late home April 5, 1901. Had she lived until Tuesday, she would have been 86 years
old. She came to Ohio with her parents and settled in Greene County on the farm now owned by Mr. E. R. Hagler when she was 18 years old and has
lived in this community ever since.  She was married to Mr. Elisha Bales November 1857 who preceded her to the spirit world 29 years ago.
She was a hard working woman doing all kinds of farm work. It was a very common thing to see her building fence, pulling or cutting weeds. She
loved to work and did this kind of work of her own choice. She united with the M. E. Church Feb. 10, 1875. Rev. Jacob C. Smith, a local
preacher, was holding meetings near where the Ms. Tabor School House now stands, and Hannah Bales, with many others, joined the church.
All who knew her to be a true, loyal, and humble follower of Jesus.  Of her father's family, she leaves three brothers; Henry, Morton, and
Philip Cultice of Indiana and one sister, Mrs. Sarah Hodge of Topeka, Kan.   Having lived at her late home 44 years, she was known by very many, and
among these she leaves a host of friends, besides kindred relations.   She came to the end of life trusting her all in Jesus, and she found Him,
the truest of all Friends. He was with her to the end and then called her to be with him forever.
Funeral Easter Sabbath afternoon. Burial in Woodland Cemetery. Xenia, Oh.

Mary NEFF, daughter of John and Nancy HICKORY NEFF, was born 
September 25, 1806 in Moorefield, Grant County., Virginia, died January 22, 1897,
being 90 years, 3 months, and 28 days old.
   Soon after her birth her parents moved to Pendleton, Pendleton Co.,
West Virginia, where during the war of 1812 she remembered the soldiers
going to the war. About 1814 when 8 years of age, her parents concluded
to go West, they went in wagons as far as Coshecton, Ohio, where they
remained about 3 years. While living there she remembered seeing the
Indians coming to town horseback with hams and venison hung across the
horses shoulders. The squaws carrying their papooses upon their backs.
Muster day was a great event in Coshocton in those days. 
   About 1817 her parents concluded  to go farther west. They next
located  in Newton Tp. Muskingum river Co., along the Muskingum river
where her father made barrels for the salt works. It is while living here
that she met and married James TURNER, a boat Captain running on the
rivers from Zanesville, Ohio to New Orleans.
   After their marriage they began housekeeping near Mr. TURNERS mothers
in Newton Township. Having quit the river he began farming. In those days
farming was a difficult task. Forest had to be cleared and then new
grounds had to be tilled. While hauling logs with their two horses, a log
slipped off the wagon rolling onto one of the horses and killing it. This
was at that time a heavy loss. They were compelled to borrow another
horse until they were able to purchase one. Wolves, panthers, bears, etc.
were numerous in those days, and to raise stock was a risky business. For
you knew not how soon wild animals would break in among the stock and
kill a number of them. At times it wasn't  safe to go out after night for
fear of being killed by a panther. By their  perseverence they begun to
accumulate some property. Their main crop was tobacco, of which they
raised a great deal. In those days they used dry house to dry the
tobacco. One season ater they had their crop in the dry house and almost
ready to take down, the house caught fire, and everything was destroyed.
The loss was very discouraging.
   They attended the markets in Zanesville and would have to start about
midnight in order to get there in time. There being no bridges scarcely,
it was a dangerous trip when the waters were high.
   In 1851 they moved to Bruskcreek Township where they purchased a farm
and built a large house. They had a sugar camp from which they derived a
revenue, also run a cane mill and sawmill on Brush Creek. The Zanesville
markets were still attended. Their family of 10 children had by this time
become large enough to assist in farming etc. In the fall of 1870 they
concluded to go farther West where the country was more level. They sold
their farm and had a sale and moved to Roseville ( Perry County side )
and in the Spring moved to Breman, Fairfield Co., where they looked for a
farm, but not liking the country, moved to Springfield in the Fall where
they looked up a farm. In April 1872, they purchased and moved to the
farm here, where Mr. TURNER died July 11, 1877, at the age of 74 years.
Mrs. TURNER had 4 sisters, Mrs. Dinah RAMEY, Mrs. Sarah TURNER,
(deceased) Mrs. Harriet WORSTALL, and Mrs. Elizabeth MANN, the latter two
are still living. Mrs. WORSTALL aged 88, residing in Zanesville, O., and
Mrs. MANN aged 81, living in Leavenworth, Kansas. She had 2 brothers,
Aron and Jacklin, both deceased. The formers decendants reside in
Cincinnati, O., and the latters in Zanesville. She also had 2 half
sisters and 3 half brothers, the families of 2 step mothers. 
   Two sons, J.M. TURNER, of Macon, Missouri, and A.M. TURNER, of this
place, and one daughter, Mrs. Henry PLETCHER, of Roseville, O., survive
her, also 10 grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren.
   She became a member of the M.E. Church when a young girl. After
marriage she transfered her letter to the Presbyterian church, having
followed the teachings of her master for nearly a century. She was a
member of the Presbyterian church in YellowSprings. She had been unable
to attend services for several years owing to her age and infirmities,
but she found great delight and consolation in her Bible reading. Besides
reading the Bible she read church literature and also secular matter. She
was always an interested reader of The News. 
   Since her husbands death she has resided with her son, Milton on the
farm except a year or two  spent with her daughter at Roseville. Her
death was due to an eparterial growth causing paralisis of the muscles of
degulutition. During her sickness which was first noticed on her 90th
birthday, she frequently gave expression to the following viz: Blessed
father, Blessed son, and Blessed holy spirit."  She seemed glad to know
that she would soon join her friends on the other shore.
   The funeral services were conducted at the house on Monday January 25,
by Rev. B.F. LUTHER, of YellowSprings.
   Interment was in the beautiful Ferncliff Cemetery, Springfield, Ohio.
