|Mrs. Perry Troxell |
A brief item was sent last week announcing the death of Mrs. Perry Troxell which occurred on Friday, March 16. Her maiden name was Caroline Kuhn, daughter of John Kuhn, an early pioneer settler in this neighborhood and also a sister of the late well known Samuel Kuhn. Mrs. Troxell reached the advanced age of 78 years, being survived by her husband who is now aged about 84 years; also these children living: John M. of Clearfield; Mrs. Mary Mulhollen, Glasgow; Mrs. Margaret Mulhollen, Glasgow; Samuel of Van Ormer; Jacob of Glasgow and Lemuel, hotel proprietor of Blandburg. Besides these, the deceased wife and mother was the grandmother of 42 grand children and along this line of posterity she left behind her 33 great grandchildren. The funeral at Pleasant Hill cemetery was largely attended by relatives, neighbors, friends and citizens in general, by all of whom the deceased was held in high esteem. Services were conducted by Rev. Baugh of the Lutheran Church and Rev. Mr. Seible of the Baptist Church. Mr. Perry Troxell, the husband, still resides on the old homestead where he was born in 1822 and where his father, John Troxell, located not long after the redskins had been driven from the dense wilderness of pine, hemlock and laurel, at one time prevailing in this part of the Red Man's hunting grounds.
