Rachel Gray (1826-1874)

Kokomo Saturday Evening Tribune, 12 December 1874

Death of Rachel GRAY -- The deceased was the wife of Mr. Rossiter GRAY of Liberty Township, a highly-respected citizen who was one of the first settlers of this part of Indiana. She was also a sister of Mr. I. [O.?] WARE, the acting Auditor of the county. She was born July 14, 1826 and was married to Mr. GRAY on April 8th, 1843. She died of consumption Dec. 5th. The family has resided in this county for 25 years.
The deceased was a member of the United Brethren Church and was a Christian woman. She lived to see several of her children buried. She leaves, besides her husband, two children, a daughter about 17 and a son about 14 years old. The family, bereaved as they are, have the full sympathy of all acquaintances. A good wife, a devoted mother, has gone to the Shining Shore and yet only a little while, the two portions of the family, now separated, will be reunited forever. After all, what a very short time those who live longest remain here. Death is just a short distance from any of us and is getting nearer every day, every hour, every minute--never receding.
