About Mary "Polly" Ann Lessing (Townsend)

Lessing, Mary (Townsend)

Died at the family residence in this City, Saturday noon, Dec. 1st., Mrs. Mary Lessing at the ripe old age of 80 years, 1 month and 20 days. She had been in declining health for years, and for the past few months had been confined to her bed. Although her death was sudden it was not unexpected. Aunt Polly, as she was familiarly known, was born in Florida and came to Texas with her parents, Asa and Rebecca Townsend, when quite small and has been a resident of Columbus and vicinity for the past 74 years. She united with the Methodist church in childhood, and died in the triumph of the living faith. Being one of the oldest residents of the County, she remembered Columbus when it consisted of two log cabins, which stood near where the water tower now stands, and its principal trade was with the Indians. She had 14 brothers and sisters, 12 of whom grew to maturity in this locality, but all save one, Mrs. J. M. Cummins, of Seymour, Texas have preceded her to the great beyond. She is survived by her husband, two sons and one daughter, 20 grandchildren and 17 great grand children.

Colorado County Citizen, December 5, 1912
