About Jane Hardesty

THE BLOOMFIELD NEWS, B Bloomfield, Greene County, Indiana, Friday April 7,1899, Volume XXIII, Number 19, Page 7, Column

Death again has taken from our midst a loved one. Mrs. Jane HARDESTY died at her home in Jackson Township, March 20, 1899. Her maiden name wasThompson. Was born in Pennsylvania, May 30, 1822. When She was five years old her parents moved to Ohio. At the age of fourteen she worked to make her own living. Her life was one that is not easily forgotten, as she spun flax, wove and did any work that came in her way.

In 1845 she was married to Joseph HARDESTY; they lived in Ohio until 1855,when they with their three small children moved in this State to live the remainder of their days. To this union was born ten children,six boys and four girls; three, Mrs. Phebe PAYNE, John and Thomas HARDESTY live in Missouri; one, Henry, lives in Kansas, and two,Noah and Mrs.. Clara WHITWORTH, live near Koleen. Three died in infancy and one,Mrs. Dorcas HORN, died in 1898. In 1861, when the Civil War broke out,her husband was one among the many who went to fight for his country and left his heart-broken wife to care for the family. When peace was declared he returned home and they lived happily together until his death in 1872.

Had Aunt Jane, as she was familiarly called, lived until this coming May,she would have been seventy-seven years of age. She had been a sufferer from lung trouble for years and on Monday, the 20th, death's cold hand was laid on her brow and her stay on earth was no more. Children, true is it that thou has wept death's conquest and may weep them yet again for thou O, Death, has taken from you a life dear to you as your own; nor dist thou interpose only to lay the sufferer asleep, for thou has taken to a home beyond this veil of tears the subject of these few lines. She had been a member of the Methodist church for many years, and said many times during her sickness she was only awaiting the Master's call. She suffered on until her spirit took its flight to the realms of eternal joy to meet her Savior, where suffering and sorrow never come, and there with the beautiful white robed angels stand singing to the lambforeverandsaying, dear children, I am waiting for thee. She leaves to mourn and follow her to the grave six children, a number of grandchildren, and a host of relatives and friends. Funeral services were conducted byRev.M.C. FULK at Mood's chapel, after which her earthly tabernacle was laid to rest in the grave to await the voice that saith, "I am the resurrection and the life." A. W.
