    Notes 
    • [Related - Crumpler Name - jjones116@aol.com.ftw]

      The following obituary appeared in a Wood County newspaper at the death of Mary Crumpler:
      We have said goodbye to an old and dear friend, a kindly personality, an unselfish soul--Mrs. Mary Crumpler. This is a world of goodbyes. Every morning bids good-bye to the night from which it springs. Every evening bids good-bye to the sunlight. Every day some ship sets sail, every day a friend departs. "I cannot say and I will not say that she is dead--she is just away With a cherry smile and a wave of the hand She has wandered into an unknown land. And you you, who the wildest yearn For the old time step and the glad return, Think of Her faring on, as dear In the loves of the there as the love of her. Think of her still the same, I say; She is not dead--she is just away."
      I am happy in the thought that Mrs. Mary Crumpler was my friend--our friend. Since I could remember I have known her--her family being our nearest neighbors for eight years. As a wife and mother she lived the scripture "She looketh well to the ways of her household and eateth not but that she could "stretcheth out her hand to the poor; yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy." A few brief days since she slipped out of the night to enter a fairer day. The gates of the Celestial City must have swung wide, that she might have an abundant entrance to meet one who knew her and one whom she knew and loved. Today her body rests in the silent city of the dead, there to mingle with the earth of which it was a part. Today she walks " in the fields of asphodel beside the timeless sea". I hope she knows we have not forgotten her, and that as we too willingly offer this poor tribute of words, the fragrant memory of her pure, novel life shall rest upon us like a benedicition. Her family of honorable sons and daughters bear testimony to her noble example and Christian life. To these sons and daughters who survive her I would say: "They are waiting for us over there, The young, the beautiful, and fair Who left us, of, so long ago, Lonely and hurt on earth below, Are Waiting bravely, never fear, Until our faces shall appear. Though now you mourn, who stay behind, How sad 'twould be, to leave and find Upon that distant, other shore No loved ones who had gone before-- The gates of heaven to enter through With not one there to welcome you. As now when some long journey ends And we're received by smiling friends Who've watched and waited for the train, So shall they welcome us again; The young, the beautiful, and fair Will be waiting for us there." A Friend.

      Mary's tombstone inscription reads: "In life She exhibited all the Graces of a Christian, in death her spirit returned to God who gave it."
