Aunt Nancy Eoff Dead
Mrs. Nancy C. Eoff, widow of the late George Eoff of Macleay, died at her home this morning at 6:20 o'clock, at the age of nearly eighty years, her next birthday falling on Sept. 20th. Deceased has been in delcining health for some time but enjoyed the use of her faculties and remained in full consciousness to the last hours of her life.
Aung Nancy is the last of the older people in her family with whom she crossed the plains in 1847, settling in the neighborhood where she has resided for 53 years. She was a niece of the late Capt. I. N. English who was prominent in this section for many years. Born in Kentucky, she was also a second cousin of the late Wm. H. English who ran for vice-president with Hancock, and was a great-aunt by marriage of the present Governor, T. T. Geer. Her husband died in 1890 and she leaves no children.
Mrs. Eoff was a life-long member of the Christian church, and her funeral will be conducted from the old home Thursday at 2 o'clock by Rev. J. W. Short, burial at the family burying ground.
Mrs. Eoff was a woman of fine social qualities, keeping alive many of the old customs and traditions of her youth. Even in her old age there were few young people who took much more interest in the affairs of the community, or were gayer at any gathering than Aunt Nancy, and her death will leave a vacant place no one can fill. She was universally beloved and respected by all who knew her.
