Obituary Of Eliza Ann (Porter) McFadyen

From the Reveille Echo [Ohio], published August 11, 1921:

Three days following the celebration of her seventy-first birthday anniversary, Mrs. Eliza Ann McFadyen answered the death summons Sunday morning at the home of her daughter, Mrs. F. J. White of New Waterford.  She had been ill of stomach trouble the past nine weeks.  The deceased, a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Porter, was born Aug. 4, 1850, in Maryland, and prior to her one year's residence in New Waterford she lived in Pittsburgh.  Funeral services will be held Tuesday afternoon at 2 o'clock, from the F. J. White home.  Rev. W. C. Ferver, pastor of the Presbyterian Church, of which the deceased was a member, will have charge.  Surviving with the husband, James McFadyen, are three daughters--Mrs. C. L. Addleman, Mrs. Mary Durline of Pittsburgh and Mrs. White of New Waterford--and one son--David McFadyen of Pittsburgh.

Eliza Ann (Porter) McFadyen was Jim's great-grandmother.
