Elizabeth Minglin Applegate
Born 16 December 1835
Mrs. Elizabeth Applegate, the widow of the late Chas. R. Applegate, died at her home in Scotch Grove, last Monday morning, the 27th inst. of cancer of the stomach. Mrs. Applegate had been a patient sufferer for several months. A post-mortem examination developed the fact that no treatment or operation could have prolonged her life. The maiden name of the deceased was Elizabeth Minglin. She was born in Hubbard, Trumbull county, Ohio, December 16, 1835, it being the birthplace of her husband. She was married June 19th, 1858, and came to Jones county in 1865, settling with her husband at Scotch Grove. She was a faithful and consistent member of the Christian church. Mrs. Applegate is survived by four daughters, Mrs. A. J. Schoonover of Wayne township, Mrs. F. J. Royden of Edgewood, Mrs. B. L. Hoyt of Scotch Grove, and Mrs. C. P. Latta of Scotch Grove. All were present at the funeral services which were conducted on the afternoon of the 29th inst. by Rev. J. P. Martindale, pastor of the Christian church of Monticello, who has long been a friend of the family. The remains were laid to rest by the side of those of her husband in Oakwood cemetery at Monticello. Mrs. Applegate was a hospitable and charitable woman, full of sympathy and never neglectful in the care or education of her family.
