Died - Ida Marie Combs was born at Westernport, Allegany County, Md., March 18th, 1841, and died in Pittsburgh, [Allegheny Co] PA., Thursday, Aug. 21st, 1879. She was a dutiful child, with tender heart and a loving disposition, thinking always of other's happiness before self. At the age of 16 she joined the M. E. Church at Piedmont, W.Va., and has ever since been an active, consistent and working member. She was married to Geo. W. MORGAN, of the East Baltimore Conference. She died peacefully and happily; leaving a husband and six children, the oldest being but 13 years and the youngest an infant, born the morning of its mother's death. The children could not all be brought, and the father had to remain with them. Services were held at the residence in Pittsburgh, and the parting of husband and children was a heart-rending scene. Her remains were brought to Oakland Saturday and interred in the Odd-Fellow's cemetery Sunday, after services in the M.E. Church, conducted by Rev. B. Ison.

Notes from Matt:

  1. Westernport is in Allegany County, MD on the Potomac River.
  2. Piedmont, W.Va is just opposite Westernport, MD in West Virginia.
