Ashwood, Julia Ann (Harding)
Rushville Times-Rushville, Schuyler County, Illinois
April 17, 1913
page 11, column 2-3
Julia Ann Harding was born in New York City, June 7, 1826, and died at Ray {Schuyler County}, Illinois, April 14, 1913, aged 88 years, 10 months, 7 days.
The deceased came with her parents to the state of Illinois when she was about 13 years of age. They came as far as Ohio, and overland the remained of the trip, and because of the heavily loaded wagons, she walked most of the way. They settled on a large tract of land near Clayton, Adams County, and the deceased remained with the parents until she was married to Joseph Ashwood, December 9, 1848. They purchased apart of the original tract of land and lived there until 1867 or 1868 and moved in Browning Township where they resided until the death of the husband and father which occurred August 24, 1897.
There were seven children, seven sons and two daughters, Sarah died who's about two years old, and Thomas died March 21, 1910, being the oldest of the children. The remaining children four sons and one daughter were all in attendance at the funeral. There are 19 grandchildren and 22 great-grandchildren.
Deceased was converted in early life. The joy of the Lord came to her heart as she was entering the ground of a camp meeting. She with her husband, united with the Methodist Church a great many years ago. Their home was the home of all truly evangelical ministers. It could be said of them that they were given to hospitality. Their Christian influence and deeds of kindness was felt far and wide in the community, the poor and needy always found in them a source of help and sympathy. And their Christian imprint was made upon their own family, all of whom are Christians and living in hope of meeting the beloved parents who so devotedly gave their lives to this end. Doubtless many will rise in the resurrection and call them blessed.
The last illness of Mother Ashwood was at the home of her son John, in Ray. She came on a visit to see her brother, John R. Harding, who was ill at that time and died the following October. She took sick while on the visit and haggard for nearly a year when the messenger called her from her sufferings to her reward. She was unable to speak after last Thursday, but on Sunday evening the children gathered about her bed and sang some of the old hymns. She opened her eyes and her son, John asked her if all was well to raise her hand, and with the rallying strength she had left she lifted her hand, thus signifying her full preparation to meet the Lord. May peace be to her slumbering ashes till the morning of the resurrection shall came forth the sleeping dust and the power of Christ shall change the earthly to the immortal.
Funeral services were held Tuesday at 11 o'clock at the home of her son, John Ashwood, in Ray, conducted by Rev. F. L. Hall, of Greenville, Illinois, assisted by Rev. T. A. Daly, of Vermont {Illinois}. Interment in the Rushville Cemetery.
