Mrs. Caroline Kinney
Mrs. Caroline Kinney, for more than a half a century a resident of the township, and a lady loved and esteemed by all who knew her, passed away at her home on Sunday morning after a brief illness of only four days. Caroline Webb was born in Seneca, Ontario county, N. Y., June 30, 1833, having reached the age of 76 years, five months and nineteen days. She was the sixth child of her parents' family, consisting of thirteen who came to Michigan from the state of New York in 1847 and settled in Lima. The deceased was united in marriage to October 22, 1855, and to whom, Sarah and Elmer, passed away a number of years ago. The survivors are Frank W. and Charles D. Mr. Kinney died in 1898. Besides the two sons and several grand-children, Mrs. Kinney leaves one brother, Geo. Webb, of Williamston, who came to attend the funeral. None entered the home of this pioneer resident without a warm welcome nor left without feeling the warmth of a genuine hospitality. Old age did not diminish her unselfish solicitude for her friends and loved ones. She was of Christian faith, having united with the Methodist church in early life. Burial services were held at her late home Tuesday, December 21, conducted by Rev. H. W. Mack, pastor of Schoolcraft Baptist church. Interment in the Kern cemetery beside loved ones gone before.
