MRS. LEONARD G. LINDSEY
Celia M. Lindsey, wife of Leonard G. Lindsey, died at her home on Taylor street September 8, 1918, aged 77 years.
Mrs. Lindsey was born in Rockdale March 21, 1842, and was the daughter of Norman Ford and Eliza Launt his wife. Her early life was spent in Rockdale followed by a few years in Norwich. The family finally removed to this village where she was married to Leonard G. Lindsey in 1869. Mr. and Mrs. Lindsey, soon after their marriage, removed to Kansas and from that state to Springfield, Mo., and then returned to Oxford where they have resided ever since.
Mrs. Lindsey has been a member of the Episcopal church for about fifty years. She has been an invalid for a long time, suffering much from her malady. From early summer she has been growing worse and for the most of the time spent the days either in her bed or an easy chair. During the last illness of her sister, Mrs. Samuel Shapley, whose death occurred last July, Mrs. Lindsey was unable to go to the sister's home next door to her own.
She is survived by her husband, and a nephew, Herbert F. Bush of Evart, Mich.
Funeral services were held at her home on Wednesday afternoon, Rev. J. Winslow Clarke officiating. Burial was made in Riverview cemetery.
