Resident of Oxford for 48 Years Passes Away at Home of Daughter


   Mrs. Lillie Henstock Glover, daughter of Samuel and Annie Henstock and widow of John R. Glover died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Aaron B. Gates, 12 Havemeyer Place, Greenwich, Connecticut, Saturday March 17 at the age of 65 years.

   She had been in failing health for about a year and has been tenderly cared for by her son and daughter, James Glover of this village and Mrs. Annie Gates of Greenwich, Connecticut.  About a month ago it was thought best to take her to her daughter's home at Greenwich where her son-in-law, who is a doctor, could look after her and where too the entire family could be together.  She stood the trip well, but failed rapidly thereafter until death took place Saturday.

   Mrs. Glover was born at Montrose, Pennsylvania, and lived there until the age of 18 when she was married to John R. Glover of Oxford, May 19, 1880.  Since her marriage she has lived in Oxford.

   Mr. Glover will be remembered as a former attorney of Oxford who served 11 years in the state legislature as reading clerk.  He died in Brooklyn December 21, 1912.

   Mrs. Glover was a kind and devoted mother who was always working for the welfare of her children.  She was a faithful communicant of St. Paul's Church of this village and a loved and respected woman of the community.

   The body was brought to the home on Washington Park Sunday afternoon where the funeral was held Tuesday afternoon at 2 o'clock with the Rev. H. C. Whedon, rector of St. Paul's Church officiating.  Burial was made in Riverview cemetery.

   She is survived by one son and one daughter, James W. Glover of Oxford, and Mrs. Annie H. Gates of Greenwich, Connecticut.
