Elizabeth Perisho


DIED, Friday morning June 1st, 1888, Elizabeth Perisho, wife of Harvey[1] Perisho.

The deceased was born near Hazel Green, Morgan County, Ky., Dec., 1819, moved to Edgar Co. with her parents Jesse and Nancy Ogden, in October 1835, when she was about fifteen years old, and was married to Harvey[2] Perisho, Oct. 25, 1838. They have lived companions for almost fifty years, and have resided for forty-one years in their late residence. This the first death that has occurred in this house. By this union there was born unto them nine children, seven of whom are living and married, two died in infancy.

Aunt Betty, as she was familiarly known, received a stroke of paralysis last August, and from that time she grew weaker, until Friday morning she answered the Master's call, and passed over the River of Life to join loved ones and await the coming of her loving and devoted husband and other dear friends.

She was a woman who was possessed of such strong char­acter and noble qualities, that she was regarded by her large circle of friends and relatives as being angelic. Few who have passed beyond can have it said they left no enemies be­hind. To know her was to love her. She had a kind word and look for everyone. Will she be missed? Yes; not only by her husband, children and grandchildren, but by a host of friends, who deemed it a pleasure to visit Aunt Betty.

Elder Brooks conducted the funeral services, assisted by Rev. E. B. Randle. The remains were followed to Edgar cemetery by a large concourse of friends and relatives.
