The Death Record

Catherine Frizzell

Bardolph News: Mrs. Catharine Frizzell died [April 26, 1902] at the home of her daughter, Mrs. S. V. Portlock of this place on last Friday morning, aged 91 years, 3 months and 25 days. The deceased had been an invalid for many months from the failure of her physical powers with other complications so her death was not unexpected and came rather as a blessed relief than as a dreaded misfortune.

Funeral services were held at the M.E. church in this place on Saturday, conducted by Rev. C.A. Wright, after which the remains were conveyed to the Mound M.E. cemetery and laid by the side of those of the husband.

Catharine Lindsay was born in Baltimore County, Maryland, December 31, 1810. In 1835 she was married to Joshua Frizzell. To this union were born two sons and three daughters - Nancy L., wife of S.V. Portlock of this place; Margaret C, wife of George Barker of the Barker's Grove neighborhood, Joshua B, residing in Kansas, Edward, now deceased and George H.

The husband died on February 12, 1892, thus terminating a companionship extending over 47 years.

In the year 1836 (?) the deceased united with the M.E. church, remaining a consistent member during the remainder of her days.

Grandmother Frizzell outlived her day and generation. She belonged to that last vanishing class of pioneers whose virtues and accomplishments were as rugged as the character of their lives were (?) and sacrificing. She is spoken of as a woman of one character, a kind neighbor, a good wife and neighbor.
