Obituary for Mrs. Maria Ford
Deaths and Funerals
Mrs. Maria Ford, formerly Mrs. Parley Green of Mumford, died in that village at the age of 83 years. Her maiden name was Maria Oaks, and she was born at Bradford, Vt., opposite Crown Point, June 9, 1802. She was one of the earliest settlers in Mumford, and is the last of those who can properly be called the pioneers of that village. Her life was passed there, and she was greatly respected by all in that village. She raised a large family who are now residing in Scotland. The funeral was held at the Baptist Church in Mumford, and the interment was in the cemetery there. In her last illness she was tenderly cared for by her daughter, Mrs. John Munson, who was unwearied in her attentions and kindness to her invalid mother.
