Priscilla Stagg Obituary

from The Sayings, Harrodsburg, Kentucky

Saturday, September 18, 1897

Mrs. Priscilla Stagg, widow of the late Simon Stagg and mother of Messrs. Elwood Stagg, of this county, and G. A. Stagg, of Louisville, died of general debility, Thursday, in the sixty-ninth year of her age.  Her father, Mr. John Adams, was twice married, she being a daughter of the first marriage and sister of Messrs. Adam and David Adams.  Messrs. John Ebenezer, Caleb, Joshua and William Adams are her half brothers.  She was a lady of strong mind and good judgment and a true Christian.  For many years she was a devout member of the Presbyterian Church and now enjoys the rest that is reserved for them that love and serve the Lord.  As daughter, wife, mother and neighbor, she knew her duty and nobly did it.  The funeral was conducted, yesterday, at 3 o’clock, p.m. at the Assembly Presbyterian Church, by her pastor, Rev. W. O. Goodloe, assisted by Rev. J. G. Hunter, D. D., of the First Presbyterian Church; and interment was in Spring Hill Cemetery.
