Died, at the home of her husband, Thomas J. Nally, near Bardstown, Kentucky, Friday, October 8, 1909, Mrs. Sallie Nally, aged 63 years. The funeral services were conducted Sunday morning at St. Joseph’s Church in Bardstown and the remains were interred in the St. Rose cemetery.
Mrs. Nally was a native of, and had spent most of her life, in Washington County. Her maiden name was Spalding, she being a daughter of the late Franklin and Ellen Ryan Spalding. She was first married in 1864 to the late Henry Fenwick, and to this union twelve children were born, five of whom survive, Mrs. W. A. Smith, Mrs. S. A. Smith, Mrs. Ella Montgomery and Messrs. Bert and Lev Fenwick. One brother, Mr. Martin J. Spalding, and one sister, Mrs. Thomas Fenwick, both of Uniontown, Kentucky, also survive. Twelve years ago the deceased married Mr. Thomas J. Nally, one of the best known and most highly respected citizens of this county.
Mrs. Nally was given a thorough education in her youth, having graduated from Loretto Academy, where, for many years, her aunt was the Mother Superior.
She had been sick for a long time, but bore her suffering patiently and did not rebel when the final summons came.
The family has the sympathy of a wide circle of friends.
Mr. Thomas L. Fenwick, formerly a citizen of this county, died at his home in Uniontown, Friday morning, at 10 o’clock of typhoid, his death occurring just an hour and a half prior to the time of the death of his sister-in-law, Mrs. T. J. Nally. Mr. Fenwick was the son of the late Thomas Y. Fenwick, and was 63 years old. In 1872 the deceased was married to Miss Abbie Spalding of Marion County. She, with nine children, survive the deceased. Mr. Will Fenwick, of this county, is a brother, and Mrs. Sue Mock, of Louisville, a sister.
Mr. Tom Williams, a well-known young man of the McIntire neighborhood, died at the home of his father, Mr. John Williams, Monday, of consumption, and was buried at St. Rose yesterday morning. The deceased had lived in Louisville the latter years of his life, but came home in August a sick man, and was unable to recover his health.
This makes the third grown child which Mr. John A. Williams has lost by death within a year.
