Mrs. America Holtzclaw Obituary

from The Harrodsburg Herald, Mercer County, Kentucky

Saturday, April 1, 1899

Mrs. America Holtzclaw, an aged and highly respected lady, died of paralysis, Tuesday, at her late home, five miles west of town.  She was eight-four years old, and spent all her long and useful life in this county.  She was the widow of Samuel Holtzclaw, deceased, and a sister of the late Messrs. Harvey, Sidney, William and Robert McFatridge.  She leaves an only child, Mr. William E. Holtzclaw, one of our most intelligent and prosperous farmers.  She was, for many years, a faithful member of the Presbyterian Church and has gone to receive the reward of them that love and serve the Lord.  The funeral was conducted Thursday, at the house, by her pastor, Rev. J. G. Hunter, D. D., and the interment was in Spring Hill Cemetery.
