Margaret Wisecup Smalley
Margaret Wisecup, daughter of Joseph and Phoeba Wisecup was born Oct. 16, 1853; departed from this life on Christmas day, Dec. 25th, 1914, aged 61 years 2 months 9 days. She was united in marriage to Willis Smalley [in] June 1873. To this union were born five daughters and three sons; one daughter and one son preceding her to the better world. She leaves a husband, two sons and four daughters to mourn their loss, besides 13 grandchildren, two sisters, and one brother. In 1905, she united with the Mt. Zion U.B. Church, of Grover Hill. In her death the church has lost a loyal member; the home a true wife, mother and sister. Her life has been one of blessings to those who knew her. Surely heaven has become dearer and richer by the entrance of such a life within its portals.
Farewell, thou mother, darling wife,
Basking in the brightness of everlasting life.
May thou, in peace untold,
From all harm, safe in the shepard's fold.
