Anna (Ginn) CRAWFORD
- Life's Journey Ended.
Mrs. Anna Crawford Passes Away.
Mrs. Anna Crawford, whose death had been anticipated for some days, passed peacefully away at her home on Seminary Hill at 6 o'clock Sunday evening. Her illness originated in what the physicians pronounced as attack of the grippe, which she sustained about three weeks ago. Deceased was from childhood a resident of this section and belonged to one of the most respected families of the county. She was a native of Philadelphia, and a daughter of the late Johnston Ginn. She was married to Andrew Crawford in Galena, and they took up their residence on a farm near Lancaster, where Mr. Crawford died twenty-six years ago. The family moved to Galena about eighteen years ago, and this city has since been their home. Mrs. Crawford is survived by five children-Thomas H. of Leadville, Col.; Mrs. Edward Winter and Mrs. Henry Berryman, of Cedar Rapids, Ia.; Mrs. J. W. Argent of Alexander, Ia.; Andrew of Galena, and Anna, who has made her home with her mother. All were with her when death's summons came. She is also survived by three brothers and two sisters. Of the brothers, William Ginn lives in New Mexico, Robert in Perry, Iowa, and the third is ex-sheriff James Ginn of Rice. One of her sisters is Mrs. J. M. Hunter, wife of the Mt. Carroll attorney, and the other is the wife of Thomas Argent, of Hampton, Ia. All of the relatives named will attend the funeral, excepting the brother who is in New Mexico. Mrs. Crawford was 66 years of age. She was a member of the First Presbyterian church and a lady of the highest worth. The funeral will take place from the family residence Wednesday at 10 o'clock.-Galena Gazette, January 19, 1891.
