Mrs. Jemima Haney

The East Liverpool Tribune

Passed Away Sunday Evening After a Long Illness.

Mrs. Jemima A. Haney, wife of W. F. Haney, aged 66 years, died at her home in Chester avenue, at 8 o'clock Sunday evening (Jan 28, 1906) after a prolonged illness. She had been in poor health for over 20 years and for the past year had been confined to her bed.

Funeral services will be held from the home at 2 o'clock this afternoon. The Rev. W. H. Dye, pastor of the First Methodist Episcopal church, will officiate. The interment, which will be private, will take place in Spring Hill cemetery.

Mrs. Haney was born in Bantam, Clermont county, and was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Edward Doughty. Her marriage to Mr. Haney took place in 1864 and they lived for some years at Marion. They then moved to Wellsville which had been their home for the past 22 years. Mrs. Haney was a member of the First Methodist Episcopal church and until ill health made it impossible was a faithful attendant at the services.

She is survived by her husband and three children as follows: Elmer Haney and Miss May Haney, both of Wellsville, and Mrs. Maude Clyde, of Cleveland. Five brothers also survive; Levi Doughty, of Bantam; Joseph, of Brown County; Enos, of Marion county; John, of Washington, and Henry, of Mt. Carmel, Ill.

Thank you for posting this! This was a sister of my great-great-grandfather and this obit gives information on other siblings that I did not have. I am descended from Jemima's brother, John L. Doughty, who is listed in the obituary as from Washington, but it was actually Mount Washington on the east side of Cincinnati, in Hamilton County, Ohio.
Thanks again,
Amy Schneider
