Mary S. Hargett
November 19, 1936


"Mary S. Hargett, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Whitfield Hargett, of Bath County Kentucky, was born June 29, 1862. 

She was united in marriage to L. H. Crawford on February 22, 1876. To this union was born thirteen children, eight sons and five daughters: 
Mrs. Climmer Kibey of Rooney, Ky., Rev. J. O. and Richard C. Crawford of Chicago, Illinois, James Crawford of Groveport, Ohio, 
Mrs. R. T. Burchett, Walter Clarence Manford and Weber Crawford of Olive Hill, Ky., Mrs Ida Roark of Counts X Roads, Ky., 
and Arthur Crawford of Portsmouth, Ohio. 

Two daughters, Edna Crawford and Mrs. Achsa McGlone, departed this life some years ago. 

She was united in marriage a second time to Rev. E. T. Hall of Olive Hill in March 1928, and was a true Christian helpmate to him until her death. 
She became a Christian early in life and united with the Methodist Episcopal Church, South. She lived an earnest Christian life, 
always admonishing her children to live upright Christian lives. Likewise to look beyond this life of trials and disappointments 
to that life eternal. From the hour she was stricken she knew the time had come when she must leave us, but she was so kind and 
patient in her affliction. She would smile and point upward to the very last moment. Mother is gone, but we know where to find her, 
for she is now with the angels. Let each one of us try to emulate the Godly life she lived before us, in order to meet her beyond this vale of tears."
