[Page Five -- Notes]

Notes from Ruth Sloan's letter, as to her mother's
sickness and death. April 21st her pulse ran low,
she had convulsions but would rally after them.
Was rational except in convulsions. The funeral
was in Blairsville Church, of second King's 6'0 "A
great woman's" the hymns were read "kindly light,
filled with glory", "All through the night", the
closing hymn was "peace perfect peace". So far as
I can make it out she died April 25, 1915.

[Page Six -- Obituary of Cynthia Jones Sloan]

Those Who Have Passed to Their Eternal Reward During
the Past Week

Mrs. Cynthia Jones Sloan

Mrs. Cynthia Jones Sloan, aged 75 years, widow of the
Rev. Dr. Harvey Sloan, died at her home with her
grandson, Joseph S. Criswell, at Vandergrift, Sunday.
She was the daughter of Isaac and Sara Jones, of
Valley Grove, near Wheeling, West Va. She leaves the
following children: Dr. George A. Sloan, Pittsburgh;
Charles H. Sloan, Newport, Ky.; Mrs. Sara S. Wilson,
Indiana; Mrs. Hugh Gage Moody, Windber; Miss Ruth Sloan,
at home and Miss Ida Sloan, Niles Ohio. Mrs. Sloan
was a member of the "Old Stone Church", Elm Grove, W. Va.,
from youth until she removed to Slate Lick, Armstrong
County, with her husband, where she lived about eight years.
Dr. Sloan resumed the pastorate of the First Presbyterian
Church at Leechburg in 1872, and on his retirement from
the ministry in 1896, on account of ill health, the
family removed to Blairsville.

Mrs. Sloan's body was brought here on the afternoon train
on Tuesday and taken to the First Presbyterian church
where the funeral service conducted by Rev. M. M. McDivitt
assisted by Rev. W.A. Roulston, pastor of the First
Presbyterian Church of Vandergrift, was held, and interment
made in the family lot in Blairsville cemetary.

It may be said of Mrs. Sloan that she was a model woman.
Endowed by her Creator with a kindly spirit, sanctified
by the grace of God, her life was an inspiration to all
with whom she came in contact, her smiling greeting
a constant benediction to those who met her, and the
world made all the richer for her having lived in it;
her calmness at the end a striking tribute to her Christian
faith, and an incentive to all her friends to follow in
her footsteps.
