OBITUARY Mrs. Elizabeth Brush
Elizabeth Todd McCormick was born in Shelby County, Ky., March 12, 1915. Moved with her widowed mother to Waveland, Ind., in 1827. Joined the M.E. Church and was converted in her 15th year at a camp meeting near Russelville, Ind. She was married to James Brush Aug. 2, 1832. Moved to Ladoga in 1837, and to Jamestown in 1869.
In her young days she listened to the eloquent John Strange preach, and his magic words lived in her heart all her long life. In her own home she entertained such grand and good men as Daniel Dermott, Richard Hargrave, Aaron Wood and many others. She was a woman of strong traits of character and she could never be moved from what she thought was right.
She was a mother of nine children, three of whom survive her: john Brush of Lizton, H.C. Brush of Lebanon and Mrs. J.W. Hendricks at whose home the death occurred. She departed this life May 28, 1907, aged 92 years, 2 months and 16 days. Her husband died Sept. 30, 1880.
