Mrs. Carr, a Civil War veteran's widow, is the mother of five living sons and daughters, 24 grandchildren, 16 great-grandchildren and one great-great-grandchild.Her daughters are Mrs. Elizabeth Titus, Phillipsville, Mrs. Lulu Adams, Fredonia, and Mrs. Nania Marshall, Chaffee, Pa.Her sons are Harry Carr, Mill Village, and Forrest Carr, Girard.
Mrs. Carr, nee Mary Sayres was born near New Richmond, Crawford County.When a girl she was married and widowed.At the age of 25 she married Edwin Carr, a Civil War veteran.To this union was born ten children.
When the oldest was sixteen and the youngest was but three months old, the father died.Mrs. Carr assumed the responsibilities of the farm, and rearing of the children.The education of the three oldest ones was made possible because of the academy for Civil War orphans at Mercer.With the meager returns from the farm and a small pension, she was able to take care of the family.
Mrs. Carr reads without glasses.She says her chief interest is governmental affairs.Her granddaughter, Mrs. Emmett Blystone of Phillipsville, ventured the opinion which Mrs. Carr approved, that the trying times of the Civil War, so vivid in her memory, created this interest.
