HUNT - Elizabeth Rebecca Hunt Kennedy (SRGP 77152) died at her home in Troy Boro on Sunday afternoon, March 5, 1911, aged 73 years and four months. The deceased was the daughter of Joseph Predmore and Elizabeth (or Betsy, as she was more commonly called) Dobbins Hunt; and of a family of five children, two of them died in infancy. Her father, Joseph Predmore Hunt, was a native of Stillwater, Sussex County,N.J. but from boyhood to mature manhood was an inmate of the home of the Hon. Reuben Wilbur, an uncle by marriage of his future wife, and it was to the wise counsel and sage advise of this friend that Mr., Hunt attributed much of his success in life. Through the maternal line she was a descendant of William DOB's and James McKean, two of the earlier pioneers of Western Bradford, and through that line was related in a greater or less degree to a large portion of its inhabitants. She was born on the Hunt homestead farm, in Troy township , now owned and occupied by her brother, John F. Hunt, on November 4th,1837, and here she passed nearly three-fourths of her life in the active and loving service of father and mother, sister and brother, and it was only in the declining years of life that she went from that home to brighten, for a few short years, the home of another. She was married to Milo Kennedy of Austinville,Pa. on April 10th 1890, and was left a widow by his death in June 1894, and the greater portion of the time since that date she has resided in Troy. The only immediate relatives that survive her are her brother, John F., residing upon the old homestead, and her sister, Mary Ann Ferguson, who, for many years, was her companion in widowhood and her associate in the home, and it is by the request o-~ her brother that, I, the Paymaster, schoolmate, relative and lifelong friend, thus to pay this last tribute of respect to her memory. Funeral services were held from her late home on Wednesday afternoon, and in the absence of her pastor, the Rev. H. B. Allen, were conducted by Rev. P. J. William, pastor of the Methodist church of Canton,Pa., in the presence of a large number of relatives and friends, who had gathered to pay their last tribute of respect, taking for the basis of his remarks the text, the language of Job, "All the days of my appointed time, will I wait, till my change come." Appropriate selections were beautifully and feelingly sung by Mr Lee Reynolds, while beautiful floral tributes of love and -t from her Sunday school class and others showed the esteem to which she was held and, at the close of a beautiful day in March, typical of the close of a beautiful life, in Glenwood, the beautiful "City of the Dead", in the ground hallowed by the ashes of parents, kindred and friends, in accordance with the rites and ceremony of the church she loved, I all that was mortal of Elizabeth Hunt Kennedy was laid to rest, and of whom it can be truthfully said: "None knew her but to love her, None named her but to praise." She has gone from us after her long suffering, leaving those who knew her in the full hope and faith, that whatever of good comes in a future world, to the pure in heart of earth, it will be here to share.
HUNT - Grace Hunt Teeter
Another sad death to startle the community and again warn us “That in the midst of life we are in death” and that “We know not what a day may bring forth,” was that of last Sabbath, when Mrs. Grace Hunt Teeter departed this life at her home on Canton street, aged thirty four years. The deceased had been in failing health for the past two years, but able to be around, being possessed of a hopeful disposition, and much energy of character. On Friday previous to her death she spent the forenoon at the office of her husband, assisting him in electrical work, and in the afternoon was engaged in domestic affairs in her home. So the call was sudden.
Mrs. Teeter was the only child of John and Augusta Colony Hunt. About fourteen years ago she was married to Ernest Teeter of Austinville, residing there until about three years ago when they moved to Troy, where she has made many friends, endearing all to her by her amiable disposition and lovely manner. She will be missed in the home, church and community and sympathy is extended to the bereaved husband, father, and other friends by whom she is survived. Her funeral was conducted from her late home, and the large concourse of friends who gathered to pay their last tribute, was an evidence of the high esteem in which she was held. The casket we laden with beautiful flowers. Rev. A. E. Hall of the M. E. church offered prayer. Miss Henrietta Pomeroy sang appropriate selections, and Rev. E. P. Morse of the Presbyterian church spoke works of comfort from Ezekiel 24-16. The remains were interred in Glenwood. The friends present from a distance were: Mr. and Mrs. William Colony, Mansfield, Mrs. Chas. Colony, H. H. Ferguson and Wilmot Knapp and wives and Mrs. Burton Colony of Elmira, Mr. and Mrs. Albert Blackwell of Towanda, Dr. Dwyer and wife of Canton, Mrs. Chas. Fraley of Athens, George Fraley and wife of Waverly, Mr. and Mrs. Chas. Teeter of Austinville, and many others from the surrounding towns. TGR 1903

professional, Dorothy was devoted to her family and cherished every moment
spent with them. She was intensely proud of her boys, Kurt Mitstifer of Palm

she completely lit up when sharing photos and stories about her seven
grandchildren; Gunnar, Torrance, Matthew, Nicholas, Brett, Jr., Kelly and
Paige. Dorothy also adored her three sisters, Wilma Trias of Ormond Beach,
FL, Ellen (Marvin) Mitterer of Trumansberg, NY and Roberta (Harvey) Butler
