          Nancy Ireland was born in Virginia March 21, 1809; died in Shelby county, Indiana, October 31st, 1886.  She came to Shelby county, Indiana from Warren county, Ohio, in 1851, and united with the M. E. Church at Winchester and for more than thirty-four years has been a faithful member of the same and a true Christian.  She leaves five children to mourn the loss of a good mother.  A large concourse of people followed her remains to the Winchester cemetery, where the funeral services were conducted by the writer, after which her body was gently laid in the grave to await the voice that shall command the graves to give up their dead.
She is not dead but sleepeth.
