Mary Ann (Williams) FIRQUAIN
Mary Ann WILLIAMS was born in Cumberland County, Kentucky, November 25, 1854,and died at the home of her son,W.A. FIRQUAIN, near Hyro,Oklahoma, August 20, 1931, being 85 years, 8 months, and 26 days old.
On March 18, 1861 she was married to John W. FIRQUAIN who preceded her in death some eight years ago. To this union 13 children were born, three of whom died in infancy, and two other daughters grew to womanhood before passing to the better land. While in her youth an still living in Kentucky, she heard the Libing Message preached by the pioneer of the Reformation, and to this she gladly rendered obiedience and became simply a Christian. To this pledge she showed her devotion throughout the years she spent here below. This upright life in Christ she implanted in her children--the great heritage she has left humanity. A devoted wife and mother, a pleasing and loveable character to all who knew her-for her friends were numbered by her aquaintances.
The FIRQUAINS were among the first settlers in Caddo County and their usefullness to the citizenry and the community has ever been felt.
There is left to mourn her timely death , four sons and four daughters. Mrs. Mattie RUSSELL, Raton, New Mexico. Mrs. W.T. CLAWSON, Jet, Oklahoma. N.S. FIRQUAIN, Durant, Oklahoma. Mrs. E. M. DOWELL, Roxanna,Texas. Mrs.Walter PACKARD and W.A. FIRQUAIN of Hydro, Oklahoma. E.J. and C. S. FIRQUAIN of Kansas City, Kansas; 31 grandchildren, 32 great grandchildren, 3 great-great grandchildren, 4 nephews,and 3 neices besides a host of friends and neighbors.
She quietly went to sleep with no physical ailment to hamper her- the body just simply worn out- no longer a habitable place for her spirit, who took its flight to God who gave it, and the body was laid to rest beside her husband in the Hydro Cemetery. Funeral services were concucted by A.J. BRADSHAW, of the church of christ of Weatherford, Oklahoma, at the home of W. A. FIRQUAIN, where a large concource of sorrowing relatives and friends were gathered.
She has sown richly of good works in this life. May she reap abundantly in the life to come,and may we all try to excel that we meet in the great beyond, is the wish of the writer.
