1897, Nov 17 - Death Notice: The Weekly Bulletin, Spencer, WV

November 17, 1897

Uncle "Ned" Greathouse, one of the oldest citizens of the county died on last Sunday at Linden at the ripe old age of 90 years. The remains were brought here and buried in the Spencer cemetery on Monday. Funeral services were conducted by Rev. E. J. Harris of M. P. Church. A more extended notice will appear next week.

1897, Nov 24 - Obituary: The Weekly Bulletin, Spencer, WV

November 24, 1897

An Old Pioneer Gone

Edward Greathouse, born November 17, 1807, died November 12, 1897.

John Greathouse, father of Edward, left Harrison county at the beginning of the present century came to what is now Roane county, settling a short distance below Spencer on Spring Creek near where John Walsh now lives. Here in this almost unbroken wilderness the boy Edward was born and grew to manhood. His father's home was one of hospitality and good will. All travelers might shelter under his roof and be fed from his table without thought of a charge. All denominations worshipped at their home, for churches there were none, and the congregations were always pressed to remain for meals. "Uncle Ned" as he was familiarly known grew up with the impress of his surrounding stamped in his character. Genial, generous and honest; no charge to the contrary was ever made; but all who knew respected him.

In 1833 he was married to [Matilda] Elizabeth Blosser. Of this union 14 children were born, most of whom are still living and known to BULLETIN readers.

He was for many years a member of the M. P. Church but in later years moved to Linden and made his home with his daughter, Mrs. G. W. Webb. Here he became a member of the Baptist church and died in its fellowship. Peace to his ashes.
