Miami Union

July 7, 1910 

DRURY, ELI HARRISON - Eli Harrison Drury was born in Somerset County, Pa., Jan. 2nd 1828; died in Elizabeth township, June 30th, 1910, aged 83 years, 5 months, and 28 days.  He was married in Perry county, Ohio, 1848, to Mary A. Storts, who preceded him to the other side, July 27th, 1907.  To this union were born six children, four sons and two daughters, five of whom are living to mourn their loss.  He also leaves 14 grandchildren, one brother and a host of esteemed friends.  Mr. Drury was in the mercantile business for some years, but spent most of his life on the farm.  He was a very conscientious man and would rather bear an injury than inflict one.  Quiet, he lived the simple life; he was meek, hence his long life.  He was honest to a fault.  We bury him away out of sight to "Rest, till the trumpet shall wake the dead to life forever."  The funeral services were held Wednesday forenoon at McKendra church.  Rev. David Clutch officiating.  Interment in the adjacent cemetery.
