"Another Pioneer Dead"
One of the oldest pioneers left us today for the unknown future. At 11:30 Mrs. Charlotte Grant, relict of Samuel T. Grant, who proceeded her to the unknown thirteen years ago, died at her home on the Troy pike just beyond the Cincinnati Rolling Mill and the Mitchell property, where she has resided over fifty years. She had come into this world in Faulkner County, Va., November 4th, 1809. In November 1830, Miss Mann, which was her maiden name, married Samuel T. Grant and the young couple at once came to Piqua, where they settled on the Hamilton farm. After a few years they left for Chickasaw, Mercer Co., but soon returned, and settled on the homestead occupied for over fifty years. Four children still survive them, Mrs. Mary E. Mitchell, Mrs. Catherine Kitchen, James Grant, of this city and Joseph Grant, who is in Missouri. Hemorrhage of the bowels was the cause of her death.
The funeral will take place Wednesday afternoon at 2 p.m. from her late residence. Rev. Clatworthy will officiate, Mrs. Grant having been an earnest member of the Baptist church for more than fifty years.

"Another Pioneer Gone"
Mrs. Charlotte Grant who died August 11, 1890, aged 80 years, 9 months and 8 days, was the daughter of George and Hannah Mann. She was born in Fauquier Co., Va., in the year 1809, and removed to this county in 1831 with her parents, where she continued to reside until her death, with the exception of about a year and a half when she resided in Mercer Co., O. in the year 1840 she, with her husband, became united with the First Baptist Church, of this place, whose Roll is the only one that has ever borne her name, which is now on the Roll of the church triumphant "The Lamb's book of Life."
She was of a retiring disposition, her Christian life assumed no display, but it was marked with conscientiousness and a depth that commends it to all.
She was the mother of five children, four of whom are living, three residing here and one in Missouri, and now she has followed the partner of her joys and sorrows who departed from her side 13 years ago. A short time before she died she commended her spirit to God, and then having prayerfully and calmly waited the end, her spirit entered the vale. And now she will await the home-coming of the children when their time shall come. The funeral sermon was preached by Rev. W. Clatworthy from Psalm 23:4 "Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me."
