Miss Agnes Stafford
The oldest daughter of Joseph and Jane Black Stafford, was born August 23, 1829, in Lost Creek Township, Miami County, Ohio. She resided on the farm where she was born until the death of her father, November 12, 1873, when she and her mother moved to the city of Troy, where she resided until her death, last Friday, October 8, 1897. She had two sisters, Mrs. Sarah Stafford Hays, and Miss Martha Stafford, and one brother, William Stafford, all of whom preceded her to the eternal world. Though she leaves a large number of distant relatives, the only immediate survivors of her branch of the Stafford family are Miss Olive and Mr. Will S. Hays, the children of her sister, Sarah. Miss Stafford was laid away in a magnificent casket with the choicest floral emblems as tokens of loving care and esteem. Rev. S. O. Royal conducted the funeral service and accompanied the cortege to Casstown Cemetery.
