The "old reliable" and were, well, reliable when it came to finding my maternal great grandmother, Mary Adeline Balar-Goins' obituary. It only took me eight years to find it. Luckily, I have a picture of my 2nd great grandparents' tombstone which confirms the obituary.

Whew! I've been looking for this obituary for at least eight years. I found it last night.


The Cleveland Gazette 21 February, 1891

An obituary notice:

MOUNT VERNON, O. -- Never was our community more startled than this morning of the 27th when the sad news was spread aboard the Mrs. Addie Goins was dead after an illness of only few hours. She leaves a husband*, mother, sisters, brothers and seven children to mourn her demise. There were several lovely floral tributes and the "Ladies Court" assisted to conduct the services, the deceased being a member of that order. She was a true Christian, a loving wife, a patient and devoted mother an amiable daughter and a kind sister.
