Mary Eliza West, the oldest child of Charles and Harriet Bacon Dickinson, was born on a farm at Halltown, Salem County, N. J., December 29, 1839, and died in Shiloh, N. J., December 4, 1928.
When about nine years of age she moved with her parents to a farm near Dickinson Corners. Later, leaving the farm, they came to Shiloh, where she spent practically the rest of her life. One year was spent with a son and friends in Kansas, and the last few months with a nephew, Clarence Dickinson and family, who lovingly cared for her during failing health and strength.
About 1859 she was united in marriage with Charles W, West, who preceded her some years ago. To them were born three sons - Fred H., Albert J., and Francis. Fred died in infancy. Albert became a navigator on merchant ships and for thirty-five years has been lost to his family. Francis, whose home was in Nortonville, Kan., passed away some years ago.
Mrs. West was baptized in April, 1851, and united with the Shiloh Seventh Day Baptist Church, in whose fellowship she continued for almost seventy-seven years. She leaves many friends, several nephews, and two granddaughters - daughters of Francis.
Farewell services were held in the Shiloh church, and the remains laid away in the Shiloh cemetery. In the absence of Pastor Loofboro, Rev. H. L. Cottrell conducted the services. E. F. L.
