STRUBLE, Elizabeth (nee Dickson)
ELIZABETH (nee DICKSON) STRUBLE, (married name Struble)
Elizabeth Dickson was born May 18th, 1816 in Bazetta Township Trumbull County Ohio. Left an orphan by the death of her father at the age of 12 years she not only supported herself but aided her mother in caring for a large family until her marriage with William Struble which occurred August 20th, 1835.
Lived in Trumbull County until September 1846 when they removed to Henry County, now Fulton, then almost an unbroken wilderness and there endured all the hardships incident to pioneer life. Much credit is due the deceased for her courage and perseverance in battling the trials and troubles that beset them on every hand. Slow to choose the privations of a western life, when once the step had been taken nothing could turn her from the determination to build a home for her children. Success finally crowned their efforts and a large farm was improved on which they lived until April 1881 when they removed to Wauseon where they resided until her death which occurred December 26th 1889. She was the mother of 11 children 6 of whom with her husband survive her. Her last illness was long and severe but was borne with Christian fortitude and as she assured her life partner she was only going to her Happy Home.
So- “Call not back the dear departed,
Anchored safe where storms are o’er
on the border land we left her
soon to meet, to part no more.”
