GAMBLE, Elizabeth Cunningham

At 4 o'clock Sat, Aug 31, 1912, at her home in Moorefield, surrounded by all her children, Mrs Elizabeth Gamble, one of the oldest residents of the South Branch Valley, entered into rest aged 90 years, 3 months and 16 days. On Aug 5th, she was taken ill, and for three weeks her death was expected at any time. The last few years of her life was spent in almost total physical blindness, but with the exception of her sight all of her faculties were remarkably well preserved. Mrs Gamble was the daughter of Jesse and Pattie Snodgrass Cunningham and was born near Moorefield May 15, 1822. Though she had past her four score years and ten - a remarkable age - she did not attain to the days of the years of her venerable mother, who was almost ninety-three at the time of her death. In 1848, March 29, she was married to Mortimer Williams Gamble, in the same house in which she died. Of the union six children were born. Jesse Cunningham, who died at two years of age, and six who survive her; John, Samuel, Mortimer Williams, Kate, Alice, Bettie (Mrs B W Chrisman), all of Moorefield, and Mrs Laura Cunningham, of Hutchison Ky. In Feb 1872, she was bereft of her husband and for forty years. For fifty years she was a consistent member of the Presbyterian church. At 3:30 Mon afternoon, Sept 2, the casket covered with floral offerings, was bourne to the church she loved and after service conducted by her pastor, her body was laid to rest by the side of her husband in Olivet Cemetery.
