1902 Memorial Card: Lydia F. Goldsberry, who died 10 July 1902
Memorial card printed upon the death of Lydia F. Goldsberry, who died 10 July, 1902 at age 39 years, 1 month, 6 days.
From online research, hopefully correct: [corrections welcome]
I found a Lydia F. Goldsberry who died in 1902, but her death record shows that she died 10 May 1902. Whether the record is wrong or the printer erred on the card, I don't know. Perhaps they're not the same person.
Lydia was born Lydia F. Hornbeck, I believe. Some sources have her parents as Joseph and Mary Ellen Thomas/Durham, but of these sources, some have her middle name as Ardelia, so I'm not confident.
In 1879 Lydia married James Lawson Goldsberry, son of Owen and Nancy (Farlow) Goldsberry. The couple had at least three children, as listed in the 1900 Census of Five Points Village, Ohio: Fred William Goldsberry, born 12 January 1881 in Ross County, Ohio; Malissa J. Goldsberry, born 26 August 1884 in Scioto Township, Ohio; and Cornelius Goldsberry, born 23 September 1886 in Madison Township, Ohio.
Lydia F. Goldsberry died in May or July 1902 as discussed above. James Lawson Goldsberry died 10 January 1946. They're buried in Springlawn Cemetery at Williamsport, Ohio.
