Benjamin Craft
Died at his home in Jefferson township Greene County, Pa., Friday March 26, 1886.
Mr. Benjamin Craft , a well Known and highly respected citizen, aged 90 years. Mr. Craft was born near Merritstown, Redstone township, Fayette County, Pa. Dec. 26,1796. He was married Oct. 20,1822, to Mrs. Mary Craft a young widow of Merritstown, by Rev. Jason Meeks, of Bridgeport Pa., and they have traveled life's journey together for more than 64 years. His wife who is four years his junior, still survives him, but is quite feeble.
Mr. Craft served seven years as Colonel of the 103 Regiment, Pa. Volunteers, under Gen. Merrick and Gen. Gideon John, and was highly honored by his men and officers. In April, 1845 he moved to Greene County, Pa.,where he made his permanent residence. He was the father of 15 children, six sons and nine daughters, of whom three sons and six daughters are still living. In the fall of 1875, while the Rev. Liman Streeter was holding a "bush" meeting in the grove known as "Morgan Youngs" grove, Mr. Craft and his wife both sought religion, and united with the Disciple Church, and have since lived constant members. Mr. Craft had strong intellectual powers, and these he used to a great advantage in the study of the bible, he had learned to love its holy pages and to live out its teachings with all sincerity. In his short Christian life he exhibited most practically how to live for Christ. His cheerful and interesting conversation, his encouraging words, his straight forward and decisive mind; these were a characteristic of his noble life, and all pointed to something higher and better and grander beyond this dark vale of tears. He was straight forward, upright and a honest man in all his dealings. In the summer of 1884, while walking about the yard, he slipped and fell, and for several weeks he was confined to his bed. In September of the same year he was taken with some affection of the urinary organs, which finally terminated in his death at the time above stated. His remains were interment in the Hewitt Church cemetery, on Sunday, March 28, at 11o'clock AM. The funeral services were conducted by Rev. Morgan Woods, of Clarksville, Pa..

God watched you as you suffered
He knew you had your share,
He tenderly closed your weary eyes
And took you in His care.
In tears I saw you sinking
And watched you fade away,
It crushed my heart to know
God had taken you away.
But when I saw you sleeping
Peacefully free from pain
I could not wish you back
To suffer that again.
I often think of you
And speak of how you died,
To think you could not say goodbye
Before you closed your eyes.
Sadly missed by Wife Freda.

Cumberledge-In loving memory of our dear Mother, Grandmother and Great grandmother, Kitty Opal Cumberledge, who passed away 22 years ago, July 30, 1960.
What I would give if I could say,
I guess I'll go see mom today;
To hear her voice and see her smile,
To sit and talk with her awhile.
Those who have a Mother,
Treasurer her with care.
You never know her value
Till you see her empty chair.
You only have one Mother,
Patient, kind and true,
No other friend in all the worldWill be as true to you,
But when we saw her sleeping,
Peacefully, free from pain,
We could not wish her back.
To suffer that again.
I often think of how she died,
And could not say good bye.
For all of us she did her best,
May God grant her eternal rest.
Sadly missed and dearly Loved by Daughters, Sons-in-law, Grandchildren and Great Grandchildren.

Cumberledge-In loving memory of our dear Mother, Grandmother and Great grandmother, Kitty Opal Cumberledge, who passed away 22 years ago, July 30, 1960.
What I would give if I could say,
I guess I'll go see mom today;
To hear her voice and see her smile,
To sit and talk with her awhile.
Those who have a Mother,
Treasurer her with care.
You never know her value
Till you see her empty chair.
You only have one Mother,
Patient, kind and true,
No other friend in all the world
Will be as true to you,
But when we saw her sleeping,
Peacefully, free from pain,
We could not wish her back.
To suffer that again.
I often think of how she died,
And could not say good bye.
For all of us she did her best,
May God grant her eternal rest.
Sadly missed and dearly Loved by Daughters, Sons-in-law, Grandchildren and Great Grandchildren.
