At her home at Arbuckle, Union District, this (Mason) county, on Sunday morning, January 26th, 1908, Mrs. Elizabeth Jane Maupin, widow of the late Charles White Maupin, died after several week's illness of pneumonia.
She was born in Shennandoah (sic) county, Virginia, February 8, 1829, her parents being Morgan and Mary (Allen) Moore, who emigrated to this county, to Mercers Bottom, when the daughter was a child. She was united in marriage at Gallipolis, on July 1, 1848, to Mr. C.W. Maupin and to this union twelve children were raised to maturity.

Mrs. Maupin had a wide acquaintance in the county. She was much of the time in the store, her husband conducted for so many years. She was a famous "house mother" as the Germans so fitly put it, and who, that recalls the early years, of the Mason County Fairs but remember the boxes and baskets of good things to eat that carried off the blue ribbons, and were made by Mrs. Maupin as were the prize wines and quilts and articles of house hold manufacture. Here hands seemed never to have been idle. But her activity constituted her chief happiness and she has earned the folding of hands for her long rest.
