Excerpt From Mary Margaret's 1892 Obituary:


"She was twice married, her first marriage was to Peter Hoy,

who was accidentally injured after falling off a horse on his way

home from a “church” meeting on Aug 12, 1837,

from which he died the next morning.

From this marriage one son was born, Rev. Simon P. Hoy.

Her second marriage was to David A. Hoy, who survives her at the age of 84
years. Her first and second husbands were brothers. To the second marriage
seven sons and three daughters were born, all living. There are 33
grandchildren and 6 great grandchildren. In 1840, she with her husband,
moved from Pickaway Co, Ohio to Putnam County, Ohio, where they lived for
three years in a wilderness, in a cabin, six miles from a wagon road. In
1843, they returned to Pickaway County, OH, and in 1854, on the 6th day of
October the family reached Shelbyville, Il., and have resided there ever
since, in the locality where she died."
