#29 - Nancy Ann Acre Obituary

This obituary for Nancy Ann Acre Denney was originally posted online by H. Edgar Hill,,


Nancy Ann, daughter of Leonard and Sarah Acre, was born in Alabama in 1826, and was united in marriage to Moses Denny in 1851. To this union were born 6 children, Mrs. Thomas C. (Mary) Wilson, and George Denny of this place; Mrs. Rachel Higbee of Friendship, WI; James Denny of French Lick and John Denny of Washington; and two sons, Leonard and Anderson Gray by a former marriage.

She departed this life March 6, 1915, age 89 years, 1 month and 27 days. "Aunt" Nancy united with the U.B. Church when she was quite young and was true to her faith in every sense of the word.
Asleep in Jesus, Blessed Sleep for which none ever wake to weep.

For several years she had made her home with her daughter, Mrs. T.C. Wilson. Aunt Nancy was a kind wife and loving mother, and was loved by all who knew her. She will be greatly missed in our community.
Her husband and two children preceded her to the Great beyond. She leaves beside her children 40 grandchildren, 31 great grandchildren and one great, great, grandchild.

Funeral services were conducted at the home of her daughter, Mrs. T.C. Wilson by Rev. Wm. Cox and she was tenderly laid to rest in Morrison Cemetery.
