Obituary March 19, 1892 (on the date of death)
Note:

From the The Decatur Daily Republican.

This morning at 1:55 o'clock Mrs. Mary Frances Close Griswold, wife of Charles L. Griswold, Sr., passed away in death at the family home 4ll West Main street. The deceased had been in poor health for some months, the result mainly of an attack of the grip. A few months ago she visited the sanitarium at Western Springs ILL., to receive electric treatment, but little relief was afforded her.

Since her return home the deceased had been attended by Dr. E. W. Moore and Dr. Will Barnes who gave her the best treatment that their experience and medical science could offer. There were times when she seemed better, but her afflication was such that she could not gain complete strength. The family realized that her days were numbered anticipated her wants faithfully and made her last hours as peaceful and restful as possible. The deceased was born at Albion, New York, March 16, 1840, and became the wife of Mr. Griswold January 20, 1863.

Since 1866 she had resided in Decatur. Her children are C. L. Grswold,Jr., and Miss Carolyn L. Griswold. She was the youngest of a family of eleven children, six and five daughters. Her living sisters and brothers are Miss L. Carrie Close, of Decatur; Mrs. L. F. Parker, of Davenport, Iowa; Mrs. J. C. Hitchcock, of Oconomowoc, Wis.; J. A. Close, San Jose, Cal ; Wm. G. Close, Saginaw, Mich.

Mrs. Griswold was a devout member of John's Episcopal church, and had a large number of friends in this and other communities. Her death removes from the home a devoted wife and mother, from the church an active member and from social circles a lady who was loved and admired for her intelligence and admirble qualities. The bereaved husand and children will have the sincere sympathy of all friends in this time of their great sorrow.
