Mrs. Mead was a member of the Second Congregational Church. She died July 26, 1857, having been born March 1, 1830.

Mrs. Etta Holly Morrell, 97, of 211 Valley Rd., Cos Cob, died at her home on Saturday morning. She was a life resident of Greenwich. The daughter of the late Theodore Holly and Clara Wicks Holly, Mrs. Morrell is survived by a daughter, Mrs. John Foley of Port Chester, and by several nephews and nieces.
During the days before her marriage, Mrs. Morrell used to walk across a floating bridge, near where the Mianus River bridge is today. The regular bridge had burned down. She especially liked to walk to the old Riverside Chapel.
She had no particular advice for a long life but she never drank or smoked and she liked to take long walks. Relatives said that she was never known to have an argument with anyone during her long adult life.
Until she broke her hip after falling at her home in August, Mrs. Morrell enjoyed good health. Guests at her July 10 birthday party remembered she had very few wrinkles in her face, although 97. At that time, she talked about the old days--when eggs were 15 cents a dozen and when a customer could buy six loaves of bread for 25 cents. That was around 50 years ago, she said.
She belonged to no organizations except those of her church. Services will be held from the Frank M. Reilly Funeral Residence at 10 a.m. tomorrow with the Rev. Dr. Vincent Daniels officiating. Burial will follow in the First Congregational Church Cemetery, Old Greenwich. Friends may call today from 3 to 5 p.m. and 7 to 9 p.m.8

Biography

ChildParent1
Birth11 November 1831Clara Miller was born on 11 November 1831 in New York. Death Certificate, State of Connecticut Bureau of Vital Statistics, copy issued 13 Jun 1989.2
Research Note1850In 1850. Effie McCallum is the Theodore descendant (his great-granddaughter through Frank, Clara) who told me that Clara had two children before she married Theodore, and she speculated that Clara may have been married to Charles E. Mead before her marriage to Theodore. I agree this is very likely. The girls are named Mead, Emily lived with Charles's parents, Reuben and Sarah (Reynolds) Mead, and Anna with Charles's aunt Eunice. Clara Holly lived with Anna in 1910, and is identified as her mother in the census. Anna signed Clara's death certificate. Anna and her husband Frank are buried in Roxbury Cemetery next to Eunice M. and Alfred Reynolds. Eunice was the sister of Reuben. I will look for further information on this.3
In household1850She appeared in the household of Alvah Miller in the census 1850 in Rye, Westchester County, New York. Alvah is listed as age 39, Shoemaker, with Nancy, age38, Clara, age 18, Lewis, age 17, James age 12, and Ann, age 2. (This may be the family of Clara Miller, but not sure. This may be his second wife, if so, because Clara's mother was listed as Eliza on her death certificate. however, based on preliminary information on the family of Jared Loder, it is posssible that Eliza and Nancy Jane were the same person.)
Marriage1851Charles E Mead and she were married in 1851 in Greenwich, Fairfield County, Connecticut, (It is very possible that Charles was the first husband of Clara, before she married Theodore.)4

May 1870, age 30, single, Farm Hand.8
In household28 May 1910She appeared in the household of Franklin Nathaniel Weed in the census 28 May 1910 at Roxbury Rd. in Stamford, Fairfield County, Connecticut. Franklin is listed as Head, age 54, first marriage, married 26 years, born in CT, parents born in CT, Farmer.

Mother-in-law Clara Holly, age 78, widowed, 9 children, 6 living, born in New York and parents born in New York.9
Death28 March 1912She died on 28 March 1912 at Roxbury Rd in Stamford, Fairfield County, Connecticut, Bureau of Vital Statistics Death Certificate issued 13 June 1989 states her birthplace was Lewisboro, NY (So. Salem), father Alvah Miller, mother Eliza Loder. Undertaker, Brady & Chadeau, Stamford. Name of informant: Mrs. Frank Weed, Stamford, Conn.10,11
Obituary28 March 191228 March 1912, Stamford, Fairfield County, Connecticut, Roxbury Obituary:. "Highly Respected in the Neighborhood: Mrs. Mary L. [crossed out, handwritten in Clara] Holly of Roxbury, 80 years of age, died this morning, as the result of burns received yesterday, while lighting a kitchen fire in the home of her daughter, Mrs. Frank Weed. She is survivied by five children.

Mrs. Holly was a widow, her husband having died four years ago. Since that time she lived at the home of her daughter where her death occurred. About 11:30 a.m. yestserday, Mrs. Weed was at the parsonage of the Methodist Church, to help other women who were tidying up the house, making it ready for occupancy by the minister. Mr. Weed left the house for a few moments, to get kindling wood to start the kitchen fire. In his absence, Mrs. Holly determined to get the fire going, and thrusting some paper in the stove, put in what few pieces of wood she could find, and lighted a match. The supposition is that the fire did not burn rapidly enough to suit her, and that she kneedled on the floor to blow at the blaze. It is thought that a shawl which was thrown about her shoulders took fire in this way. When Mr. Weed ran into the house in response to her screams of pain, the burning shawl was on the floor, but she had been badly burned about the head, arms and hands. Her hair was practically burned from her head. Dr. Godfrey was summoned from Stamford, and did all the was possible for her relief.

Mrs. Holly was born in Greenwich [note: this appears to be an error], and spent her younger days there. The latter part of her life was spent in Roxbury, and she made many friends among the people of the neighborhood. Always in the best of health and spirits in spite of her age, the deceased was a regular attendant at church and took an active part in church work.

The surviving members of the family are three daughters -- Mrs. Frank Weed of Roxbur, Mrs. Chauncey Scott of Coscob, and Mrs. George Morrell of Mianus -- and two sons, Arthur of Mianus and Frank of Norwalk."
Effie McCallum, great-granddaughter of Clara, noted on her copy that the given name is wrong, should be Clara, not Mary, and that she was not born in Greenwich, but in South Salem, New York. She also noted that Mrs. Frank Weed is Anne Mead Weed.3,12
Burial1912She was buried in 1912 at First Congregational Church Cemetery, Plot 85, Grave 6, 108 Sound Beach Ave., Old Greenwich, in Greenwich, Fairfield, Connecticut. Stone photographed Aug 2005, HK. Plot cards says age at death 81, date of birth 1831.10,13

Mrs. Etta Holly Morrell, 97, of 211 Valley Rd., Cos Cob, died at her home on Saturday morning. She was a life resident of Greenwich. The daughter of the late Theodore Holly and Clara Wicks Holly, Mrs. Morrell is survived by a daughter, Mrs. John Foley of Port Chester, and by several nephews and nieces.
During the days before her marriage, Mrs. Morrell used to walk across a floating bridge, near where the Mianus River bridge is today. The regular bridge had burned down. She especially liked to walk to the old Riverside Chapel.
She had no particular advice for a long life but she never drank or smoked and she liked to take long walks. Relatives said that she was never known to have an argument with anyone during her long adult life.
Until she broke her hip after falling at her home in August, Mrs. Morrell enjoyed good health. Guests at her July 10 birthday party remembered she had very few wrinkles in her face, although 97. At that time, she talked about the old days--when eggs were 15 cents a dozen and when a customer could buy six loaves of bread for 25 cents. That was around 50 years ago, she said.
She belonged to no organizations except those of her church. Services will be held from the Frank M. Reilly Funeral Residence at 10 a.m. tomorrow with the Rev. Dr. Vincent Daniels officiating.
