MRS. AGNES TINDALL
On Tuesday, March 19, 1935, the sprit of Mrs. Agnes G. Tindall took its flight to her Maker. She was nearly fifty years a member of the Danville congregation in Iowa. Born Scotch Covenanter stock in 1844, she was always interested in the church and its mission to the world. Her early years in her native Edinburgh were given to church and Sabbath school work, and many children in the poor districts of that city owe whatever religious training they received to her.
At the age of twenty-three she went to Chatton, England, to assume the responsibilities of pastoral helper to her uncle, the Rev. David Young, for forty years pastor of the Chatton Presbyterian church. In the thirteen years of her service there she endeared herself to the membership and to all residents of the community, and even after fifty-five years there are still those in Chatton who remember her many charitable acts.
In May, 1880, she was married to James Tindall, of Broomhouse, Chatton. They sailed immediately for America, settling on the farm that continued to be Mrs. Tindallís home until 1911, when she moved to Toledo, Iowa, and Chicago for a period of three years. It was at the old farm home now occupied by her son, Adam, that she died. Mr. Tindall passed away in May, 1903.
Mrs. Tindall has made her home with her children in the old community since 1914. These have ministered to her every need during a period of semi-invalidism preceding her death. Her interests in religious things continued throughout the years of her American sojourn. Early in the eighties she united with the Adaville congregation. She served for many years as church organist and as a teacher in the Sabbath school. In 1916 Miss Vera Blinn organized the Womenís Missionary society and at its first meeting Mrs. Tindall was named president. Five years ago she gave up that office to younger hands.
She was buried beside her husband in the family plot in Adaville cemetery. Three sons and three grandsons acted as pallbearers. The services were in charge of her pastor, Rev. N. A. Hollingshead. Assisting the pastor were Rev. S. M. Zike, of Moville, a former pastor and two neighboring pastors. She is survived by six children, eighteen grandchildren, three great-grandchildren, one sister, Mrs, K. Y. Pringle, of Edinburgh.
