Obituary (received from Richard Jolly, August 2001): One of the richest endowments of the grace of God sometimes appears in the lives of those who for a period are called aside to rest from their former activities. These are they who illustrate in modern life that ancient type of communion with God which Enoch enjoyed. Such a one has just entered into her reward and the news of her death will quicken grateful and tender memories in many hearts. Miss Harriet Dusenbery was born in Nassau, NY, on the 14th of December, 1814, and was married to William P. Gale on June 9th, 1843. With her husband she came west that year, traveling on the Erie Canal as far as Buffalo, NY, and then by boat to Detroit and by stage to Monroe. During her long life here she combined in a practical way some of the most attractive and noble qualities of Christian character. From her early years she was a member of the church and united with the Presbyterian church in this city on the 6th day of April,1856, by letter and was ever a faithful member. Mrs. Gale was a careful and prayerful student of God's Word, and therein lay the secret of her wonderful confidence in God, and her winsome and helpful nature. Her funeral was held at her late home on Monroe St. Saturday afternoon, Rev. A.W. Allen officiating. At the beginning of the service he read the Portuguese Hymn, which was a favorite with Mrs. Gale. The remarks were based on the words, "I will fear no evil, for thou art with me" and the service closed with the reading of "The Christian's Good Night." Mrs. Gale leaves a daughter, Mrs. A.B. Consor, and two sons, Prof. A.W. Gale of this city and Eugene Gale at Dallas, Texas.

The funeral services will be held this Friday afternoon at 2:00 o'clock from the home of her son, Sidney E. Younglove, on North Macomb street and will be conducted by Rev. Harvey G. Pierce, of Tabernacle church, Detroit. Mrs. Younglove was the daughter of Samuel and Martha Gale and was born in Monroe County, on the farm where the county house now stands, Oct 15, 1834, and thus had attained the age of 75 years, 5 months and 14 days when she died.

Mrs. Younglove had been a patient suffered for many years, the past year being especially severe. About a year ago she fell while coming down stairs and dislocated and otherwise injured her shoulder. The shock shattered her nervous system so that she failed to fully recover from the accident, her health declined steadily and the constitution that had withstood the vicissitudes of many years, gave way to the inroads of advanced years and illness. Her beautiful character and Christian life won for her a host of friends and, while quiet and reserved in nature, in her unostentatious way she accomplished much good during her life.

Obituary (Received from Richard Jolly, August 2001): A Terrible Death:
The people of Monroe were startled last Friday morning to learn that Henry Younglove , a resident of the county until a few months ago, had died in Detroit, Michigan, Thursday night of Hydrophobia, after several hours of undescribable pain and suffering. It appears that little more than a year ago, while living on his farm in Raisinville Township, MI, he was bitten upon the hand and upon the arm about half way between the wrist and the elbow by a pet Rat Terrier. He experienced no particular discomfort from the bites until last October, when the arm became considerably inflamed to the shoulder. It was pronounced a case of ersupelis but for several weeks he was very much depressed with brooding over matter and frequently expressed a fear of dieing with rabies. His mind then felt easier on the subject until two months ago when again he became considerably depressed and soon after the dog bit him again upon the same hand between the thumb and forefinger, but one tooth barely breaking the skin. The dog was not of a vicious nature and the biting was done in play. He never showed symptoms of the terrible disease. The symptoms did not show until 9 o'clock Wednesday evening when he was seized with a strong aversion for water. He grew alarming worse during the night, had some convulsions and early in the morning a doctor was called. After ascertaining the condition, he called in other medical assistance. The man had spasms during the day, each being more severe than its predecessor. Between them he would act rational and apologized for his actions when the convulsions were upon him. Toward night
another of the marked symptoms, an extreme thrist manifested itself and about 10 o'clock he was seized with the last most frightful convulsion, when he felt it coming on he was sitting in a chair and remarked to his son Sidney "I can not stand this" and uttered a piercing shriek. A moment later he let another frightful scream and it took four people to keep him under control. He was placed on the floor face downwards and for 32 minutes the struggle with him was terrific. He would request to be let up, saying he would not hurt anyone, and when his request was not complied with he would threaten to kill his attendants. At the end of the time mentioned he became quiet and was turned upon his back, when he gasped twice and his agony was at an end. The doctor ascribed no significance to the second bite, but believed the whole trouble to have been from the first bite, over a year ago. The body after death underwent the change peculiar to the disease and the brain was somewhat congested. The rear portion of it and the upper part of the spinal column were removed and will be subjected to examination to ascertain for a certainty if rabies was the cause of death. The doctors are satisfied that such is the case and the examination is being made in the interest of science. The remains were brought to Monroe, MI, Saturday and the funeral services held at the M.E. Church on Sunday Afternoon were largely attended. Date of Death 4-27-1887. Henry fought in the War and was wounded in the Battle of Richmond in 1864.
