“Died. On the 18th instant., at Frostburg, IDA BUCHANAN B., infant daughter of Aden and Isabella Clary, aged 11 months and 20 days.
Dear Ida! our grief was almost wild
For the loss of thee, our darling child;
Yet would we not bring thee back again,
Though parting with thee caused us real pain;
The tears we shed, they were nature’s tears,
But the hope we cherish, dispels our fears,
Our Savior died for the sin of all,
And to such as thee, gave a special call,
‘Suffer the little ones to come to me,
And forbid them not,’ is God’s decree.
Adieu, dear cherub then, thou hast gone home
To a land of glory, where we hope to come.”

“Death of an Estimable Lady. Mrs. Isabella B. Clary, relict of Aden Clary, deceased, died at the family residence in Frostburg Monday morning at 4:40 o’clock. Mrs. Clary was born October 19, 1814, and was therefore 63 years and 10 months old. Nearly her whole life was spent in Frostburg, having resided here since her childhood. In 1832, she married Mr. Clary, who shortly afterward erected the dwelling in which both lived until death—a period of nearly forty years. During this time they reared a family of nine children, five of whom survive—Mrs. Barney Dilley, of Cumberland; Mrs. Laura Hammill [sic], widow of the late Lewis Hammill [sic], Aden P., Eloise T., and Roderick Clary, of Frostburg. In all the walks of life Mrs. Clary won and maintained the high esteem of all who knew her. She was a faithful wife and mother, a kind neighbor and consistent Christian. She was one of the earliest communicants of the English Lutheran church of Frostburg, and held that relation when she died. Her illness was sudden and brief, attended with unconsciousness during nearly the entire period. Although surrounded by all her children at the last hour, she was insensible of the loving attentions bestowed upon her and of the demonstrations of deep grief at the last parting. The funeral took place at the English Lutheran Church, Frostburg, Tuesday afternoon at three o’clock, whence her remains were taken to the old grave yard and laid beside other members of her family. Rev. P.L. Harrison, pastor, officiating.” [FMJ 8-24-1878, p. 3]
“We are pained to learn the death of Mrs. Clary, relict of the late Aden Clary of Frostburg, in this county. Mrs. Clary was the mother of Mrs. Barney Dilley, of this city. She died at her late residence in Frostburg, at 5 o’clock yesterday morning, full of years and beloved and respected by all amidst an extensive acquaintance. Her loss will be deeply lamented.” [DAT, 8-20-1878, p. 3]
Aden Clary inherited the Clarysville Inn from his uncle, Gerrard Clary, in about 1850. Aden was one of the directors of Frostburg Gaslight Co in 1870 [Scharf, p. 1480]. He was a city councilman in 1874 [Scharf, p. 1479]. Aden converted to Catholicism and was buried in St. Michael’s Cemetery in Frostburg.
CLICE, ELIZABETH J. WHETSTONE EVEREST
(Second wife of ENOCH CLICE)
b. April 24, 1842

“The funeral of Mrs. Elizabeth J. Clice, wife of ex-Mayor Enoch Clice, took place at the Presbyterian church, of which she was a member, Sunday afternoon, a large number of friends paying by attendance the last tribute of respect. Mrs. Clice, born near Grantsville, was the eldest daughter of the late Joseph Whetstone. Nov. 2, 1865 she married Joseph J. Everest, who died several years ago and on the 10th day of December, 1894, she was married to Enoch Clice. About four months ago she underwent a surgical operation in the Johns Hopkins hospital, Baltimore, for cancer, but relief, if any, from that dreadful infliction, was only temporary. She suffered greatly, but through all maintained the fortitude of one resigned to the worst. Those who witnessed and who grieve over the painful fate which brooded over her last days are confident from the testimonies which she left of thorough preparation for death and bright expectation of life hereafter. Her husband and one daughter, Mrs. David K. Smith, nee Everest, this place, survive.” [FMJ 3-7-1896, p. 3]
