BATTY, Julia S. Obituary, Feb. 19, 1919

The death of Miss Julia S. Batty, aged 84 years, occurred Thursday, Feb. 13, at her home in Easton, after a lingering illness. The deceased was the daughter of the late Stephen and Rebecca M. Batty, and is survived by one sister, Mary A. Batty, and one brother, Joseph M. Batty of Greenwich. She was a woman very much esteemed and respected in the community in which she had spent the greater part of her life and where her kindly ways and cheerful disposition had made her many friends. In her early life Miss Batty was a successful teacher, and at one time was the principal of the primary department of the Friends seminary in Easton. Many of her former pupils still speak of her with great respect and affection. Her interest in education continued throughout her life and she was the first woman to be elected a school trustee in her native town. When her health failed she bore with patience and Christian fortitude the many months of weakness and suffering. The funeral was held at her home on Saturday, Rev. F. W. Bevan officiating. The interment was at Elmwood cemetery at Schaghticoke. [The Greenwich Journal, Greenwich, NY, February 19, 1919, p. 7.]
