Coming to Sumter in the early 50's
Mrs. Ard SSW its gradual growth from
the small hamlet of Sumterville into
the present important city of Sumter.
She was probably the last survivor of
the "old timers." Her marriage here
in 1857 was the first to be celebrated
in the Episcopal mission of the Holy
Comforter, and her death removes the
last of the thirty original communi?
cants of the parish. Of quiet and un?
assuming manner Mrs. Ard endeared
herself to the circle of friends so for?
tunate as to know her, and her na?
tive Irish wit made her ever ready to
see the humorous side of life, and
help lighten its dark spots. A void is
left in the hearts of those near and
dear to her which can never be fill?
