  • Notes 
    • Census of White County: 1870...
      Civil War Veteran, Warren Co.,Company "A".

      It is curious that he appears as "Zwingle" after the civil war. Did he want to identify himself more closely with The Protestant Reformation? Church affliliation was centerpoint to all social life during the mid-eighteen hundreds in the South...DAH

      Mrs. Maude Woods Zwingle, wife of Rev. C. M. Zwingle, who years ago was a prominent leader in the denomination's foreign missions work, died in Nashville, Tenn., November 26. She had been ill many years and was bedfast much of the time.
      Her funeral was held at the Edgefield church, Nashville, of which she was a member, with the pastor, Rev. Charles R. Matlock in charge, assisted by Rev. E. R. Ramer of McKenzie, Tenn.
      Besides her husband, Rev. C. M. Zwingle, other immediate survivors include a daughter, Mrs. Madelle McCoy, Bells, Tenn., two sons, Dr. J. L. Zwingle, president of Park College, Kansas City, Mo., and Earl Zwingle, San Francisco.

      Mrs. Zwingle was an active leader in many phases of church work while her health permitted. She was an able Bible student and taught Sunday school classes for many years and was a leader in foreign mission work in local, presbyterial, synodical, and convention levels. For a number of years she was editor of the Women's Department in THE CUMBERLAND PRESBYTERIAN.
