Mr. David Housel, an old gentleman, aged 78 years, died on Wednesday, Nov. 4, of dropsy. He leaves a wife and two children to mourn his death. His remains were taken to the Forest Hill Cemetery in Union County, for interment.

NOTE: A separate obituary has also been found in the "Keystone Gazette" of 13 NOV 1891 which indicates his burial at 'Paris Hill Cemetery in Union County'. Findagrave has no reference to a Paris Hill Cemetery in Union County, nor has any other historical reference to an actual cemetery by this name in Union county been found.

" , Mary ; 54; Keeping House; ; PA

Mary's children seem to be:
- Juliet HOUSEL b. 1841, who married James KITTLE. She remarried to a MEASE
- Elisabeth Jane HOUSEL b. 1848, who married Peter STRUBLE.
- John W. HOUSEL b. 29 JAN 1850
- Mary E. HOUSEL b. 22 JAN 1853

NOTE: Both John and Mary died prior to 1859, hence their father's obituary only lists two children.
