Our Southwest Saville correspondent sends us the following obituary; Henry Ricedorf, an aged and respected citizen of Saville township, died of paralysis, at the home of his daughter, Mrs. S.K. Dean, of Newport, Pa. He leaves a wife and nine children to mourn their loss. Mr. Ricedorf was the father of twelve children, viz; Mrs. Fredrick Rempfer, of Saville township; John W. of Bridgeport, Nebraska; Amanda C., at home; Mrs. D.T. Thomas, of Blain; Mrs. S.K. Dean, of Newport; Mrs. R.H. Weidlar of Philadelphia, Pa.; Mrs. Isaiah Weaver of Loysville; Levi H., of Harrisburg; Mrs. W.E. Bailor, of Saville township; and Mrs. William Reisinger, Harry W. and Calvan H. who have preceded him to their eternal home. He was also the grandfather of twenty children.

He was born in Saville township, October 30, 1827, and lived there until his death, which occurred January 11, 1901. In 1853 he was married to Isabella Weibley, of the same township. He was a tailor by trade, and engaged in that business from 1848 to 1864, when he enlisted in the Civil War and served until its close. Since that time he has been an active farmer.

The deceased was a consistent member of the Reformed church for about forty-eight years, and was an industrious citizen, good neighbor, kind husband and a loving father.
