BEERY. - On the 10th of August, in Branch Co., Mich., of a lingering illness, Sarah Ann Keller, wife of Abraham G. Beery. She was born in Juanita county, Pa., on the 14th of April 1823. She removed with her parents from there and lived for a time in Wayne Co., Ohio. From there her parents removed again to Portage county, and from there again to Fairfield county. Here she was married to Abraham Beery, her surviving husband on the 14th of November 1839. After living in Hocking, Fairfield and Allen counties for 26 years they removed to Branch Co., Mich., where they resided to the time of her death. Their union was blessed with 12 children, 6 of whom are still living. There are also 20 grandchildren of which fifteen are still living.

She (with her husband), united with the Mennonite Church about two years after their marriage, and she has been a constant, faithful member, manifesting in her walk and conversation, a warm devotion to her Lord and Master. During the latter years of her life she suffered much affliction, and many times her life was despaired of. Yet a kind heavenly Father still lengthened her days. Through her many trials and afflictions she was led nearer to God, and with patience, submission and a desire to depart - she waited and longed for the hour of her departure. She said she had prayed God to spare her life until her children had grown up, and now that her prayers had been answered, and she had passed through so many fires of affliction, she did not want any to wish her to get well; she wanted to go and be with Jesus. She was buried on the 12th, followed to the grave by a large concourse of relatives and friends. Services were conducted by J. F. Funk, of Elkhart, Ind., assisted by Bro. C. Naffziger, of Pretty Prairie, and Rev. Bonney, of Bronson.
