Bechtel - Oct 20th, in Elkhart Co, Ind, of consumption, Sister Barbara Bechtel, wife of John Bechtel, aged 53 years and 8 months.

She was buried at Shaum's burying-ground, where services were conducted by James Culbertson and John F Funk, from 2 Sam 12:23.

She leaves a sorrowing husband and a family of children to mourn their loss, but they need not mourn as those who have no hope, for she left us the evidences that she is gone to inherit a better country. Let us only all try to follow her good example, and when we leave this world of sorrow and suffering we may have an unfading inheritance in the land where sorrow and death can never come.
