Birth: Apr. 27, 1820, Germany
Death: Jun. 18, 1872
Liberty Township
Wabash County
Indiana, USA

Age 52 yrs 1 mo 21 days

Elizabeth Brane, wife of Peter Brane, died in Wabash Co., Ind., on the 18th day of June, 1872, aged 52 years. Sister Brane, in her youth, was converted at a camp-meeting on Bro. C. Staley's land in the state of Maryland. From that period until the time of her death, she lived "soberly, righteously, and godly." As a wife, she had few equals; as a mother, she was most affectionate and kind; as a neighbor, she was benevolent, sympathic, and obliging. She was the mother of thirteen children, one of whom, in its infancy passed away. She was afflicted for several years. During the latter part of her illness her sufferings were very severe; but she evidenced much patience and a firm and unflinching trust in God. She enjoyed religious associations much, and was ever delighted with the visits of God's ministers. The loss to her companion, children and friends is very great; but she has gained exceedingly. L.W. Matthews
