NEARLY NINETY-FOUR
A Sketch of the Late Ann O. Elmer

The late Mrs. Ann O. Elmer, widow of the late Theodore Elmer, was the oldest person in Fairfield township, if not in Cumberland county. She was born May 10, 1800, belonged to the Preston family, and died March 3. The funeral services were held Tuesday morning at the home of her son, Frank F. Elmer, and she was laid away in the old burying ground of the Old Stone Church.

She was married in 1826 and was the mother of five children, of whom three survive: L.Q.C. Elmer, of Beverly, N.J.: F.F. Elmer and Mrs. Cornelia Harris, of Fairfield township. Theodore Wilson Elmer died in the late war from the effects of being in a rebel prison, leaving a widow and two children. William B. Elmer was killed in the battle of Fredericksburg.

Mrs. Elmer had twelve grandchildren, of whom six are dead, and ten living great-grandchildren.

She was born in New England Town, Fairfield Township, and had always lived in the township, and for the last twelve years with her son Frank F. Elmer.

She united with the Old Stone Church in 1820, under the ministry of Father Ogden, and always lived a consistent Christian life.
