The Rochester Sentinel - Friday, September 3, 1897:
Mary FISHER BARNHART was born in Ohio nearly 72 years ago. She came to Indiana with her parents at the age of 8 years. They located near Mexico, Miami county, on a farm where she continued to live until her marriage to Elder Jacob BARNHART in 1846. They then purchased forest land at Twelve Mile, Cass county, which was developed into a beautiful farm home. Here their children were born and reared and to them it remained the most attractive place on earth until the death of the husband and father, when the deceased removed to Mexico. She was the mother of ten children, six of whom are living. They are Mrs. Asbury HOFFMAN, of Macy; Mrs. Maria LEFFEL, of Fletchers Lake; Mrs. Emma RUPLE, of North Liberty; George BARNHART, of Hoover's, Cass county; Marvin E. BARNHART, of Chicago, and H. A. BARNHART, of this city.
Mrs. Barnhart was a devout member of the German Baptist church from her youth, and "Aunt Mary," as she was known to a vast community, was loved by all for her hospitality, her charity, her motherly concern for the sick and needy and her ever sweetly cheerful life. She became afflicted with rheumatism in her girlhood and was always afterward a lame cripple. She was stricken with paralysis nearly three years ago and twice since, and has been a terrible sufferer for two months as a result of this affliction. She quietly sank to rest Monday, at her home in Mexico. The funeral occurred Wednesday afternoon with interment in the Mexico cemetery beside her husband.
