The American Friend
Nordyke -- Lydia J. Nordyke, wife of David Nordyke and daughter of Abel and Rhoda (Johnson) Thornberry [Thronburg(h)], fell asleep in Jesus at her home in Richmond, Indiana, Eight month 10th, 1898, aged 79 years, 7 months and 9 days. She was a life long member with Friends, and was a devoted member of East Main Street Meeting. She attended the 20th anniversary of this meeting on sixth month 26th, and testified to her faith in Christ.

She was the the great-granddaughter of Thomas Bales [Beals], who was the first Friend minister who crossed the Alleghenies.
