Elenora "Nelly" Neukirch Bitting
Birth: Sep. 7, 1801
Berks County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Oct. 28, 1885
Berks County
Pennsylvania, USA

"A mother dear, a mother kind,
Has gone and left us all behind.
We watched her sufferings, heard her sighs
With trembling hearts and weeping eyes;
But now she calmly sleeps at last,
All pain, all grief, all suffering past."
-Reading Eagle, Oct. 28, 1885

"Mrs Elenora Bitting, aged 83 years, died at the residence of her son-in-law, Emerson Kline, 833 North street, shortly after 10 a.m. to-day. Deceased was in good health up to 3 weeks ago when she visited friends in Phoenixville. On her return she could scarcely walk home from the depot, her feet being very much swollen. She then took to her bed and suffered with dropsy and an affliction of the lungs.
Yesterday her grandson, Willie Kline, was buried. Prior to the funeral, deceased made a request to see the remains, and the coffin containing the body of the boy was carried to her bedside. She wept freely, but was too weak to talk. The boy was a great favorite and his death preyed greatly on her mind.
Deceased was the widow of Jacob Bitting.
Mrs Bitting was born in Exeter and was a daughter of John Frederick and Mary Newkirk; was the oldest of the family of eight children and was the only surviving member of the family.
She resided in Reading 50 years and was the mother of 10 children, 4 of which survive as follows: Israel Bitting, of Perry County; Annapolis Bitting, Mrs Elizabeth Michael and Mrs Loveria Kline, this city. Her father was a prominent farmer of Exeter and owned 300 acres of land. Sixty-seven grandchildren and 75 great grandchildren survive."
