Daughter of James Alexander HARPER and Mary STITT. Wife of John Dorris APPLEBY.

We made a note of the death of Mrs. APPLEBY in a past issue. She was the eldest daughter of James HARPER, a life long resident of Dublin township. She was a sister of James S. and Alexander HARPER, the lumberman. Mr. and Mrs. APPLEBY were married in the winter of 1862. Their children are James of Chicago, Miles of Newton Hamilton, Frank of Loudon, Speer of Altoona, Mrs. D. E. PETERSON of Mount Union and Mrs. CREE of Buffalo. She had been a member of the Presbyterian church more than 50 years. She was a good woman, a faithful wife, a loving mother, and one who was esteemed by all. Her husband is almost 80 years old and is not strong. Rev. J. E. IRVINE, pastor of the Third Presbyterian church of Altoona conducted the funeral services on Sunday, January 30 at 10 o'clock a.m.
