ISAAC BROSIUS, SR.

Jefferson County lost one of her pioneer settlers in the death of Isaac Brosius, Sr., of Ringgold township, who died January 22, at the grand old age of 90 years and 91 days. Mr. Brosius was born in Northumberland county, Pa., October 23, 1822, and in his mother's arms was carried to Jefferson county, where his father died while young Isaac was about 14 years of age.

He married Miss Catherine Hinderliter, and moved to the then forests of Ringgold township to clear off land for a farm, where he reared his family. The happy couple were blessed by the birth of five sons and five daughters, all of whom grew to maturity and were married.

On February 1, 1886, his life was gloomed by the death of his wife. He later married Mrs. Lena Snyder, with whom he also lived a happy life until 1907, when his second wife also died. His life being saddened a second time, his nephew, Mr. and Mrs. John Shrauger, then moved into the house with him, to care for him the remainder of his life.

Mr. Brosius joined the Lutheran church in his youth, and remained a devout christian in that faith. He is survived by four sons and four daughters as follows: John, Daniel, Henry and Jacob Brosius, and Mrs. J. A. Geist, Mrs. Jacob Stahlman, Mrs. Elias Neese, and Mrs. Isaac Boddorf, Jr. He is also survived by one brother, one sister, 36 grand children, 88 great grand children, and two great, great grand children.

ISAAC BROSIUS, SR. A PIONEER SETTLER, DEAD

Jefferson county has lost one of her most esteemed citizens, and a pioneer settler in the death of Isaac Brosius, Sr., of Ringgold township, who died January 22 (1913) at the grand old age of 90 years and 91 days.

Mr. Brosius was born in Northumberland County, Pa., October 23, 1822, and in his mother's arms was carried to Jefferson county, where his father died while a young Isaac was but 14 years of age. He then was compelled to make his own way in the world, which he earnestly began by hiring out at 25 cents a day to earn money and pay his father's funeral expenses.

After years of honest labor this was accomplished, with enough money ahead, with which for a start, he thought himself able to support a family of his own. He then married Miss Catherine Hinderliter, and moved to the then forests of Ringgold township to clear off the land for a farm, where he reared a family. The happy couple were blessed by the birth of five sons and five daughters, all of which grew to maturity and were married. On February 1, 1886, his life was gloomed by the death of his wife. He later married Mrs. Lena Snyder, with whom he also lived a happy life, until 1907, when his second wife also died. His life being saddened a second time and not caring to marry again, his nephew, Mr. and Mrs. John Shauger, then moved into the house with him, to care for him the remainder of his life.

Mr. and Mrs. Shrauger are being complimented by everyone for the careful attention given to the then old and feeble man, and the surviving children are expressing their heartfelt gratitude towards them for the tender care of their father.

Mr. Brosius joined the Lutheran Church in his youth and remained a devout Christian, in that faith, to his dying moment, and lived long enough to assist in the erection of three different church buildings on the same ground. He always occupied one of the church pews, even to the last year of his life and will be greatly missed, both in church and in his community.

When his end came, he commanded his soul into the hands of his maker and passed into a quiet and peaceful sleep, with Mr. and Mrs. J. Shrauger, Mr. and Mrs. Jacob Stahlman, Elias Neese and Jesse Brosius by his bedside.

Mr. Brosius is survived by four sons and four daughters as follows: John, Daniel, Henry and Jacob Brosious, and Mrs. J. A. Geist, Mrs. Jacob Stahlman, Mrs. Elias Neese and Mrs. Issac Boddorf, Jr. He is also survived by one brother, one sister, 36 grandchildren, 88 great-grandchildren and two great-great-grandchildren.
