Birth: Oct. 25, 1842

Death: May 6, 1905
Los Angeles County

Mary Ellen Bennett, wife of J. H. W. Bennett, died at 3:30 p.m., May 5, at her home on Myrtle avenue of locomoter ataxia, after a lingering illness of more than a year. She leaves, besides her husband, one daughter, Mrs. Grace Ferris, and two grandsons, Masters Holmes and Paul Ferris.

Mrs. Bennett was the daughter of the late Rev. Wm. and Lucinda Uhl and sister of Jonathan Uhl of Shenandoah, Iowa, E. C. Uhl of Monrovia and Mrs. Z. D. Mathuss of Los Angeles. She was born in Aleghaney {Allegany} county, Maryland, Oct. 25, 1842, and was therefore, 62 years, 7 months, and 20 days of age when she peacefully fell asleep in Jesus, surrounded by her family and her brother and sister.

In 1862 she was married in Dixon, Illinois. Her husband survives her. Here, in early life, she was confirmed in the Lutheran church, of which her father was pastor, but on removing to Shenandoah, Iowa, in 1880, where there was no Lutheran church, she united with the Congregational church, and on her removal to Monrovia in 1895 united with the Presbyterian church, of which she was a member at the time of her death. From childhood until her last sickness she was an active church worker and all her life a true consistent christian. She was an enthusiastic worker in the cause of temperance for over thirty-five years. During her long and painful illness her faith was strong and beautiful. No one visited her during this time without receiving new strength to meet life's difficulties. Her loss will be keenly felt by the many who knew and loved her.
