Death Notice
In Chester Township, on Friday evening, the 2d inst., EMMA ANDERSON, relict of James Anderson, U.S.N., in the fifty fifth year of her age. For the last thirty years, Mrs. Anderson was an active and consistent member of the Episcopal Church of this Borough. In her intercourse, both social and religious, she was highly esteemed for her kindness of heart and all the graces that adorn a christian character. Her funeral sermon was preached by the Rev. Mr. Talbot, from a text set apart by herself, weeks previous to her departure for a better world.

Graveyard Survey WPA Project Vol. A at DCHS provides confirmation that Emma was the "relick of James Anderson" and adds her birth date as 07 Nov 1808.
