Birth: May 5, 1863
Death: May 2, 1934

Gospel Herald - Vol. XXVII, No. 14 - July 5, 1934
Alger. - Elizabeth Frances Alger was born May 5, 1863, near Edom, Va.; died at her home May 2, 1934; aged 70 y. 11 m. 27 d. She had been in failing health for several years and death was due to complications. She was the only child of the late John and Barbara (Brunk) Brenneman. On Dec. 9, 1880, she was married to Jacob Alger who preceded her in death 22 years. Excepting a few years of her early childhood, her whole life was spent near Broadway, Va. She accepted Christ in early life and united with the Mennonite Church in which faith she remained steadfast. The services of God's house were very precious to her, and she longed to go to church after her failing strength forbade. She was ever industrious, self-sacrificing, and much concerned for the spiritual welfare of her children and others. She has gone on before. May it be our happy lot to meet her, in God's own time, on the other shore. She is survived by 3 children (Barbara, John, and Verdie) and 6 grandchildren. Funeral services were held May 4 at Zion Church conducted by J. L. Stauffer, Lewis Shank. and P. E. Shank. Text, I Pet. 1:3,4. Burial in adjoining cemetery
