Mrs. Amanda Stottlemyer Obituary from Noblesville Daily Ledger

Amanda Gaver, daughter of Peter and Caroline Gaver, was born in Frederick County, Maryland, June 19, 1852 and died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Rowena Moore, three miles north of Lapel, May 17, 1924, age 71 years, 10 months and 28 days, having lived more than her allotted three score and ten years, in a world of many changes and a world of many cares; and we now have the assurance to believe that she has entered through the gates into the City where there is no more death, neither sorrow nor pain. She was one of a family of eleven children, four sisters of whom are yet living: Mrs. Lauretta Kinna, Mrs. Letitia Eccard and Mrs. Clara Lizer, all of Maryland; and Mrs. Mary Stottlemyer, of Anderson.

She was married to Aaron Stottlemyer in Maryland, and two years after their marriage they left the State and came to Indiana, to Fortville. They had little of this world's goods at that time, but both in good health and were ambitious. They lived in one of the log cabins of the pioneer days for a time, after several changes, in 1900, bought a farm of ninety acres three miles southwest of Lapel. This they took delight in improving. Ten children were born to them, and the family has always been known throughout the community as one of the most prosperous and highly respected. The husband, Aaron Stottlemyer, died two years ago last February.

One daughter, Mrs. Maud DeWitt, died several years ago; the nine children living are: Elmer Stottlemyer, Mrs. Mollie Huffman, Mrs. Lewellyn Turner, Parker, Harry, Lee and Richard Stottlemyer, Mrs. Rowena Moore and Mrs. Linnie Presser. All live within a radius of a few miles of Lapel. Two sons were in overseas service during the World War: Lee Stottlemyer in the Artillery; Richard Stottlemyer, in the Infantry. Two grandchildren were in the service: Ernest Huffman, at Camp Custer, Mich.; and Raymond E. Stottlemyer, with the Training Camp at Bloomington, Ind. Mrs. Stottlemyer leaves twenty-six grandchildren and fourteen great-grandchildren.
