the Carroll Chronicle, Carrollton, Ohio, Friday, September 22, 1899.

Mrs. Catherine Aller, widow of the late Absalom Aller, died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Maria Keller, in Logan, Hocking County, this state, and the remains were brought here yesterday for interment in the family lot.
Mrs. Aller is the mother of Mrs. Louis R. Armstrong and Mrs. James Long of Carroll County; George H. Aller of Hudson, this state; Rev. A. T. Aller of Kansas; John Aller of North Dakota and William Aller of Chicago. She was a native of Germany, coming here with her parents when she was seven years of age. Her maiden name was Marks. Mrs. Aller was a very kindly disposed woman--a warm and true-hearted friend. She had been ill for the past year and her frail body finally wore out.

Her obituary in The Republican Standard, Carrollton, Ohio, Friday, September 22, 1899.

Elizabeth Catherine Marks was born in Hesse Darmstardt, Germany, June 17, 1820, and moved to this country with her parents at the age of fifteen. They landed at Baltimore where they lived six months and then came to Carrollton. She was married in 1843 to Absalom Aller, shortly after which they moved to the farm now owned by Louis Armstrong near town, where she lived until 1880, six years after the death of her husband when she again moved to Carrollton. In October of 1895 she went to live with her daughter, Mrs. Maria Keller, in Hocking County, with whom she remained till her death, which occurred Tuesday morning. Mrs. Aller's last sickness was only of six days duration, heart disease and old age being the cause of her death. In childhood she united with the Lutheran Church and after her marriage joined the German Reformed and later in life became a Presbyterian. The funeral took place yesterday afternoon from the residence of J. C. Butler, interment in Grandview Cemetery, Rev. J. W. Graham officiating. She was the mother of ten children: John J., of Idaho; Mrs. Armstrong, of near town; Rev. A. T. Aller, of Cawker City, Kansas; George H. Aller, of Hudson; Dr. Samuel Aller, of Continental; Mrs. Mary J. Kempf, who died in 1892; Mrs. J. J. Keller, of Hocking County; Mrs. Jas. Long, of near Carrollton; W. G. Aller, of Chicago; R. E. Aller, who died in 1878. The children from a distance who attended the funeral were: George H. Aller, wife and family, and J. J. Kellar and wife.
