The deceased was born September 4, 1833, in Stuttgart, Germany, and was a little past 85 years of age at the time of her death. She came with her parents to this country in 1857. She was married July 1, 1857, to John G. Dettinger, and they located in Ohio until 1886, when they moved to a farm in French township, Adams County. In 1897 they moved to Vera Cruz, and lived there since. Mr. Dettinger died December 12, 1908.
