Obituary:
Isaac Rorer died suddenly at his home near Otelia on last Thursday morning. Although he had been in feeble health for some time, no immediate danger was apprehended, but on Wednesday evening he had a severe chill and was stricken with paralysis about three o'clock in the morning, after which he lived but six hours. Deceased was born Aug. 17, 1823, in Germany Valley on the farm now owned and occupied by his uncle, Joseph Miller, and had been a resident of Shirley Township all his life. He had been a consistent member of the German Baptist Church for more than twenty-five years, and was ready for the summons when it came, having expressed a desire to be taken if it were the Lord's will rather than left to suffer longer. At his request his remains were laid to rest in the cemetery at Wakefield's Chapel, the funeral taking place on Saturday. Rev. John Shope, of Hill Valley, preached an appropriate sermon. An invalid wife and six of nine children survive him, - Mrs. E. Withington, David, Adam, and Harry Rorer, of Otelia, Samuel of Petersburg, and William, of Orbisonia; also three sisters, Mrs. Adam Crouse of this place, Mrs. Samuel Crouse and Mrs. Enoch Panebaker of Juniata County.
