From the Christian Ambassador, Auburn NY, 27 Sep 1851
Deaths-In Sacket's Harbor, N. Y. on the 13th inst., Mrs. JERUSHA MATHER AUSTIN, consort of Mr. Benjamin Austin, and mother of Rev. J. M. Austin, aged 88 years. After a sojourn of more than four score years on this earth, this venerable mother in Israel has passed to her home in heaven. During her long career, she bore an irreproachable reputation as a wife, a mother and a neighbor. Her life was distinguished for love of religion, a kind and charitable spirit, great benevolence of heart, and uncommon cheerfulness of disposition. For more than thirty years she has been an unwavering believer in Jesus as the Saviour of the world; and in her daily walk endeavored to reduce to practice the teachings of this beautiful faith. It was her comfort, her joy, in life and her consolation in the hour of death.
The deceased was a native of Lyme, Conn., from whence, more than fifty years since, she removed with her venerable husband, who still survives her, to north-western New York, then nearly a wilderness. She has left behind, to mourn her departure, a husband, six children (Anna, Frances, Mercy, Benjamin, John & Seth), forty-three grandchildren, and several great-grandchildren. Her funeral took place on the 15th inst., and a sermon appropriate to the occasion was delivered by Rev. Pitt Morse.
Jerusha Mather Stephenson Austin, was a widow with one child (Daniel) when she married Benjamin Austin in 1797.
