The Denison Review
Wednesday, January 19, 1876
At the residence of Mr. Kuhn, on Sunday night, January 16th, Mrs. Catherine Laub, mother of Mr. H.C. Laub, in her seventy-sixth year of age, of general debility and old age.
Mrs. Laub was born on the first day of January 1800-a first child of the nineteenth century. She became a member of the church in 1853, upwards of fifty years age and remained faithful to the end. She was left a widow with nine children, and had a hard struggle to bring them up. The funeral services were held on Tuesday afternoon at 1 o'clock PM by the Rev. Mr. Fagily, assisted by the sisters Nind and Prescott. The funeral was largely attended-the church being filled, and some twenty carriages followed the hearse to the grave. The services were impressive, and Mrs. Prescott's testimony at Mrs. Laub's last experiences was most affecting.
