Jan 31st, in Elkhart Co., Ind., Sister CATHARINE, widow of Christian CHRISTOPHEL, deceased, aged 84 years, 8 months and 26 days. She was buried at Yellow Creek Meeting House on the 2nd of Feb. Funeral services, at the house, by M. Kreider; at the Meeting House, by J. Waldner P. Tshetter, from Russia, and H. Shaum. The deceased Sister was born in Alsace, France, and came, in her younger years, to Germany. In 1841, with her husband and youngest child, emigrated to Ohio, where two of her sons, John and Jacob, had already come one year before. As they were poor they had to leave three children in Germany; but by the aid of the Brethren in Mahoning and Columbiana Conuties (sic), they came some time afterwards. The deceased could truly say: If our days by reason of strength, are fourscore years, yet is their (sic) strength, labor and sorrow. We hope she is now at rest in heaven.
