CHRISTOPHEL - On the 24th of January, 1893, in Harrison Twp., Elkhart Co., Ind., Cora Esti, youngest daughter of Jonas and Salome Christophel, aged 3 years, 3 months and 14 days. She came to her death by being scalded with hot water which her brother had taken from the tea kettle and placed on the floor. She fell and accidentally spilled the water over her arm, chest and limbs, from the effects of which she died, after 14 hours of suffering. She was a dearly beloved child, and her sad death caused deep and heart felt sorrow in the hearts of all. She was conscious to the last. During the night she whispered, "I am going home," and repeating she said again, "I am going home." In the morning when her brothers and sister went to school she spoke to them her last "good-bye," and in a very short time the frail spirit went home to be with Jesus. The burial took place on the 26th. Funeral services were held by John F. Funk from 2 Cor. 4:17, 18, and N. Metzler from Amos 8:2. God bless the sorrowing parents and children and keep them all for the glorious inheritance of God in heaven.
