Stahly-Near Nappanee. Ind, of dropsy, Henry Stahly died Dec. 14 1894. aged 84 years 10 months. He was united in marriage to Magdelena Erisman in 1834, lived in matrimony 45 years. His wife preceded him to the spirit world 15 years ago, the first of this month. He was born in Kaisers Lautern, Germany Feb. 1810, emigrated to America in 1835 and settled in Wayne County Ohio; came to Elkhart Co, Ind in 1846. He has resided here 48 years, has seen his children and grandchildren grow to manhood and womanhood, and the dense forest that once covered this beautiful country fall before the pioneers ax. He was a consistent brother in the Amish Mennonite denomination, and while we pay the last tribute to him we realize that his seat will be vacant in church and at home. The surviving members are one brother, five sons, one daughter, 36 grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren. Buried at the brick church on the 16th. Funeral services by Jas H McGowen in English and David Burkholder in German, fron Job 14:14.--------Herald of truth Vol XXXII, No 2 15 Jan. 1895
