Jane Louisa McKinney Ege

b. 1813, d. Nov. 9, 1853, at Newvllle, Penna., and is buried beside her husband in the Big Spring Presbyterian graveyard at Newville; m. Nov. 20, 1833, Michael Peter Ege, b.

Mar. 29, 1853, at Philadelphia, Penna., son of Peter Ege, who owned the extensive furnaces at Pine Grove, and a grandson of Michael Ege, who was proprietor of the furnaces at Mount Holly, Boiling Springs and Pine Grove. Michael Peter Ege was married by the Rev. Henry Wilson, at the home of his wife in Shippens­burg, Penna. She was a woman of fine appearance and attainment's, cultured and dignified, cordial and sincere. Her husband was engaged in the iron busi­ness at Pine Grove and Laurel Forge, and at that place he and his family resided for ten years. Quite a little settlement was established in that section of the valley, and life was pleasantly spent. Within a few miles of Carlisle, they had social advantages, and were not isolated, as many were, who lived in the country districts. In 1843 they removed to Philadelphia, where Mr. Ege was appointed Surveyor of Ports in the cus­tom house, which position he held until his death. They were Presbyterian in faith, brought up their children in their belief, were both eminently fitted for usefulness, full of kindness and sympathy, warm hearted and hospitable, and died within six months of each other.
