Obituary:
Charlotte Roland was born in Reading, Berks Co, PA July 28, 1838. She was converted and joined the United Brethren Church at the age of twelve years. She was married to Elias Shaffer Sep 29, 1855, and in 1860 they immigrated to Whiteside Co, IL, where she again united with the United Brethren Church. In 1876 they came to Troy Mills, Linn Co, IA, where she lived until the morning of Sep 11, 1901, when she fell asleep in Jesus to awake no more in this world, aged 63 years, 1 month and 12 days. She joined the Methodist Protestant Church at Troy Mills, in 1886, and was an active, consistent member until her death. She leaves a husband, 10 children, 42 grandchildren, 3 brothers and 3 sisters, besides a host of other friends and neighbors to mourn their loss, but not as those who have no hope of a sweet by and by. She was a faithful companion, a true loving mother and a good neighbor. She will be missed in the church and in the community, but most of all in the home she left so sad and lonely. I think I her her saying, "Dear ones, meet me in heaven." In the absence of her pastor Rev S S Scull, a former pastor ___ ___ the funeral sermon to a large and sympathetic congregation. The beautiful flowers covered casket that contained the mortal remains of mother was borne to its last resting place by her five sons and one grandson.
