In another column we publish the obituary of Mrs. Mary O. Miller, who died at her daughter's after several months illness last Saturday at the ripe old age of almost eighty-two. Mrs. Miller has been a member of the Methodist CHurch for over fifty years. After the services at Elm Grove, the remains were entered in Hillside Cemetery Sunday at 4 p.m. At Lafayette, Daniel Callahan, aged 13, ws drowned in the Wabash River in an attempt to rescue Leslie Madden, aged 10. At Covington W.C.B Sewell, father-in-law of United States Treasurer E.H. Nebeker died at his residence last week. He was about 80 years of age and had been a resident of that city since 1826. He was probably the largest landowner and the wealthiest man in this county. He was confined to his room, but two days, the immediate cause of his death being an attack of pneumonia. The deceased was the father of Barton Sewell, who is at the head of the National Smelting Works of Chicago. We are again called upon to announce the death of one of our long cherished citizens, Mrs. Mary Anne Miller, born in Erie County, Penn., Oct. 13, 1810, and died July 11,1891 at the residence of Mrs. J. Ridenour, fifteen miles northwest of Williamsport. The deceased had been ill for many months, but for the past three weeks has been growing more feeble, and not until one week ago, was it really known that she was so near death's door. Her husband preceded her to the other world several years ago, and since that time Mrs. Miller has made her home with Mrs. Ridenour and Clark, both of whom are daughters, who i union with numerous relatives and friends have been plunged into great sorrow by her death. The deceased became a member of the Mothodist Episcopal Church at the age of 31, in which she has been an active worker. Her charitable deeds will long be remembered by those with whom she came in contact. The funeral was held at Elm Grove with Rev. Webb officiating. The remains were interred in Hillside Cemetery, followed there by a large concourse of relatives and friends.
