Many are the homes that have been made desolate during the last few months by the relentless hand of Death. Many are the scenes of sorrow that have occurred in our community. God in his wisdom has seen fit to take from us not only the aged and feeble, but he has chosen too the young and strong. A sad instance of the latter was the death last Sunday morning of Mrs. Jennie Walker of West Lebanon, wife of Col. E.S. Walker, and only daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Bolivar Robb. From almost perfect health, through a most severe and painful struggle of only about twenty-four hours she passed into life eternal. She left a community in sorrow, two homes in mourning, a father, mother and husband almost prostated with greif, and a bright wee babe to live without a mother's care. The obituary will appear next week. Memorial services will be held at the Christian Church at West Lebanon in the near future. Mrs. Carpenter, mother-in-law of the late Nimrod Beaver, whose death we record also, died the day following Mr. Beaver's death. Mrs. Carpenter lived with her son-in-law Nimrod Beaver, who had lived on the McBroom farm south of West Lebanon for some time, died at his home from the effects of la grippe, last Friday night. The funeral services were held Sunday. Mrs. Isaiah Bowlus died at her home near this place Friday evening, Jan. 22nd, after a short illness with pneumonia. The funeral services conduted by the Rev. Anderson were held from the family residence at 11 a.m., Sunday, after which interment took place in the West Lebanon Cemetery. Died at his residence near here on Saturday, Jan. 16th of la grippe and pneumonia, John Bowman, aged about eighty years. Interment was made at Attica. The funeral services were conduted by the Rev. Patterson of Williamsport. Mr. Bowman was an old resident of the county and respected by all who knew him. S.W. Wattles, who died in Prairie Township last week, was brought to this place an the funeral sermon preached by the Rev. McKinzie on Friday the 15th, inst. Mr. Wattles was a young man, and had his plans laid for the future, but death called and all must obey. He was twenty years and six months old. He was considered a good hard working young man. Mrs. Mary Ann French died at her home near this place last Thursday morning at 4 o'clock, after an illness of two weeks with pneumonia, aged sixty-four years and nineteen days. Mrs. French was the wife of Samuel French who died in May of 1888, and was the daughter of Daniel and Mary Ann Bowlus, the latter of which died at her home near here the 10th, inst., and whose death we recorded last week, and was born in Fredrick County, Maryland, Jan. 2d, 1828, where she resided until 1844, when she removed to this county with her parents. In 1845, she was united in marriage to her late husband, Sam F. French. To them, three children, Mrs. C.F. Robb, Lewis and Henry French were born, all of which survive her. Mrs. French was a devoted wife and mother, a model woman and a trusted friend, and lived to fill well her mission in life and to endear to her a large circle of friends together with all who knew her. She was not a member of any particular church, but was liberal towards all, often expressing however, a preference for the Christian denomination. Owing to the serious illness of a number of the immediate members of the family, no funeral services were held, but were deferred to a future date. Interment took place on Saturday at 1 p.m., in the family lot at the West Lebanon Cemetery.
