A. H. Clark, former editor of the Ceedersburg Reporter, and a hustling newspaperman of his time, died in Veedersburg last Thursday of consumption. Anyone who knew Mr. Clark could but cherish pleasant memories of him. Anna Lutz, daughter of George and Rebecca Lutz and sister of Andrew Lutz, was born in this place March 23rd, 1869. Death claimed her parents when Anna was but a child and she grew up in the home of her uncle, Jacob Nordurft, who loved her as her own. In 1886 she was united in marriage to James Potts, son of Mrs. James Calton. The happy couple lived in this vicinity, one child a daughter being born to them, until 1891, when with other Williamsport friends and relatives, the most of which have returned, they moved to Hammond where Mr. Potts found permanent employment. Anna had never been a robust girl, and last July, taking a severe cold, consumption soon fastened its fatal grasp upon her and held her for its own. Thus through suffering she lingered through seven long weary months of pain until Sunday morning, January 28th when death came almost without warning. in the evening she had been planning with her husband as what she would do when well, and in this happy mood fell asleep. Later she awoke her husband telling him she was very ill and asking him to call a neighbor lady. Before Mr. Potts could comply, Anna was dead. The dread disease had done its work. Anna had left husband and little one and gone up higher. When young she united with the M. E. Church in this place and was a Christian at the time of her death. She was also a branch of the Odd Fellow's order. The remains were prepared for burial and brought here by the evening rain on Tuesday of last week, being taken to the home of her uncle Philip Bordurft from which place the funeral services, conducted by teh Rev. Myers were held at 10 a.m., the followign Wednesday after which the remains were laid to rest in Hillside Cemetery, there to await the call of God. Anna leaves a grief stricken husband, a little daughter which so much needed a mother's care, and many relatives and friends to mourn her death, but it is best to feel that the Lord God doeth all things well.
