      HOLM, SUSANNA (Nee Cober)

      Death of a Very Old Resident

      One by one, those who first settled in Puslinch are going. Mrs. Neil Holm settled with her late husband, who died some years ago, on the farm where she died on Thursday, November 19, 1891. She had just entered her 79th year. In 1835, she came from the township of Vaughan, county of York, where she was born and being a sister of the late Jacob Cober and Nicholas Cober, settled at the same time almost opposite the farm of Jacob Cober, on which his sons at present reside. Mrs. Holm was one of those, whose living made the world the brighter seem. Her daily life shone with the brightness of Christianity. All who knew her fully respected the high moral tone of her character. A noble woman was Mrs. Holm, true to herself and all the world. She died as she lived. She leaves a son, Daniel Holm of Puslinch and a daughter. Interment took place on Sunday to the brick church burying ground.

      -The brick church burying ground refers to the Brethren in Christ Cemetery at the church on the Lake Rd.

      -Information from the transcription of the Brethren in Christ Cemetery: Neil P. Holm died on Dec. 10, 1880, aged 69 years, 8 months and 24 days. A daughter, Annie (Feb. 28, 1842-July 2, 1867) is buried with them.
