      Death of an Old Settler

      Mrs Jacob B. Erb, residing three miles west of the town of Waterloo, died yesterday morning after a long illness. She was over eighty years old and has lived about sixty on the same farm where she died. Her maiden name was Clemens; her relatives live in the vicinity of Hespeler. She leaves six sons and one daughter and a large number of grand and great-grand children. Her husband also survives her, though about 85 years old and quite infirm, having been entirely blind about twelve years. The funeral will take place on Saturday at 9 o'clock a.m. at the house of the deceased. Her remains will be interred at Eby's cemetery, two miles west of Waterloo.
