      Berlin Loses an Old Resident

      The news of Saturday says: - "We have to notice today the death of another of our eldest citizens, Mrs. Abraham Moyer, Sen. She was the eldest daughter of the late Isaac Shantz one of the earliest settlers of this neighborhood, and has lived in wedded life with her husband, who survives her, nearly sixty years. They have had a large family of sons and daughters, most of whom are living. Deceased has been suffering for a number of years from paralysis, which finally took her off. She was a pious and devoted Christian woman, who will always be held in the kindest remembrance and respect by her children, grandchildren, and almost an unlimited number of friends and acquaintances.
