      Margretha Miller was born in Waterloo Co., Ont., July 11, 1828, died at the home of her son, Dilman in Kent Co., Mich., Aug. 24, 1912; aged 83 y. 1 m. 13 d. She was one of a family of six children. One sister Mrs. Elizabeth Keller, died a few years ago. The others have lived to reach, or nearly so, the three score years and ten. She was united in marriage to Jonathan Bleam in Ontario, July 12. 1853. To them were born three sons and four daughters. The father and three children, Aaron, Ester and Mary Ann, have preceded this aged mother into eternity. Two sons and two daughters remained to comfort and care for her during her reclining years. 36 years ago Mrs. Bleam with her husband and children came to Michigan and settled on the farm that has since been her home. She has been a member of the Mennonite Church from girlhood, but for many years has not been able to enjoy its service on account of failing health. She is survived by her son Dilman with whom she lived, another son Henry and her two daughters, Mrs. Samuel Stahl and Mrs. John Stahl one brother in Michigan, two sisters and 1 brother in Canada, also several grandchildren and one great-grandchild. Besides these she leaves a large circle of nieces, nephews and other relations.

      "Sleep, peacefully sleep, dear mother,
      Your cares and your sorrows are o'er;
      On this side the shore we'll miss you,
      On the other you will meet those gone before."
