  • Notes 
    • Death came suddenly to Mrs. John Lein sr, last Friday night. Late in the evening deceased was apparently as well as ever. An hour later she was seized with shortness of breath, resulting no doubt of heart trouble, and before a doctor could reach her bedside she was dead.

      Deceased's maiden name was Brechbiehl. She was a native of Rhinish Bavaria, Germany, and came to this country 72 years ago, with her parents who settled on a farm 2 miles below St. Jacobs, near the Heidelberg road. She was married to Mr. John Lein, and with him removed to the Seaton farm, about a mile east of Elmira, forty years ago. Here they lived thirty years, then removed to Elmira. Although unable to move about freely on account of rheumatic trouble, deceased enjoyed fair health until a few years ago when she suffered a stroke of paralysis from which she, however recovered. She lived a quiet, and useful life and leaves to mourn her departure her aged husband, two sons and four daughter. The former are Philip and John, both of Elmira, and the latter are Mrs. Louis Hollinger, of St. Jacobs, Mrs. Hy. Zilliax, Mrs. David Hollinger, and Miss Mary Ann of Elmira. The funeral took place last Monday and was attended by a large number of relatives and friends of the deceased.
