Deceased was one of the early settlers and her husband, along with his brother Henry, was the founder of Wellesley village, and for many years the leading business man here. She was born in Hesse Darmstadt, Germany and came to Canada about 1836. She was married to Mr. Doering the following year, and four or five years later the young couple settled at Philipsburg, where they remained until Mr. Doering died in 1873, after a busy life in which he became widely known and respected n this section. She then moved back to Berlin where she resided until her death. She was the mother of thirteen children, ten of whom are still living: Lawrence at Sundridge, Ont.; David, at Oakley, Kansas; Mary, in Berlin; Charles, at Birmingham, Kan.; Mrs. Moran (Caroline), at Berlin; Mrs. Thos. Bellinger (Lizzie), Waterloo; George, at Stokes Bay, north of Wiarton; Fred, in Waterloo; F. Emanuel, Johannesburg, South Africa; and William, who is at present in Berlin. The funeral occurred on Saturday, the remains being interred in the Swedenborgian cemetery, Wellesley village, her grandson-in-law, Rev. Mr. Sinesvett, of Philadelphia, officiating. Four of her sons were present at the grave besides a large number of relatives and friends from this and neighboring townships.
