  • Notes 
    • HARRINGTON.- On the 6th of August, in Elkhart Co., Ind., John C. Harrington, aged 83 years, 1 month and 2 days. He was born in East Earl Twp., Lancaster Co., Pa., on the 4th of July 1803. At 21 he moved to Waterloo Co., Ontario and was married to Mary Colosky in 1832. In 1862 he moved to Elkhart Co., Ind. He was the father of 13 children, 10 of whom and his wife survive him. Before his death he requested that the funeral text should be Rev. 14: 13, that the hymn "Komm sterblicher betrachte mieh"should be sung at the funeral; also to be buried in a shroud in a plain coffin without silver handles and not to be drawn in a hearse. He died in the hope of the fullness of glory beyond this vale of tears.
