  • Notes 
    • Harrington.-Mother Mary Harrington died Aug. 22, 1894, near Wakarusa, of paralysis, aged 81 years and 7 days. She was born in the city of Lancaster, Pa., Aug. 15, 1813. At the age of 8 years she emigrated with her parents to Waterloo county, Ontario. October 25, 1832, she was married to John C. Harrington who preceded her to the spirit world Aug. 6, 1886, at the ripe old age of 83 years, 1 month and 2 days. Of this union there are yet 10 children--4 sons and 6 daughters alive. In April, 1862, she, with her husband, moved to Elkhart county and settled in Olive township, where she resided to her death. She was a consistent member of the Mennonite church, unassuming in all her Christian traits of character. Her funeral took place on Friday from the residence of her son David Harrington and interment at Shaum's where two able discourses were delivered to a large concourse of friends and relatives by Pre. Lehman and Mumaw.
