      _________________________

      It becomes our sad duty to-day to chronicle the death of the oldest person in the neighborhood, Mrs. David Lichty (nee Rebecca Gingrich), who died last Thursday at the home of her son David near here, after an illness extending to some 14 months, at the ripe old age of 88 years, 1 month and 12 days. She was the mother of 5 sons and 1 daughter, name;--Menno, George, Daniel, John, David, and Nancy, of whom only George and David survive. Her husband also predeceased her about 23 years. The funeral took place on Sunday forenoon at Martin's Meeting House. We extend sympathy to the bereaved ones.
