Funeral services by Noah Stauffer and Daniel Wismer, at Berlin, from John 14: 2 and James 4: 14, after which the remains of the little one were laid to rest at Latschaw's meeting house near Manheim. Little Lydia was a bright little girl. She attended the Sunday school at Berlin. Just a little while before she died she asked her brothers and sisters to sing a hymn she had learned in Sunday school, "Home Bells are Ringing." This was her favorite hymn.
