      10 Aug 1883 Elise Ziegler, wife of William Ziegler, died in childbirth in Heidelberg at age of 24 years, 4 months & 15 days. She is survived by a sorrowing husband & 4 small children, the youngest of whom was only a few hours old, when its mother died. Mr. Ziegler has the sympathy of the whole neighbourhood as well as that of many friends & acquaintances in his sad situation, since he is scarcely 30 years old & has already buried 2 wives. Peace be to her ashes!
