      KINZIE. - On the 12th of February, 1899, near Kossuth, Waterloo Co., Ont., of dropsy and la grippe, Magdalena Kinzie, nee Martin, aged 77 years, 7 months and 6 days. She was born July 6th 1821, and leaves three children and twelve grandchildren to mourn their loss. During her long illness she endured her sufferings patiently, awaiting the time when it pleased God to remove her from a life of sorrow into those glorious mansions above where all tribulation and sorrows will be known no more. Services on the 16th were held at the house of Edward Spate her son-in-law, near Kossuth, by Pre. Paul Martin and Joseph Gingrich. Text, Philippians 1: 21 and Matt. 24: 13. Then in the afternoon the remains were taken to Detweiler's meeting house, Dumfries township where a goodly number of her friends were present and services were held by J. B. Gingrich from John 5: 24. The remains were committed to the grave in the cemetery adjoining.
