Henry Young
This community was startled on Saturday morning upon the announcement of the death of Henry Young, a quiet and industrious man residing on Orange street, and in the employ of Joseph Bollinger.  Mr. Young was sick for several days and on Friday was taken with severe cramp and pain.  He knew that death was approaching and so informed his wife.  In the evening of Friday last at a quarter after nine, he died, aged 31 years, 8 months and 14 days.  Mr. Young was married to Susan Huhn, and they were blessed with four sons, three of whom are living.  He was buried at Lehn’s meeting house, in Manheim township, on Monday last.

Glass, Anna Elizabeth [Weaver] - 1881

Francis V. Glass died at his home near Greenville, this county, after sever suffering from cholera morbus for upwards of a week, on September 13.  Mr. G. was born in Herzogthum Nassau, August 16, 1814.  In later years, he served as a soldier in the army of his native land, and after being free of that service he was joined in holy wedlock to Anna Elizabeth Weaver, who survives him.  This relation was blessed with 12 children, four sons and eight daughters.  He emigrated to this country some thirty years ago, and located near Greenville, Lancaster county.

He was a very industrious, hardworking and thrifty person, and his labors were blessed to the extent that he could enjoy the income of a nice little farm besides some other resources.  He was a prominent member of the Bethany Reformed Church, and for many years an office bearer in said congregation.  At first, and for a number of years, he served as deacon, and afterwards as an elder, and at the time of his death he served the congregation in the capacity of an elder.  He suffered periodically from dyspepsia, which weakened his system very much and may have superinduced <sic> the last and fatal attack.  His sufferings were very extreme, but death relived him from all that belongs to the “here below”.

He attained the age of 67 years and 27 days.  His mortal remains were quietly laid to rest in God’s acre <sic> at Bethany September 17, amidst a concourse of weeping relatives and sorrowing friends.

Singer, Susan - 1881

That Bourne Whence None Return
Susan Singer.

Died near Mt. Hope, September 12, Susan, infant child of Peter G. and Susanna (Baum) Singer, aged 2 months and 20 days.  This is the second death in Mr. Singer’s family within a short time, they having buried on July 16, 1881, a daughter who fell a victim to that dread disease, diphtheria.  Susan was taken off by cholera infantum, after being sick for about 10 hours.

In the morning of September 12, Mr. S. went after his work, which on this day took him away from home a short distance, when he was sent for in the forenoon, little thinking that such a change would take place in his family circle on that day.

But soon the fatal effects of the disease began to show themselves, when in the evening of that same day she breathed her last.  She rests in peace with six others of her brothers and sisters in God’s care at White Oak.  Her funeral took place on September 15.
