Heard of Uncle's Death While Preparing to Go to Sister's Funeral


The Rev. Scott E. Winebrenner, pastor of the Grove-avenue Methodist Church, received word at an early hour this morning of the death of his sister, Mrs. Benjamin F. Cable, in West Wheatfield Township, Indiana County. She died last night, and while preparing to go to the funeral, he received another message announcing the death of his uncle, Jacob Winebrenner, who passed away this forenoon at his home near New Florence. Mrs. Cable was forty-one years of age and Jacob Winebrenner was eighty-three.

The Rev. Winebrenner left this afternoon for Bolivar to attend the funeral of his sister, Mrs. Estella Lichtenfels, of Conemaugh, a daughter of Mrs. Cable, accompanying him. The funeral will likely take place at 2 o'clock to-morrow afternoon, when the Rev. W. F. Hunter, pastor of the Bolivar M. E. Church, will conduct the obsequies. Mrs. Cable is survived by her husband, seven children, three sisters, and four brothers. William Winebrenner, father of Mrs. Cable, and the Rev. Winebrenner, died near Bolivar last May.

Jacob Winebrenner was a brother of William Winebrenner and was a veteran of the Civil War. He is survived by one sister, Mrs. Mary Longstreth, of Nebraska, Pa.; his wife, whose maiden name was Lydia Wyant, and by a number of grown children, four of whom reside in New Florence. Mr. Winebrenner was a farmer all his life and had resided in St. Clair Township, Westmoreland County, for the past fifty years. The funeral will take place at 10 o'clock Saturday morning. Interment will be made in Laurel Hill Furnace Cemetery. The Rev. Scott E. Winebrenner will attend the funeral of his uncle before returning home.
