GRAMLING - Rachel Gramling was born in Cambria Co., PA., Feb. 13, 1829, and died at Elton, Pa., Nov. 29, 1897, aged 68y., 9m and 13d. Her husband and 1 child preceded her to the spirit world, and 1 son and 4 daughters survive her. She lived in widowhood for 26 years. She was converted and joined our church when 18 years old, and lived a consistent Christian life till death. A few days before she died, as the writer was reading and praying with her, she clapped her hands and praised God and said, "I am prepared to die." She always took an active part in church work and was very prompt in paying her church dues, and also paid very liberally to the new house of worship at Elton a year ago. Funeral by the writer, assisted by Rev. Riggle of the U. B. Church. P. Burkey.
