    • HERSHEY - On May 31, 1897, in Paradise Twp., Lancaster Co., Pa., of old age, Elizabeth Hershey, aged 89 ys., 11 ms. and 19 ds. Deceased was the widow of the late Pre. Jacob Hershey, and the last daughter of Bish. Peter Eby. She was a faithful member of the church for about 74 years. During the last fourteen years she was confined to her bed, but she was cheerful and happy until the last few years of her life when her mind became very weak. Even then she enjoyed a gospel talk, and was often heard singing the old hymns which she had learned and loved. She was mother to a large family of whom there are living, seven children, thirty-three grandchildren, sixty-nine great-grandchildren, and seven great-great-grandchildren. She was buried June 3d in Hershey's burying ground. Funeral services were conducted at the house of her son Menno, by Amos Hoover, and at Hershey's meeting-house by C.M. Brackbrill from Job. 5:26
