      "Albrecht.--Barbara Nafziger was born in Rheinbayern, Germany on Aug. 28, 1851; died at her late home in Champaign, Ill., April 9, 1923; aged 71 y. 7 m. 12 d. In 1870 she came to America with her parents, living with them near Bloomington, Ill., for four years, when she was married to John Albrecht of near Flanagan, Ill. This happy marriage terminated when her husband died in Feb., 1900, but by her courage and faith in God she carried on the family responsibilities. Her life was ever guided by the prayer that she might be given the ability to see the right and have the strength to follow it. For several years she made her home in Flanagan. The last ten years were spent in Champaign, where she moved for the purpose of educating her two younger sons. It was said that she was ever ready to help a good cause along by giving of her means. She leaves 4 sons and 3 daughters: Mrs. Joseph Ingold, Mrs. P. L. Guth, Mrs. E. J. Gable, P. D., and S. A., of Flanagan, Ill.; W. A., of Columbiana, Mo.; and D. A. of Champaign, Ill. One daughter, Mrs. S. J. Sutter of Flanagan, preceded her to the great beyond. A number of grandchildren and great-grandchildren, besides many friends also survive. Short services were held at her home in Champaign, April 10, after which her remains were brought to the home of her son S. A., at The Homestead, where services were held April 12 by D. W. Slagel (I Pet. 1:3-25) and at the Waldo Church by Bros. J. D. Hartzler (Acts 9:36-42) and C. F. Derstine (Acts 13:36 and Heb. 11:16). Many friends and relatives had assembled. Interment in the Waldo cemetery."
