  • Notes 
    • Obit: Herald of Truth, December 1872
      On the 6th of September, in McLean Co., Ill., of lung fever, CATHARINE ZEHR, aged 54 years. A great number of relatives and friends followed her to the grave, to bestow the last tribute, of respect departed. She was beloved by all, and had been several years blind, but with her spiritual eyes she held to him who is invisible as though she could see him. She bore her affliction with christian resignation. She was a member of the Amish Mennonite church, and left a bereaved husband and 3 children to mourn their loss. Funeral services by Chr. Schlegel and John P. Schmitt, from 1 Cor. 15
