  • Notes 
    • Obit: Herald of Truth, Vol. XXVII, Number 15, August 1, 1890, pages 237 and 238
      SCHLEGEL. On the 20th of, in Livingston Co., Ill., of infirmities, Salome, widow of the late Bish. Christian Schlegel, aged 71 years, 1 month and 3 days. Buried on the 22d. A large number of friends and acquaintances from near and far assembled at her burial. Services at the house of her son-in-law, August Albrecht, where she had spent the last days of her life, by Daniel Orendorff from Psa. 90, and at the meetinghouse by Joseph Ackermann, Daniel Orendorff and John P. Schmitt from 1 Cor. 15: 120. In the last week of her life Sister Schlegel became weaker and weaker in body and mind, and at last the Lord took her home, thus fulfilling a wish she had often expressed, at the close of the funeral services the beautiful hymn way sung, ''I'm going home to die no more.''
      She was a faithful member of the Old Amish Mennonite church, and leaves 11 children, 46 grandchildren and 28 great grandchildren. Four children preceded her.
      Transcriber's note: the phrase "way sung" is transcribed as it appeared.

      Her parents lived on the farm called Sommerhof.
