      STEINMAN.--On the 22d of February, 1892, in Livingston Co., Ill., suddenly of throat trouble, Maria Steinman, aged 54 years and 10 months. She was up quite late in the evening, and spent the time reading and meditating. The children had already retired, then she told her husband she would retire too, but was already breathing heavily. Soon after she called him saying she could not lie down. He hastened to her side, and in a few minutes she expired in his arms. She had been afflicted with the grippe, but had almost recovered. Her maiden name was Oesch. She was born in Forsthof, in Bavaria, on the 25th of April 1837, was married to Daniel Augsburger, Nov. 14, 1858, who died soon afterward. On the 7th of September 1862, she was married to Jacob Steinman, whom she now leaves with 9 children to mourn her sudden death, but we rejoice that they need not mourn as those who have no hope. Sister Steinman was a faithful follower of Jesus in the Amish church. Funeral services by Joseph Ackerman from 2 Cor. 5, and by Daniel Orendorff, Stephen Staehly and John P. Schmitt from 1 Cor. 15. She was laid to rest on the 24th. A large number of friends and loved ones followed the remains to the grave.
      *There is a blank spot, no clue at all to what it should be.

      Jacob and Marie Anna had 10 children. [3]
