LANCASTER: Elizabeth Lancaster was born in the County of York, England,
Dec. 13, 1810, and passed home to God, Dec. 14, 1890. She married Wm.
Lancaster in 1836, and moved to this country in 1848. Six children were
born to them, four of whom, along with the husband, mourn her sad loss. She
and her husband joined the M.E. church in 1840, and, according to universal
testimony, she lived a consistent Christian to the last. The two of her
children who preceded her to Heaven were Christians, and the four left are
on the way to meet her in glory. She was one of those sweet mothers in
Israel, who never murmured in any trial. The funeral service was held in
the M.E. church, Seney, Iowa.
