John STEWART, aged about 54 years, and a resident of Rockhill Furnace, 
Huntingdon county, Pa., passed suddenly to his heaven and rest from his 
labors, a few minutes after 10 o'clock on Dec. 31st. 
He seemed as well as usual all day and retired at his usual early hour, 
about 8 o'clock.  He was aroused near 10 o'clock by a severe pain in the 
left elbow and arising went down stairs and a very few minutes after, before 
medical aid could be had, the pain had reached the heart region and God took 
him.  The shock was most sudden and dreadful to all when it was noised about 
throughout the community that "John Stewart is dead". 
The funeral services were conducted at the home and under the charge of Rev. 
J. C. Collins of Newport, Pa.  Rev. Collins was a former pastor of the 
deceased.  The present pastor, Rev. Carver, being absent from the field at 
the present time, gave the work in full charge of Rev. Collins.  He took for 
his text the words of St. Paul, "I have fought a good fight, I have finished 
my course, I have kept the faith; henceforth there is laid up for me a 
crown." 
Brother John Stewart shall be greatly missed.  His life was not short of a 
living example of Christianity, Paul said, one time to Timothy, "Let no man 
despise thee."  Everyone loved and admired the life---(Remainder of obituary

George W. KLING, son of Rev. and Mrs. Jacob KLING, was born in Huntingdon 
County, Pa., November 10th, 1855 and died January 7th, 1918, aged 62 years, 
1 month and 27 days. 
He was joined in marriage December 17th, 1891 to Miss Ara WEIST, of 
Baltimore, Ohio, who with their daughter Mrs. G.E. O'BRIEN of Des Moines, 
Iowa, survive him.  He is also survived by three brothers and two sisters. 
Mr. Kling had bravely battled against disease for the past eight years, each 
winter escaping the vigors of our severe climate by spending a few months 
where the weather was milder.  On this last December 15th he started for San 
Antonio, Texas, altho he was in a very weak condition.  On January 2nd Mrs. 
Kling received a wire to go to him at once and she left that evening 
arriving in San Antonio, three days later on January 5th. 
It was Mr. Kling's wish that he be taken home to Columbus, and owing to the 
tender care of his wife he seemed a little stronger and on Monday morning, 
January 7th, he was taken to the train and started for his home.  He slept 
for a few hours then woke up seeming very weak.  Stimulants were 
administered but produced no effect and about 4:30 he died in the arms of 
his wife who has devoted the past eight years in trying to help him regain 
his health. 
Owing to a state law, the train officials intended to put Mrs. Kling and her 
husband's body off at the next stop but kind strangers intervened in her 
behalf.  A few hours later the train arrived at Houston, Texas where the 
body of Mr. Kling was made ready for burial.  Mrs. Kling then started home 
arriving in Columbus Thursday evening January 10. 
Services were held at his late home Friday evening January 11th, 1918, 
conducted by the Rev. R. T. Stimmel assisted by the Rev. H. B. Wastervelt. 
Mrs. Roy Brooke sang two of Mr. Kling's favorite songs, "Crossing the Bar" 
and "No Night There". 
For the past fifteen years he had been a resident of Columbus and was 
engaged in real estate business as builder and contractor. 
Undoubtedly his life was prolonged by his strong will power never giving up 
hopes of eventually getting better and we cannot help but admire his 
determination to live and to attend his business affairs as long 
as ----------. 
Burial was made at Maple Grove cemetery in Baltimore, Ohio.

Lewis D. GIFFORD died at his home at Otelia at 1 o'clock Monday morning, 
Feb. 5, from a long illness, due to an abscess on the liver.  Though ill for 
over a year, he was able to be around up until three or four months ago.  He 
was born in Blacklog Valley, June 1, 1848, and was a son  of John and Mary 
GIFFORD.  At death, Mr. Gifford was aged 68 years, 7 months and 5 days. 
The early life of the deceased was spent on the farm.  At the age of 18 he 
went to McVeytown, where he spent 3 years in learning the flour milling 
trade.  Three years were then spent in Western Pennsylvania, and in 1872, 
Mr. Gifford returned to Huntingdon county when he leased the flour mill at 
Oteli from his brother-in-law, Alfred Etnier. 
Mr. Gifford was married on Aug. 31, 1875, to Miss Matilda E. JOHNSTON, 
daughter of J. Lowery and Elizabeth BELL JOHNSTON of Otelia.  To this union 
were born three children who with the widow survive: Walter S. of near 
Newton Hamilton, Maude M., and Mrs. Edna B. GEARHART of Otelia. 
After marriage, Mr. Gifford engaged in the lumbering business near McVeytown 
until 1877, when he purchased the large farm and flour mill property from 
his father-in-law, formerly known as the Samuel H. BELL furnace farms and 
flouring mill property.  Later, Mr. Gifford engaged in extensive farming and 
lumbering, and for several years employed quite a number of men.  At the 
time of the Johnstown flood (1889) his mill and contents were totally 
destroyed, inflicting a heavy loss on him and much inconvenience to the 
surrounding community. 
Deceased was an energetic, hardworking and useful man.  He was always ready 
to help his neighbors and friends if in his power to do so.  He was a member 
of the M.E. Church for many years.  Besides his wife and 3 children he is 
survived by 6 grandchildren, 2 sisters and 1 brother: Mrs. Wm. LAUVER of 
Blacklog, Mrs. H. B. ETNIER of Otelia, Lloyd GIFFORD of Denver. 
Funeral was held from the late home on Thursday and interment at the Stone 
Church in Germany Valley.  Rev. E. C. Myers had charge, assisted by Rev. 
Geo. Swayne.  Undertaker W. P. Dunmire. 
The bereaved have the sympathy of the entire community.

Mrs. Sarah E. CISNEY widow of Washington CISNEY died suddenly of heart 
trouble at the home of her daughter Mrs. William BURGE in Shade Valley Nov. 
12th age 76 years and 20 days.  The funeral services were held in the M. E. 
Church of Nossville of which she had been a member for 62 years. 
Mrs. CISNEY was a daughter of Erasmus and Margaret YOCUM deceased, and was 
the first of five daughters to be called by death.  Those surviving are Mrs. 
Julia SNYDER and Mrs. Margaret JONES of Mount Union, Mrs. Catharine KERN of 
Blairs Mills, Mrs. Elizabeth CISNEY of Huntingdon. 
These children survive, Charles W. CISNEY and James A. CISNEY both of 
Nossville, Mrs. Margaret GOSHORN of Shelby, Iowa, Mrs. Gertrude BURGE of 
Shade Valley, Pa., and Mrs. Blanche BECKENBAUGH of Shippensburg also forty 
seven grandchildren and thirty seven great grandchildren.  Six grandsons 
bore the remains to the last resting place.  It is wonderful how God will 
answer prayer, she always prayed that God would take her before she heard it 
said she was old and in the way.  She often visited the vacant place beside 
her husband and would say it will soon be filled.  She lived through the 
Civil war so we know she had quite a lot of hardships to endure.

In memory of Mr. Emanuel BOOZEL, who died December 25, 1918, at the age of 
71 years and 11 months.  Mr. Boozel was a soldier of the Civil War. 
Dear Papa, we never can see your smiling face.  This world has no smile, 
only gloom; It is not our will, but thine be done.  Life is very sweet, but 
his life was miserable; it was short: at least he kept his faith, never was 
discouraged; always patient.  He joined the German Baptist church when a 
young man and kept his faith to the end.  Let us rather re-dedicate our live 
to the Kingdom of Christ, carrying forward to the best of our ability the 
work which he served, the cause which he has realized in his own life. 
Psalm 17:15 "I will behold thy face in righteousness; I shall be satisfied 
when I awake, with thy likeness:  O sweet and blessed country, the home of 
God's elect; O Sweet and blessed country, that eager hearts expect.  Jesus 
in mercy bring us to that dear land of rest.  Who are with God the Father 
and Spirit ever blest.

change noticeable to her is that she cannot lift as heavily as when she was 
much younger.

On Sunday afternoon last, Nov. 12, 1922, about 4 o'clock, Mrs. R. E. 
PETERSON of Mount Union was instantly killed in an automobile accident which 
occurred about a mile from Waterfall, Fulton County.  Mr. PETERSON, his wife 
and three daughters, Verna, Lila and Fay, left home shortly after dinner 
Sunday for a ride.  In rounding a sharp curve near Waterfall the steering 
gear locked, and unable to straighten up the car on the road, it 
accidentally went through a wire fence and down over a 10 foot embankment, 
the car turning turtle and pinning the occupants underneath.  Mrs. Peterson 
was killed instantly, not having spoken a word after the accident.  She was 
in the front seat with her husband.  The three daughters were in the rear 
seat.  The occupants of the car were unable to get out from under the 
automobile until some neighbors and persons from cars which followed lifted 
the wrecked automobile and thus extricated the passengers.  There was a farm 
house just close by, probably a quarter of a mile from the scene of the 
accident, and several persons who were outside of this farm house were 
witnesses of the accident.  Mr. Peterson was driving slowly, not more than 
15 miles an hour when the accident occurred.  The news of the death of the 
Mrs. Peterson reached Mount Union by telephone shortly after it occurred and 
not only the immediate neighborhood but the whole community was shocked by 
the sad message.  Dean PETERSON and Fred PETERSON, two sons of the deceased 
woman, and employees of the Mount Union post office, left immediately for 
the scene of the wreck.  Undertaker Barben was also summoned and the body 
was brought into Mount Union on Sunday night about 10 o'clock and taken to 
the Barben rooms for preparation for burial. The three daughters, Verna, 
Lila, and Fay, who were riding in the back seat of the car suffered some 
bruises and scratches but were not seriously hurt.  Mr. Peterson himself 
also suffers from ----------------. 
Mrs. PETERSON before marriage was Miss Dora Elizabeth APPLEBY of Shade Gap, 
Pa.  She was a daughter of J. Dorris and Bennett (HARPER) APPLEBY.  The 
father was a justice of the peace for many years and was well known 
throughout the lower end of the county.  She was one of a family of three 
sons and two daughters, and surviving her are the following brothers: Miles 
APPLEBY of Newton Hamilton; Frank APPLEBY of Fort Louden; J. A. APPLEBY, of 
Chicago, Illinois, and Speer APPLEBY of Altoona.  One sister survives; Mrs. 
Jane CREE of Neelyton. 
Deceased was born in Shade Gap on August 6, 1864 and was aged a little over 
58 years. She was married on October 30, 1890 to Robert Elmer PETERSON and 
to this union the following children were born: Merrill of Pittsburgh; Dean, 
Fred, and Max of Mount Union; Verna, Lila and Fay, also at home.  After 
marriage Mr. and Mrs. Peterson took up residence in Altoona where they 
resided until 1910, when they came to Mount Union to live.  They have been 
residents of our city for 12 years. Mrs. Peterson came from a well known and 
prominent family.  She united with the Presbyterian church in girlhood and 
had been a faithful member of that denomination up until the time of her 
death. 
The TIMES extends sympathy to the family and friends of the deceased in 
their sad bereavement.  The community loses in her death.  A faithful wife 
and mother has suddenly been taken from the home. 
It is presumed that the cause of her instant death was that her neck was 
broken in the accident.  Those who lifted the car from the passengers 
claimed that one of the front doors on the body of the car had fallen across 
Mrs. Peterson's neck.  The car was not seriously damaged other than the top 
which was entirely demolished.  The car turned completely upside down.

Martinsburg, Pa. Oct. 4-On Thursday, October 4th, at 3:15 p.m. the death 
angel entered our midst and summoned our much esteemed and well known 
citizen, William C. HUNTSMAN from out midst, his death being attributed to 
heart failure.  Mr. HUNTSMAN was in failing health for the past few months 
but his condition was not considered critical until a week prior to his 
death, he being confined to his bed but a few days, thus reminding us 
forcefully of the words of the poet: There is a Reaper whose name is Death 
and with his sickle keen He reaps the bearded grain at a breath and the 
flowers that grow between. 
The deceased was born at Cora, Huntingdon county, April 13, 1855, a son of 
Mr. and Mrs. William HUNTSMAN, both of whom died when he was but a child. 
He was reared to manhood in Hill Valley in the home of Joseph Price.  He 
found his companion for life in the person of  Anna Elizabeth CHILCOTE, they 
being married fifty years January last.  The earlier years of their married 
life were spent in Huntingdon county.  Some twenty years ago, he with his 
wife and ten children became residents of North Woodbury township, Blair 
County, where he was actively engaged in farming until the time of his 
illness.  He was a kind and devoted husband and father who manifested a deep 
interest in the welfare of his children, nothing being too hard for him to 
do when duty called him.  He was tenderly and sympathetically cared for by 
his wife and children who did everything they could to comfort him during 
his illness. 
Mr. HUNTSMAN will be sadly missed in his home  and community and 
particularly in the homes of his children, where he was wont to go in and 
out, ready and willing to give service, none being too humble for him to 
perform; but while we mourn his passing we feel that out loss is his gain 
and assuredly feel that God knoweth best and doeth all things well.  Being 
blessed with an unfailing memory, he could remember incidents and relate 
happenings of years ago better than most of us of younger years. 
His mind was clear and not long before his departure he called to his 
bedside his children, to whom, with their mother, he imparted the

friends gathered to pay their last tributes of respect. 
The Rev. W. S. LONG of Altoona, officiated at these services, assisted by 
Rev. D. B. DETWILER of New Enterprise and Rev. F. R. ZOOK of Martinsburg. 
Rev. LONG, a former resident of Hill Valley and a friend of Mr. HUNTSMAN 
used as his sermon text, Hebrews 4:9, this Scripture being selected by the 
deceased.  He spoke reminescently of bygone days and then in a forceful way 
of the "Rest" that remaineth for the people of God. 
Hymns, chose by the deceased, for this occasion were beautifully sung and as 
the sun was sinking in the west, he was laid to rest in the Fairview 
cemetery at Martinsburg.  We believe he is enjoying that rest and could not 
wish him here amid the labors and trials o this earth. 
Thus has ended the lfe of a father whose Christian character shall long live 
to influence those who loved and knew him.
