News/Obit* 17 March 1858  Obituary,

Died, at her residence near Warsaw, Coshocton county, Ohio, March 15th, 1858, of Consumption, Sarah H. wife of Wm. McElder, in the 26th year of her age.


The deceased was the daughter of John and Sarah McKey, with whom she removed in the Spring of 1853 from Beaver co., Pa., to this county. The following June she was united in marriage to Wm. McElder. In the Spring of 1854, she made an open profession of religion, and united with the Presbyterian Church, of which she was an humble, devoted, and zealous member, evincing by her walk and conversation that she had been with Jesus. Tho' her disease was lingering, she bore all her sufferings with christian meekness; believing, as she said, that "He who ruleth on High doeth all things well." And after a protracted illness of four months, she died as she had lived - in the triumph of faith, a devoted wife, a loving mother, and an affectionate sister; leaving a husband and two small children, a father and mother, brothers and sisters, and a large circle of friends, to mourn her early departure.




Appeared in the Coshocton Age, 17 Mar 1858
