Obituary notice from Frederick D. Royer.
Mrs. Rebecca Barndollar, the beloved wife of our fellow-townsman, William Barndollar, one of Everett's oldest residents, died at her home on South street, this place, at 12:25 a.m., on Monday morning, February 7, 1898, aged 77 years, 5 months and 27 days.
The deceased was born on the old Morgart homestead, three miles East of town, August 11, 1820. She was the daughter of Baltzer and Mary Morgart. On the 22d of May 1848, she was united in marriage to William Barndollar, a son of Peter and Anna Barndollar, who were among the earliest settlers in this part of the county. To this union were born five children, two of whom are living. In 1849 the couple moved to Rainsburg, this county, where Mr. Barndollar engaged in the mercantile business, which he conducted at that place for three years. In 1852 they removed to Johnstown, Cambria county, where Mr. Barndollar again carried on a store of general merchandise for a period of eight years, at the end of which time, accompanied by the deceased, he returned to Everett, where they finally settled down making it their future home. The deceased was a faithful and devout member of the M. E. Church for nearly fifty years.
The funeral took place on Wednesday last, at one o'clock, services being held in the M. E. Church. The cortege was a very large one, over twenty five carriages following the hearse, and the large Sunday-school room of the church was well filled with relatives and friends of the deceased to pay their last tribute of respect to one of the noblest of her sex.
At the close of Rev. Moore's remarks, an invitation was extended to view the remains, during which the choir sang "Nearer My God To Thee." At the close of the service the casket, upon which rested a beautiful wreath, was carried tenderly out of the church to the hearse by the pall bearers, Messrs. P. C. Messersmith, William Pettigrew, J. H. Thompson, Daniel B. Ott, Simon Leader and Mason Howard. The remains were then taken to the Everett cemetery, and laid to rest beside kindred who had gone before.
The deceased is survived by a sorrowing husband and two sons, Baltzer M., and Peter. Other near relatives who morn her death are one brother and four sisters, namely: P. G. Morgart and Mrs. Simon States, of this place; Mrs. Robert Steckman, of Bedford; Mrs. George Grossman and Mrs. James Steckman, of Lancaster.
