It is with much regret that we record the death of Mrs. Martha J. Moler, the beloved wife of Mr. Jacob S. Moler, which occurred at her home near Bakerton last Sunday morning. Mrs. Moler had been ill from cancer for a long time. Some months ago an operation was performed by which it was hoped she would obtain relief, but the disease returned in malignant form, causing her great suffering until God took her to that home where there is no sorrow or pain. Mrs. Moler was 44 years, 11 months and 10 days old. Her maiden name was Link, and she was a sister of Messers George and William Link, of this vicinity. She is survived by her devoted husband, one son, Albert T., one daughter, Ada L., and her mother. She was a consistent member of the Lutheran church of Uvilla, and was a woman who had the respect of all who knew her. The funeral service was held at her late home on Monday, and was conducted by Rev. Dr. Charles Ghiselin, of Shepherdstown, and Rev. J. E. Triplett, of Duffields. A very large concourse of sorrowing friends and relatives attended the service. The body was laid to rest in Elmwood Cemetery. The pall-bearers were her cousins, Dr. S. T., George M., W. J., W. R., Jacob and Samuel Knott. We extend our sincere sympathy to the bereaved family.
