Hannah Burge

In this village, on March 11th, Hannah Burge, in the 65th year of her age.

She was born in Howel, Monmouth county, New Jersey, Aug. 27, 1790; married to Charles Fisher in 1810; left a widow in 1813; married to Richard Burge in 1816; emigrated to Macedon, Wayne county, New York, in 1834, thence to Sandusky county, Ohio, in 1840, thence to Monticello, Indiana, in 1845, and thence to Valparaiso in 1851, during which year she had again been left a widow. She was the mother of 9 children -- 6 yet living; and had 39 grandchildren -- 30 yet living.

Sister Burge was converted and joined the Methodist Episcopal Church about 40 years since. The last time the writer visited her she was calm and talked of dying with the same composure that any one would do upon any other interesting subject. Her last sickness was short, but her sufferings were great, and death found her composed, and confiding in Him in whom she had believed.
