county from Pennsylvania. She had been sick for some time, but up to last Sabbath was not deemed serious, but after that time
her case became hopeless, and she was soon in the land of rest. Her belief was that of the Covenanters. The loss falls
especially heavy on her worth husband, as he has three small children, the youngest a babd (sic) of seven months.
DIED, on July 8th, 1879, Mrs. Elizabeth MITCHELTREE, at Mt. Ayr, Ringgold county, Iowa, in the 30th year of her age.
Her maiden name was McELHENHY. Mrs. MITCHELTREE was born and brought up near Jamestown, Pa. She early united with the
Reformed Presbyterian church of Greenville, Pa., and at the time of her death was still a member of the Reformed
Presbyterian church, of Adamsville, Pa., She came west about one year ago, and was esteemed among
Christians at Mt. Ayr, Iowa, as a humble, consistent, devoted Christian. She was attached to her church, and
read the Statesman and Reformed Presbyterian. She gave the best evidence of being a Christian, "a living
epistle of Christ, read and known of all men." She leaves a sad husband and three children. "Blessed are the dead."
