Sunday's Obituary: Eliza Marders

Alexandria Gazette
June 18, 1849

DIED, at Erindale, in Prince William Co., Va., on the 11th inst., Mrs. ELIZA MARDERS, consort of Elder Lovel Marders.  She has left a husband, child, and many relatives and friends to mourn her loss; but they sorrow not as those who have no hope.  She was for more than eleven years an acceptable member of the Baptist Church.  During the last eight years she was the subject of much affliction, and her last illness was protracted and severe; but she bore her afflictions with Christian fortitude and resignation, and we joyfully believe that she is now in that land, where "the inhabitants never say I am sick" -- where "no want or pain, shall ever disturb her rest again."
