Eckman – In Strasburg, on March 15, 1880, Mrs. Catharine Eckman, aged 91 years, 7 months and 15 days. Her relatives and friends are respectfully invited to attend the funeral from her late residence,
91 East Main street, on Thursday morning, at 10
o’clock. Funeral services at Longenecker’s meeting house, at 11 o’clock.
So who was Catharine? Matrilineal Monday will focus on who she was today.
On This Day is a prompt I started this month to further explore historical events.
