J'here wa« qiiite a good at tendance of the early settlers from the west part of the county, bat few •from the south and east part. Among those who were present the writer remembers Hon. Wm. Mitchell, Elihu Wads^ortb, Asa Brown, Judge Randall and others whose names are not remembered, from the eabt part of the county, aud Thomas H. Wilson, Stedmaa Gray and a few others from the south, while the west and north were well represented. The day was spent in social iutorcourse and enjoyed by all present. In Dt»cember, 1857, the Hon. Wm. Mitchell of Kendallville invited his old friends to meet him at Kendallville to again talk over the times when their early friendships were formed. The meeting was a pleasant one and all realized that it was good to be there. No from that time uo^il for sever^ yeari' -when several met and organized this Society as it now exists and fixed the place of meeting at Albion and the time the first Saturday of June annually. The time was changed to the lirst Thursday of June as it is now held. The first meeting was held in June, 1868. During the time that this society has been in existence it has been made my duty to present to you at each annual meeting a brief sketch of the lives of such as have left us during the year, and to day I lay be fore you the names of sucii as met with u^ at our last meeting, but will meet with lis no more. Their work i:i done and "Fnis" is written on the last page of their earthly history. Since our last meeting the following members have left us: Thos. J. Wilson, Washington tp. George Wilmeth, Elkhart tp. Ann R. Engle, Perry tp. Catharine Weimer, Allen tp. Ephraim Cramer, Swan 1 p. Margaret Johnson, Washington tp. James Gibson, Elkhart tp. Gideon Sclotterback, Perry tp.

Making in all eleven, which is a smaller number than at any previous meeting, but we must bear in mind that at each meeting the number is They settled near Ligonier where his father and mother both died many years ago. The whole of the life of the subject of this sketch was passed in this and LaGraoge counties, and I can tell you nothing of him that you do not already know. His parents were justly esteemed for ' their blan^less lives, and George was wortizyofhis parentage. February 21, 1808, he was married to Mary Hamilton, a daughter of one of the piont ers and a woman worthy of her husband. She died June 0, 1888. They had no children. After the deair: cf his wife ho found a home with his nephew Lewis W. Smalley, where he was tenderly cared for until it was said to him "it is enough, come up higher." I am not informed what were his church connections, but his relatives, as far as I know, werf> Methodist. Spirit land. In his religion he was a methodist, in politics a republican, and in all the relations of life a pat tern worthy of imitation. His life was both busy aud useful, and now he is at rest and "his works do follow him." It is to him and such as he was, that the men and women of Noble county are indebted for their blessings. May the present inhabi tants cherish their memory and emulate his virtues. He died Jane 18, 1892. james gibson, was born in Pocahontas county, Vir ginia, in 1832. He cqme to wha^ is now Noble county in the fall of 1834, when Noble county was a part of La-Grange. He was a son of John and Margaret Gibson and the family sot-tied in Elkhart township where the father and mother both died many years ago. At the time the family settled in Elkhart township there were, I think, only three or fonr families in the township, and the whole county was a wilderness and was heavily timbered, and hftrd work and plenty of it stared the early set tiers in the face. James was at that time too young to boa prominent ac tor, but he grew up under surround ingB that, as he grew oMer, taught him lessons of industry aud frugali-"ty, and at the time of his death he was a prosperous farmer, having the respect of all who knew him. His first wife was Mary Smith, a most estimable woman, who died in 1865. He was again married to Mary Thompson, who, with a sou 21 years old, survive him. The widow and son live ofi the home farm. He died 1892. He wasqnietand un- ann engle, was one of the first of our band to whom the call came after our last annn il meeting' She died suddenly e 9, 1892. She was born in March % 10, to Noble Glmhly iu brothers, John and Jacob Conrad, who, at that time, were youog men, and kept house for them for several years. In November, 1847, she was married to Andrew Engle, one^f the earliest of tae settlers of the county, having come here in 1831, and who, with four sons and one daughter, survive her. She has liv ed inf Perry township during all the time since she came here, and is well known to all the early citizens of that part of the county. She was a dutiful wife, an eflFectionate mother and a kind aud obliging neighbor, and will be missed in the homes where sickness and sorrow have been assuaged by her ministrations. But her work is finished and she has done her share in making Noble county what it is. May the few of her old associates who ar#left remember her, and may the young realize what she has done for them. Two brothers, Jacob and Adam Conrad, of Elkhart, and one sister, Mrs. Henderson, of Albion, are left. ephraim cramer, passed nearly all his life in Noble county, as he was born in 1822 in JeflFerson county, N. Y., and at the age of 12 years came to Noble county, where the remainder of his useful life was passed. On the 20th of August, 1846, he was married to Cordelia A. Broughton, who was a daughter of pioneer parents, and with whom he lived until his death, and who is now left in "life's late afternoon" to finish her journey alone. To them were horn eight children of whom four are living, the other four having preceded their father to the assuming in his habits, and sought to do to others as he would wish to be done by. In religion he was a methodist and in politics a democrat. gideon schlotterback, was born in Union county. Pennsyl vania. May 23, 1811, and died at^his home August 23, 1892. In he i» Boif NobW co^y, bat before the coaaty was organiled. Iq 1833 on the 19th day of April he was married to Miss Mary Engle with whom he lived until January 23, 1856, when she was removed by death. By this union he was the father of 12 children, of whom seven are now living. He was again married November, 1856, to Mrs. Mary Hoak who is still living. For more than 60 years he has lived in this community and in Perry township. He is almost the last of the very early settlers of the county, and has witnessed all the great and marvelous changes that have marked the development of Noble county, and the wildest dreams of his young heart, when he first pitch ed his tent in northern Indiana, were more than realized. He has seen the wilderness transformed into fruitful fields, and where once was seen the wigwam of the wandering Indian, he has seen the comfortable home of the prosperous farmer, and better than all, he has seen a land given over to savage paganism, become the home of christian civilization. All this he has seen and could say: "I have assisted in this great work." During his long and useful life he has formed many ties that bound him to his friends and his home, but as age advanced he has seen those ties sver ed, and day by day, his attachment to the world became weaker; the friends of his youth were gone and we may say that a race that knew him not has arisen around him and he was almost a stranger in the land where he has lived so long, and it is natural to believe that the rest and quiet of the grave was welcomed. His children were kind and sought to make his last days as happy as pos sible, but no one could fill the places made vacant by death. In all the relations of .life he was a pattern worthy of imitation. As a husband, father, neighbor and friend, he was as near perfect as falls to the lot of any. And we shall miss his hearty greeting, his honest face, and his seat at the annual mooting of the pioneers will be vacant, but we will hope and trust that another seat is filled in that sun bright land where no tears are shed and no graves are dug. The lapse of time and the influence of the elements will cansa the gi-anite shaft that shnll mark his grave to crnaoble to dust, but the inflnence of his-useful life shall tell upon the records of eternity. mary ann king randall. In the Avilla News of September 29th, 1892, appeared the following notice: "Mriry Ann King Randall was born in Chenang county, N^^w York, I December IS, 1824, and died nt Avil-I la. Ind., September 24, 1892, aged 67 years 9 months and 6 days." The above brief notice is all perhaps that IS necessary, but to the early settlers of Noble county the writer feels something more is. She came to N.»ble county in 1837, at the time being 13 years of ag»^, and with her parent settled in Swan township, where she lived until June 16, 1842, when she married Hon. Edwin Randall, with whom she lived until June 16, 1873, having spent 31 years of wedded life together. The i.ssue of this marriage was two sons, Sumner K , who resides at Avi 1 In, and Perry A , who resides at Fort Wayne, and one daughter, who was married to G. W. Seavey. She is now his widow, he having died a few months ago. She was a woman of great force of character, kiod and courteous in her deportment, tender in her judgment of others, and granting to others that liberty of Conscience she exer^ cised for-hersell^ She. fnl mothei^íttá iìet^é^ÉS^^ and cali her bleaaea^' íáay ^^ lives be as blameless as hers, uer funeral was held at the old home where she bad spent so many happy hours, 'and services conducted by Rev. D. W. Moffat, D. D. of the First Presbyterian church of Fort Wayne, a large congregation present showing the estimation in which she was held by her neighbors.

She was married to Leonard Wolf in 1834 in Hocking county, Ohio. In 1837 they settled in Noble county and resided there about one year when they moved to LaGrange county. In 1848 they returned to Noble county where Mr. Wolf ,died in 1856, leaving her a widow at the age of 41 years with ten children, all of whom survive her, and all of whom, except one, were present at the time of her death. She left 31 grand children and 2 great-grandchildren. She was buried at the Salem church, three miles north of Ligonier, October 5th, 1892, near the place where her pioneer life was spent. At the age of 15 she gave her heart to her Saviour and united with the Presbyterian church and remained a consistent member until she was removed to the Church Eternal.
