A Wedding and Funeral

The Home News, January 31, 1861

On the 9th Inst. David Feldner was married to Rebecca Elliot, in Aurelius township, and on the same evening, his mother, Mrs. Feldner, living near Salem, was accidentally burned to death.  There was no one about the house at the time of the occurrence, except her husband.  She had been subject to fainting fits, and it is supposed that during his temporary absence from the room, she was seized with one of these, for when he returned, she was lying with her head in the fire.  She was so badly injured that death relieved her in a short time from her sufferings.
