Martha Muller died at the home of her uncle Rev. Heinrichs early Fri. morning. She had been sick with consumption for only a few months. Funeral services were held Sunday and they were largely attended. Martha was 14 years old. She came to this country from Flettmar in the Province of Hanover a year ago and since that time has been making her home with her uncle. She was an orphan, her parents and brothers and sisters having died from consumption before her.

Emma Caroline Martha Muller, daughter of the deceased Henry and wife Louise Muller, nee Heinrich, whose memory will be cherished, but her spirit took its flight for the better land.
Miss Muller was born on the 15 day of May, 1896, and came to America last year arriving in New York on July the 5th, since that time she has made her home with the Rev. and Mrs. O. Heinrich. On last Thursday midnight, she was called and released from her patient sufferings, and laid to peaceful rest in the Heinrich cemetery on July the 3rd, Rev. Muegge, of Holland, addressed the large concourse of sorrowing friends. Martha was dearly loved, and these some of her last words, "Dear Lord, I'm coming to be with Thee". We extend our heartfelt sympathy in this hour of sorrow.
"Another has joined the Heavenly band,
And one in the heavenly choir,
Will welcome us to the beautiful land.
All radient in snowy attire;
Then let us not mourn for a dear one gone
She is free from all burden and care
She lives in the light of our Fathers love,
And sorrow will never reach her there."
