From the August 23,1933 Steuben Republican
Elizabeth Carline Dayhuff, daughter of
Catherine and Lester Wilcox, ws born June 13, 1855 in Allen County,
near Huntertown. She was married to Hosea Dayhuff on March 1,
1874, by Elder Martin. They were baptised near Mt. Zion and began
their Christian lives in the same church. From this time until
her passing, August 13, 1933, she lived in Steuben County, forty-eight
years of which were spent in Pleaseant Lake. Mrs. Dayhuff is
survived by two daughters, Mrs. Emma Hoyer of near Pleasant Lake, and
Mrs. Lillie Seydell of Elklhart, and by two brothers, Frank and
William. A brother and two sisters preceded her in death.
She has ten grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.
Her home and her church were her main
interests in life. She was always busy, if not in her own home,
then in a daughters; if not in her own church, then in whatever church
ws nearest. The last wish of her life was gratified in that she
spent the last days in her own home. She has departed this
earthly house to inherit a house not made with hands, incorruptible,
and eternal which her Lord hath prepared for her.
