Light -- In Orland, May 7, 1883, Frances L., wife of James D. Light, aged 40 years, 4 months and 25 days.

The deceased came with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Burnham to Indiana in 1844 and settled in Noble county, near what is now known as Kendallville.  She was married to James D. Light in 1860 and came to Orland in 1865.  She had been for many years an exemplary member of the Methodist church.  On Tuesday the funeral services were held at the church.  Her pastor, Elder Currie, preached an appropriate discourse to a large audience of sympathizing friends who followed her to her last resting place, in Green Lawn cemetery.  In their bereavement the afflicted family have the sympathy of all.
