Conyngham's Oldest Woman Died Suddenly Last Night Mrs. Weaver, the estimable wife of Daniel Weaver of Conyngham, was suddenly summoned to the Great Beyond, last night at 10 o'clock. About a year ago she suffered a stroke of paralysis and had been ailing more or less ever since, but her condition of late was not such as to cause alarm and her sudden demise came as a great shock not only to her immediate family, but to her numerous acquaintances as well. Mrs. Weaver was a grand old lady and lived to the ripe age of four score years. She resided in the valley all her life and was known far and near, and held in high regard. She was a Christian woman if there ever was one and was a member of the Lutheran church. Surviving are her husband and two children. John Mumaw, and Mrs. Norman Radler.
She was a member of Christ Reformed Church, Conyngham, and was the last member of her family. Her daughter, Mrs. John Wagner, Conyngham, with whom she made her home and one grandson, Norman Wagner, survive.
Funeral services will be conducted Wednesday afternoon at 2 o'clock at the late residence with the Rev. Mil-May officiating. Interment will be made in Union cemetery at Conyngham.
Few men were better known or had more friends in the valley than John Mumaw. He was a man of generous impulses. He was a devoted husband and a kind and indulgent father; a good neighbor, but the greates of all he was a man, and to his friends, the soul of fellowship. Surviving him are his wife and three sons, Charles, Oscar and Ray.
Mr. Mumaw was born in Conyngham Valley 58 years ago. He always resided there. The funeral took place Thursday afternoon. Services were conducted in the Reformed church by Rev. Hartzell, followed by burial in the adjoining cemetery.
Three sons survive; Oscar of Hollywood; Charles of Sugarloaf Township; and Ralph of Conyngham; also one brother, Monte Santee, of Hazleton. Twelve grandchildren also survive.
The funeral will be held on Tuesday afternoon privately, with services at the residence and interment in Conyngham Cemetery.
Surviving are her husband, three sons and daughter, John, of this city; Paul, William, and Emily at home; her father, Charles Wagner, of this city, and the following brothers and sisters: Dr. Arthur Wagner, Williamsport; Mrs. Wm. Topley, Detroit; Harold Wagner, Chicago; Mrs. Wm. Key, of this city.
He was preceded in death by his wife 12 years ago. A son, Samuel died 13 years ago, and he is survived by the following children: John, of West Hazleton; Paul, of Haddock; William of Hollywood; and Mrs. Lester Cawley of this city.
