(Sandy, I believe the obituary may be partially in error.. I have in my notes: "Reformed Church Records - Marriages by Rev. Charles G..Herman - 25 Oct 1832 Abr Knerr of Rockland [township in Bucks Co. PA married Elis Mack, d of John of Rockland")
Elizabeth (Mock) Knarr was born in Bucks County, Pa., Feb 27, 1808, twenty
five years after the close of the Revolutionary War and during the seventh
year of the administration of Thomas Jefferson, the third President of the
United States, when the entire population of the country was 7,000,000 and
the poputation of Pennsylvania 800,000.
She was married to Abram Knarr in 1830, when in her twenty-second year. She came with her husband to Forty Fort, Pa, in 1841. She united with the M.E. Church in Forty Forty in 1843. They came to Luzerne Borough, formerly Mill Hollow, in 1853, where she lived down in the time of her death Sept. 5, 1898 being 90 years, 6 months and 8 days old.
She was the mother of eight children, four sons and four daughters, five of whom are living - Abram and William, residing in Luzerne Borough; Rachel, wife of Rev. Sylvester Fisk, of New Albany, Pa.; Mary, wife of Rev. Thomas H. Kline, of Pikes Creek, Pa., and Elizabeth, widow of the late Henry Pace who was a member of the 143rd Pennsylvania Volunteers and lost a leg in the Civil War.
Her husband died Jan 29, 1884. During ten years of her widowhood she maintained her own home until she became too feeble to be alone. She posessed a strong and sturdy nature-a genuine product of a rugged and pioneer race and age.
The funeral was largely attended in the M.E. Church, Sept 8 and she was buried beside her husband in Forty Fort (Cemetery).
Funeral services were conducted at 2 p.m. today at Brownlie Funeral Chapel
of Melbourne for Fred E. Engle, 62, of 309 W. Amherst Ave., Melbourne, who
died Sunday at Brevard Hospital.
The Rev. Kenneth Shick officiated at the services. Burial was in Melbourne Cemetery.
A native of Elizabeth, N.J., Mr. Engle came to South Brevard in 1965 from Red Bank, N.J. He was associated with Price-Rite Plumbing Supply Co. on the Eua Gallie Causeway. He was a member of Eastminister Presbyterian Church. Surviving are: wife, Mrs. Ruth Manley Engle, Melbourne; brothers, Sheldon W. Engle, Milford, N.J., and Robert E. Engle, Ashland, N.J., sister, Mrs. Marjorie Engle Hart Nevin, Palm Bay; and three nieces and three nephews. Brownlie Funeral Home of Melbourne was in charge of arrangements.
