MRS. SARAH COLBERT [probably should be Mrs. Jane Colbert]

Mrs. Sarah Colbert aged 82, relict of the late David Colbert, passed away at the Old Colbert homestead corner of Silver and Cherry street, early Tuesday morning. She has been suffering with an attack of la grippe and this together with her advanced years brought on the end which was wholly not unexpected but at the same time quite sudden.

She is survived by a sister and three children, who together with a hose of friends mourn the loss of the pure Godly lady. Funeral services will be held Friday.

Stephen Colbert died this morning at 2 o'clock, aged about 60 years. He had been a great sufferer for years from asthma, and on many occasions death seemed to be hovering so near that it was not expected by his family and friends that he could possibly live from one hour to another. He was a tailor by trade, but for serveral months his health was such that he could not work. He was a brother of D. T. Colbert and leaves a wife and one son. The funeral has not been announced yet.

Stephen B. Colbert, for many years a citizen of Lebanon, died at his residence on North Mechanic street, at 2 o'clock Thursday morning, after a protracted illness, aged sixty years. Deceased had been a sufferer for years with asthma, yet but few, perhaps, ever bore affliction with more fortitude than did he. The funeral services will take place at 2 p.m. to-day (Saturday), at the M. E. Church, and will be conducted by Revs. G. H. Dart and R. J. Beard. A loving wife and one son mourn the loss of the father and head of the family
