    Notes 
    • BEDFORD INQUIRER, Bedford, Pa. - Friday, December 28, 1860

      DIED - On the 21st of November, Mrs. Rachel Cessna, consort of William Cessna of Friend's Cove, in the 53rd year of her age.
      The deceased was a native of Bedford County, and for many years a resident in Friend's Cove where she had gathered around her a large circle of friends and relatives, whose highest esteem she deservedly enjoyed. She was a mother of a large and respectable family of children, most of whom she was permitted to see settle in life. She possessed also more than ordinary abilities of mind and was, for years, a correspondent of a newspaper published in connection with the Baptist Church, and of which she was a pious and an exemplary member.
      Her disease was one of much suffering. About two years previous to her death, she was attacked by cancer in its worst form, which the physicians pronounced incurable. Such an announcement, however alarming to some, was not so to her; she knew in whom she believed; she knew that Saviour in whom she put her trust would not forsake her now. Her sufferings were borne with a willing resignation to the will of God. As her disease advanced and her suffering increased, her mind became more devotious; and the more apparent was her enjoyment in seasons of divine worship. On the morning of the 21st, after partaking of some food, she calmly fell asleep in Christ, and while her body rests in a peaceful grave, awaiting the resurrection morn, her happy spirit is enjoying the reward of the righteous.
      She has left to her bereaved husband and children, an overflowing fountain of comfort in the remembrance of her many virtues and in the happy assurance that their loss is her everlasting gain.
