Mrs. D. J. Fulmer died on Friday morning, Oct. 16, 1908, at the age of eighty years, one months and eight days.

Julia A. Herbert was born at Edinboro, Pa. On Sept. 8, 1828, and was the eldest of seven children, all of who are living, but one sister. Part of her early girlhood was spent in Ohio. She was married to David J. Fulmer on Sept. 14, 1851, and their married life lasted over half a century. To them were born eleven children, five sons and six daughters, all but one little daughter survive them. Seven of the children were present. One son and one daughter, who remain to maintain the old home, have had the responsibility and care of her and the estate since her husband's death in March 1900. She died at ten minutes after three. Just before awakening life of a new day she went to sleep. No one was more willing to aid the suffering, cheer the despondent, sustain the weak and to throw over the frailties of our race the mantle of Christian charity and when death came to her, as it comes to all, neighbors and friends vied with each other in acts of loving kindness and tender solicitude.

The deceased was a most devoted and indulgent wife and mother, ever thoughtful for the welfare and happiness of her family, which was a united one. She had a large acquaintance and was held in high esteem by all.
