    • Obituary Notice--Sarah Catherine (Knepper) Stocker "Sarah
      Catherine Stocker, nee Knepper, daughter of Anthony and Catherine
      Knepper, was born Jan. 29, 1847, and died June 4, 1923. At the age of
      2 years the family moved from Pennsylvania to Indiana, and settled in
      the vicinity surrounding the place of her demise." "On Nov. 19,
      1866, she was united in holy wedlock with Wm. S. Stocker. Eight
      children were born to them, five of whom survive: George, of Spokane,
      Washington; Edward and Samuel near the old homestead; Rosa Koher and
      Myrtle Earll, also residing in the nearby vicinity, also and brother
      and a sister, besides eighteen grandchildren, and four
      great-grandchildren, and many other relatives and friends." "On July
      24, 1922, her companion left her for that long journey home. About 26
      years ago she with her husband joined the Oak Grove United Brethren
      church, at which place she was a faithful and estimable member until
      she joined the Band Triumphant. She will be greatly missed in the
      home and church. Funeral services was conducted from the home of her
      son, Edward Stocker to the Oak Grove church and cemetary in charge of
      Rev. M. Herner, assissted by her pastor, Rev. Masters. Peace to her
      ashes."
