DIED - At the residence of her son in law, Halstead KNAPP, in Hopewell, Mehitable FREDERICK departed this life, Nov 30 ,1863, aged 95 years, 1 month and 22 days. Another of our old settlers has gone home, to a house not made by hands, eternal in the Heavens. She had been privileged beyond many, she had lived years beyond the "three score and ten" and had seen the fifth generation. Her life has been an eventful one. The earlier part of it was spent among the string scenes of the Revolution, George Washington at one time made her father's house his headquarters and the writer of this has often listened with delighted attention while she recounted stories illustrating the generosity and good qualities of the "father of his country", and the passages of Scripture learned from his lips while sitting on his knee were favorites with her. Nearly fifty eight years ago, with her husband, she left Rockland County and came to what is now called Hopewell Center, town of Hopewell, where she resided until the time of her death. she was very benevolent, no one could say to her, "I was hungry and ye too me not in, I was naked and ye clothed me not," for she reached forth her had to the needy. As long as she retained her senses, her Bible was her constant companion and quotations from it were constantly on her tongue. She was blessed in worldly affairs and her declining years were passed in a luxurious home where loving children ministered to every want.

The deceased ws of superior intellect, and much pains had been taken to cultivate and bring out those latent powers of mind, which the watchful eye of affection was quick at discovering she possessed. She was early found in the Sabbath School, where her devotion to the cause, her every cheerful nature, and her winning way of imparting instruction, rendered her memory as a successful teacher, particularly dear to all those who knew her there. Modesty with her was added proof of merit; and the proofs of fine literary ability which even thus early, she had given in published communications in several literary journals, were only prompted by a desire to do good. To appearance, her future had all those surroundings most attractive to the ardent and hopeful mind of the young, and a career of usefulness seemed unclouded before her. Whatever her promise of success in a wider field, it was in her home circle where (cut off)
