Obituary : Clara (Moulton) Metzner (1843-1899)

Evangelical Messenger
July 12, 1899, page 443

METZNER - Clara Metzner, nee Moulton, was born Sept. 30, 1843 and departed this life near Portland, Ind., July 4, 1899, aged 55 y., 9 m. and 3 d. She was married to Adam Metzner Nov. 13, 1864; to this union were born 4 children. In 1885 Bro. and Sister Metzner united with the Evangelical Association. They lived as devoted Christians until death. A son and daughter are left to mourn the loss of a Christian mother. The husband and 2 children preceded her in death. J.M. SMITH.

Clara (Moulton) Metzner (1843-1899) was my paternal 2nd-great grandmother.  She was the daughter of Albert and Emeline (Philbrick) Moulton.  I do not know what church, if any, they were associated with before joining the Evangelical Association in 1885.
