|Baird & Hardy Funeral Home Records, Jay County, Indiana, 1909-1911|
Located the funeral record of Catherine (Young) Metzner (1819-1910), my paternal 3rd-great grandmother, while at the Allen County Public Library in Fort Wayne recently. Catherine was the daughter of Nicholas and Salome Young and the wife of John Metzner (1805-1888).
According to the record, her death occurred at Rome City, Indiana on June 22nd. This matches the facts I'd already discovered through her obituary. She was living at the home of her daughter, Mary A. (Metzner) Huey, at the time of her death.
According to the record, she was 91 years old. The funeral was held at 2 p.m. at Mt. Zion church and interment at Mt. Zion cemetery on June 24th.
