Elizabeth Saul Fetterman

January 14, 1785 - April 4, 1844

St. Paul's United Church of Christ Cemetery, Numidia, PA

Elizabeth Saul Fetterman

Elizabeth was the daughter of Leonard Saul. Her mother died when she was two years of age. She married George, son of Catharine Yeager and George Fetterman, and shortly after their marriage, they moved to a farm near the village of Numidia, PA. After Elizabeth's father-in-law died, her mother-in-law Catharine came to live with them and died there in 1812. The following inscription on her headstone, written in German, is translated below:

ELIZABETH,
Wife of George Fetterman,
Was born Jan. 14th, 1785, in Maxatawny, Berks County, Pa.
She was baptised and confirmed a member of the
Evangelical Lutheran Church—
Sponsers, Jacob and Magdalena Kreiger.
She was married July 29th, 1806, and was blessed with
twelve children—nine sons and three daughters. She
died April 4th, 1844,
Aged 59 years, 2 months, 21 days.

(From the Genealogy of Joseph Fisher, and His Descendants, and of the Allied Families of Farley, Farlee, Fetterman, Pitner, Reeder, and Shipman, compiled by Clarence Woodward Fisher, 1890.)

As you can see from the picture, the writing on the headstone is almost illegible at this point.

Picture of headstone was taken on June 24, 2003.
