The Lancaster Daily Intelligencer, Saturday, November 28, 1908
Mrs. Mary Ann Souders
Mrs. Mary Ann Souders, the oldest woman in Lancaster county except Mrs. Elizabeth Leaman, died on Thursday at the home of her granddaughter, Mrs Mary Ann Souders, in Conestoga Centre. She celebrated her centennial on October 30 and was then in fair health. A few days later she was taken ill and gradually got weaker until death ensued.
She was born in Conestoga township on October 30, 1808, and was a daughter of the late John and Barbara Kindig. When a young woman she married Henry Souders, of Manor township, and removed to that township. Her husband died 25 years ago, and she then went back to Conestoga township.
Her children are Mrs. Hiram Shuman, Rossmere; Henry, Pequea; John C., Conestoga, and Abram, Rossmere. Her oldest child is 71 years of age and the youngest is 62. There are 19 grandchildren, 31 great-grandchildren and four great-great-grandchildren.
Her funeral will take place tomorrow morning, with services at the house a 9 o'clock and the Masonville Church at 10 o'clock.
Any and all information, leads would greatly be appreciated...
