The Death of Mrs Belknap
Mrs. Susannah S. Belknap died at the residence of her son-in-law, James Frantz, in this village Wednesday evening. She was the relic of the late Horace Belknap, and was aged 77 years. She had been suffering for several weeks from the effects of inflammation and bleeding of the bowels. The deceased was born in Damascus, PA., June 27 1801, and was the daughter of Joseph Skinner. She was the mother of eight children, five of whom are living, namely: Mrs. Shenck of White Mills, Mrs. James Frantz, Mrs. C. C. Quick, and Charles Belknap of this village, and D. K. Belknap, station agent at Hornellsville. The funeral took place this afternoon at 2:30 o'clock.
(My mother and genealogy sites refer to her as "Susan". This obit is the first time I saw her as "Susannah".)
