Taken from the Delphos Herald, Thursday, January 24, 1897--

Mrs. Lavina Rupert passed away Monday afternoon at her home in Marbletown at the age of 85 years. Death was caused by paralysis and old age. The funeral will be held near Mendon, Wednesday. Mrs. Rupert was married before she was 15 years old and her husband was a soldier in the war of 1812. He has been dead several years and Mrs. Rupert has been receiving a widow's pension for the services of her husband in that war. She was the mother of about sixteen children, most of whom are still living. Five of her sons fought in the war of the rebellion to preserve the flag and the nation's honor. There are few mothers who lent such valuable aid to the Federal army.

Daughter of John Parrott and Elizabeth Hall.
