Mrs. Leah Angeny, whose maiden name was Fretz, was one of a family of ten sisters who all lived to grow to womanhood and had homes and families of their own. The oldest of them lived to the age of over ninety-two years. Mrs. Angeny was next to the youngest of the sisters and outlived the others about twelve years. She was the mother of eight daughters and one son. She leaves to survive her six daughters, thirty-nine grand children and forty-one great-grand children, who are living in nine different states of the Union, in Africa, India and Korea. For the past eight years she has been a resident of Lewisburg, Pa., living with her son-in-law, William Shields. She was born in Bucks Co., of this State, on the first day of October, 1810, and closed her long life on the morning of January 25th, making her age 91 years, 3 months and 24 days. She was married October 21, 1828, to Abraham Angeny, with whom she lived more than fifty-one years. They celebrated their golden wedding in 1878. During the dreadful fire in Milton, May 14, 1880, her husband, Mr. Angeny, perished in the flames, being bewildered and losing his way after being directed to a way of escape when nearly surrounded by the fire. Within the last three years two of her daughters have celebrated their golden weddings, and they, with their husbands are still living. Very early in life she became a Christian and was identified with the Mennonite church, in her native county. After coming to Union Co., where she did not have the opportunity of a church of that denomination she united with the Lutheran church of Milton, and later that of Lewisburg. During the last months of her life she was a great sufferer, and often wished that she might be relieved and go to her rest. At the last the end came quietly and peacefully, and she is, without a doubt, enjoying the rest that remaineth to the people of God. Her burial took place on Monday afternoon - 27, in the Lower Cemetery at Milton. Martin and Leah Fretz Angeny lived on property known as Angeny's Mill, in Bedininster Twp. (Bucks Co., PA) until the spring of 1848, when they moved to Union Co., PA., and later (1859) to Milton, Northumberland Co., PA, where Abraham perished in the great fire of Milton in 1880, in his 78th year. He was a carpenter and cabinet-maker by trade, and he and Leah were Mennonites. Leah was the daughter of Martin Fretz, of Hilltown.
