(Research):Died of measles.

On the 13th of January, 1866, near Milton, Northumberland Co., Pa., Leah, daughter of Abraham and Leah Angeny (formerly of Bucks Co.), aged 28 years and 5 days. She had been sick with the measles, but apparently recovered, returned home from her sister's and immediately took sick again; suffering greatly for three days, when the spirit left its clayey tenement. During her sickness, she spoke of death frequently, and said, "I do not think I shall get well this time, but feel resigned to the will of God." On the morning before her death, her sister said to her, "I do not think you can live over today. Do you feel willing to die ?" She said, "Yes: death seems best;" then added, "But not my will be done, but thine, 0 Lord." A little while after another sister was standing by her bedside when she repeated the following lines: "Shall we know each other there in that beautiful land?" In three months, three new graves have been made, and three loved ones from the same household are sleeping there, but our Father knoweth best, and He doeth all things well. She was buried in Harmony Cemetery, Milton, PA. She was unmarried.
