|Death of Mrs. Caroline C. Akers.|
Mrs. Caroline C. Akers died at the residence of her brother, Mr. George Rhey, of Millwood, Westmoreland county, on Wednesday, Nov. 24, 1886, aged 70 years. She was born in Munster, this county, in 1816, and was a daughter of John Rhey, one of the earliest settlers in that place, who went from there to Westmoreland county and died at Millwood many years ago. She was married to her husband, Mr. L. Akers, who survives her, in 1843, and was the mother of Mr. George Akers, local editor of the Johnstown Tribune. The deceased was a lady of great culture and refinement and received a thorough education in her youth at Mrs. Oliver's young ladies' seminary, which was situate near the site of the present railroad station at Braddock, a few miles east of Pittsburg. Her remains were interred in the Catholic cemetery at New Derry, Westmoreland county. May her soul rest in peace.
