HILDEBRAND, Martha (Horner)

    Johnstown Tribune, 13 Mar 1889, Contributed by Sharon Trosan

On Sunday morning, March 10, 1889, the aged lady whose name appears above breathed her last at the residence of her son-in-law, Abram ANGUS, in East Taylor Township where she has been making her home for some time. Mrs. Hildebrand, whose maiden name was HORNER, was a daughter of Adam and Hannah Horner and was born in Richland Township in September 1808. About the year 1829 she was married to Abram Hildebrand, son of George Hildebrand. Shortly after their marriage they moved to the farm on which she died, six miles north of Johnstown, on the Ebensburg road, which was then a dense forest, where they toiled hard for a livelihood. Three children were born to Mr. and Mrs. Hildebrand, as follows: Jacob A., now a resident of South Fork; Aaron W., a resident of Mineral Point, and Mary wife of Abram Angus, at whose residence she died in the eightieth year of her age. In February 1840, her husband died, leaving her and her children (then aged respectively ten, six, and one year) to earn a livelihood as best they could. Beside two sons and a daughter, there are nineteen grand and six great-grandchildren who survive her. Mrs. Hildebrand was the last one remaining of the Adam Horner family. The remains were interred Wednesday March 6th in the Wesley Chapel burying ground.
