Noah A. Horner, Sr., aged fifty-nine years, five months, and five days, died at 2 o'clock this morning at his home at Glessner, Somerset county, in which vicinity he had made his home practically all his life. Mr. Horner had been in ill health for about a year and his death was due to consumption.
Noah Horner was a member of one of the most prominent and oldest families of Somerset County, having been a son of Mrs. Herman Umberger, whose husband was so cruelly murdered years ago. Mrs. Umberger is now eighty-seven years of age, and visited her son not very long ago. Noah Horner's wife died about four years ago, and he is survived by four sons and three daughters, as follows: J. H. Horner, of No. 174 Griffith street, Seventeenth Ward; Catherine, wife of Noah Baker, of Lincoln Township, Somerset County; G. R. Horner, of Jenner Township; Susan, wife of Jacob Swank, of Park avenue; Nannie, wife of Henry Swank, of Lincoln Township; Joseph H. Horner, of Ferndale, and Noah A. Jr., of Jenner Township. One brother, Reuben, of Jenner Township, and one sister, Mrs. Lucinda Friedline, wife of Adam Friedline of Jenner Township, also survive, as do fifteen grandchildren. Mr. Horner was a member of the Lutheran Church and of the Golden Eagles and American Mechanics.
Funeral services will be held over his remains at 10 o'clock Thursday morning in the Mt. Zion Lutheran Chruch near Glessner, the Rev. Berkey to be in charge. Interment will be made in the church cemetery.
