Lincoln County Beacon, Sept. 24, 1885
---Mamie, daughter of O.B. and Antoinette S. Edgett, was born June 20, 1882, and died Sept. 18, 1885. Owing to an accident which happened two years ago, she has been a constant sufferer up to the time of her death [in Kansas City]. The remains were brought back to Lincoln, where they were interred on Saturday, after appropriate services at the church, conducted by Rev. W.D. Ward. Mamie is no longer a sufferer. While here she bore it all with a degree of patience which would seem remakrable even in an older person. Today she lives in a land whose inhabitants never say, I am sick. With her all is well; with the bereaved parents there is sadness of heart, and many friends offer their sympathy.

---Auguste ERHARDT the daughter of Michael and Johanna LUECK (LUCK), was born in Fuhlbeck, Germany, August 2, 1843. In the year 1868 she came to this country and lived in Junction city, Kansas. In 1870 she came to Lincoln and was united in marriage to Ernst ERHARDT. They were among the first settlers in this county. Mrs. ERHARDT after a full measure of life, both sad and joyful, reached the end of her pilgrimage, April 15, 1922. They were blessed with a family of 7 children, all of whom survive her except one son, who preceded her to the grave. Her dear husband passed away September 30, 1910. Mrs ERHARDT was a kind neighbor and a true friend. She fulfilled earnestly and conscientiously all her duties. Her labors were not in vain. She reaped even here a beautiful regard, for her children were very fond of her, and during her long illness nursed her with loyal and untiring love. From childhood she belonged to the Lutheran church and remained faithful. Her faith in the Savior made her strong to leave her burden. Without any fear she bravely faced death. She knew where she was going. It is certainly well with her and she is now happy in the sight of the Lamb of God. The funeral services were held at the house, on Monday at 2:30 p. m. and the remains were interred in the Lincoln Cemetery: thereupon services were continued at St. John's Lutheran church, Rev. H. KROENING officiating, assisted by a quartett and the choir, ably directed by Prof. P. L. GABBERT. May she rest in Peace.
