    • Obituary - Charlotte Jane (Weyl) Dorney

      "Mrs. Charlotte Dorney was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Weyl. She was born in Berlin, Germany, May 19, 1831 and died in Oklahoma City, Okla., February 16, 1916, aged 84 years, 8 months and 27 days. Her death was caused by an attack of the grippe. She came to this country with her parents and landed in New York in 1843 at the age of 12 years. From there, the family came to Wabash County to reside, settling on a farm near Lancaster.

      On May 24, 1849, the subject of this sketch was united in marriage to John Dorney, who preceded his wife to the grave a number of years ago.

      To their union were born six children, two of whom, Mrs. Mary Slichenmeyer and Mrs. Sarah M. Luehring, preceded their mother to the grave. The surviving children are Frank Dorney of Mt. Carmel; Mrs. Henrietta Harrison of Lancaster; Mrs. Ella Newman of Oklahoma City, Okla., and Henry W. Dorney of Hooppole, Ill.
      She is also survived by three brothers and one sister. These are Fred Weyl of Bridgeport, Ill.; Charles Weyl of St. Paul, Minn., William Weyl of Lancaster, and Mrs. Lizzie Strine, also of Lancaster.

      Twelve grandchildren, twenty-one great-grandchildren and other friends and relatives also mourn her loss.

      Mrs. Dorney was a good mother and a faithful Christian, having been a member of the Evangelical Church at Lancaster for practically her entire lifetime.

      The body was brought to Mount Carmel from Oklahoma City and taken to Lancaster for burial, the funeral being very larely attended."
