At the home of her son-in-law, Joseph P. Leedom, on Dean street, this borough, Elizabeth M. Wickersham passed quietly away yesterday afternoon at the advanced age of nearly 87 years.
She was born in West Bradford township in 1822, her parents being John and Lydia Worth, and the parental home near Romansville. She was married to Jacob S. Wickersham, with whom she spent many years of happy wedded life.
Some thirty years ago, and subsequent to the death of her husband, she moved to West Chester, where her time had since been spent, excepting during two intervals, when she lived at Malvern and at Newtown, Pa. She was a lifelong member of the Society of Friends, her membership having at Bradford Meeting, in Romansville, and in the quiet graveyard attached to this meeting she will be laid away. By a large circle of friends she was beloved especially because of her genial kindliness and hospitality, which spirit characterized her life and pervaded her home throughout her many years.1
