'The following obituary notice of Mrs. Louisa Ringwalt (whose remains were buried in the Lutheran graveyard, New Holland), written by Dr. Henderson, appeared in a newspaper punlished in Waynesburg, Chester County, shortly after her death; Died, at New Holland, on the 25th of February, 1835, Mrs. Louisa Ringwalt, in the 29th year of her age, wife of Col. Samuel Ringwalt.
The announcement of the death of the aged or the very young seldom excites in us an unusual sensation. Because each season, as, with its vicissitude of weather, it successively comes, threatens to sever the attenuated and brittle cord of the one, while the latter are grequent subjects of disease, which their tender frames enable them long to endure, and whose sufferings, generally short, we are well assured, are but the preludes to a blissful change. But when we hear of those taken away in the noon of life, while dispensing usefulness and felicity around them, our tenderest sensibilities are awakened; and a feeling thrills coldly through every nerve.
This fact we behold strikingly exemplified in the decease of Mrs. Ringwalt in the prime of womanhood, a wife with a young and interesting family, one a tender babe, growing up around her, whose infantile years allow them not to estimate the loss which in a mother's death they have sustained. Her character was domestic; she was kind and conciliatory to all who knew her; to an attentive and affectionate husband, always attractive and engaging. As a daughter and a sister, her value is best learned amid the tears and regrets of her own kindred.
