On Monday, the funeral of the late Miss Misner took place from the residence of Mr. John Sager, to Troy Cemetery, the services being conducted by Rev. T. H. Ibbott. Miss Misner was a well known resident of Troy, having lived there many years with her relatives, Mr. and Mrs. Adam Misner, the former of whom, became famous by reason of his longevity. After the death of her foster parents, Miss Misner spent the most of her time with her sister near Hamilton, and had returned very recently on a visit to her friends in and about her old home. While at Mrs. Sager's she was taken ill and died.

The sister referred to in Kate's obit was likely Eliza Misener Vansickle, Hattie Wreaks' mother.
