With the exception of a short time spent in Williams County, Mr. and Mrs. Haupt lived in Crawford County until about four years ago, since when they have lived in Erie County. Mrs. Haupt won the esteem of all who knew her by her pure, noble womanhood. In every relation as wife, mother, friend, and neighbor, she was good and faithful. On march 18, 1866, she united with the Methodist Episcopal Church in New Washington, Ohio and throughout her long illness she was wonderfully sustained by her Christian faith, and hope of immortal life. She expressed herself as prepared for the change, and peacefully fell asleep in her Lord.
