LADIES' LIST
. . . . .Auxer, Mrs. Harriet. . . . . . Auxer, Miss Hallie
She is also on the List 3 August 1864.
(Her father, Philip Kleiss Auxer did not sell his home in Conoy Twp until 1 April 1866. He is found in the Harrisburg City Directory in 1867-68 for the first time. What is she doing in Harrisburg in 1863?)
ILL FOR A Long time
Yesterday afternoon occurred the death, after a long illness with catarrhal trouble, of Mrs. Harriet Auxer, at her late residence, No. 407 Boas Street. Deceased was in her 52nd year, and a member of the Fourth Street Church of God. One daughter, Mrs Dr. Keefer of Altooona, survives. The funeral will take place Tuesday afternoon at 2 oclock.
Harriet Auxer's letters were issued to Mary E. Keefer, 17 March 1892. DOD: 11 March 1892. Alonzo G. Lehman and W.D. Lucas were sureties; bond was 00.
No record of Harriet ever marrying; yet obituary talks of Mary E. Auxer Keefer being her daughter. She is mentioned in Catharine Niess' diary as Mary's mother, yet is on the census at one point as the "daughter" of Philip and Catharine Auxer"
parents were her sponsors at baptism - July 1, 1841
age 51 years at death; picture of headstone in file.
