Mrs. Elizabeth M. Beck, of Red Bank, died at the residence of her daughter, Mrs. George Brand, on Mechanic street, last Saturday. Mrs. Beck came to this country from Bavaria about forty years ago and took up her residence in New York city. During the cholera epidemic of 1848 Mrs. Beck's husband caught the disease and died after a few days' illness. After her husband's death Mrs. Beck came to Red Bank, where she resided up to the time of her death. She was a great sufferer from rheumatism, and had been an invalid from that complaint for a long time previous to her death. Mrs. Beck leaves three children - two daughters and a son, the latter being John Beck, the confectioner on Front street. Her daughters are Mrs. Mary Laug and Mrs. George Brand, both of Red Bank. The funeral was held on Monday, the Rev. J. K. Manning officiating. The remains were buried at Fair View.

Death notice lists her age as 75 years and 3 months.
