New Jersey Obituaries - 1899 - Mrs. Sarah V. (Vanderveer) Applegate

Mrs. Sarah V. (Vanderveer) Applegate, widow of Obadiah H. Applegate of Freehold, died of the grip on Sunday of last week. She was 88 years old. About four years ago she suffered a stroke of paralysis and she had been almost helpless ever since. Mrs. Applegate was the daughter of Jane and Garrett Vanderveer, who lived near Marlboro. In 1826 she married Obadiah H. Applegate of Freehold, who died about 25 years ago. She was the mother of five children, only one of whom survives her-Mrs. William Wallace Hartshorne of Freehold.
