Mrs. Lydia F. Morrell, wife of Jacob Morrell of Little Silver, died on Friday of bronchitis, aged 74 years. The funeral was held yesterday afternoon at the Methodist church at Little Silver and was in charge of Rev. J. W. Presby. Burial was made in the Little Silver cemetery

Mrs. Morrell was born at Cranbury. Her maiden name was Lydia F. Embly. When 24 years of age she married Mr. Morrell, who was a landscape gardener. After a few months she and her husband moved to Red Bank, and about a year later they built a house at Little Silver and moved there. Thirty years ago Mrs. Morrell was taken sick with chronic bronchitis and she had been an invalid ever since. She had been a member of the Methodist church over fifty years. Although an invalid and unable to go out much, she had in her long residence at Little Silver made a large circle of friends. She leaves five daughters. They are Mrs. David Moore of Little Silver, Mrs. W. B. Asay, Mrs. Raymond Wilson and Mrs. Alonzo Fields of Red Bank, and Mrs. Richard Dear of Providence, Rhode Island. Eleven grandchildren and one great-grandchild also survive her.
