  • Notes 
    • Keith Larzelere notes:

      "From apparently a September 1905 newspaper

      Mrs. Rebekah Larzelere, Eldest daughter of the late Captain William T. Elder, of the artillery service of the War of 1812, and widow of William Larzelere, a merchant broker and a member of City Councils, died yesterday morning in her eighty-fifth year.

      Mrs. Larzelere was prominent in church and charity work, being instrumental in the formation of two parishes, that of the Holy Cross of Germantown, now St. Michael's and the Incarnation, whose church is at Broad and Jefferson sts. She was a lineal descendant of one of Philadelphia's old shipping merchants, William Thomas Smith, a West India planter who came here before the Revolution. His wharves are still known as Smith's wharves.

      Mrs. Larzelere was actively engaged in charities for the soldiers during the Civil War, and especially interested in the Cooper Shop Hospital and the Volunteer Refreshment Saloon. Her two oldest sons were in the army then. She is survived by two sons--Clifford Earle and Washington Irving--and two daughters--Miss Blanche Elder and Mrs. Annie Elizabeth Haverstick.

      The funeral will take place next Thursday morning at 10 A.M. , from her late residence, 4431 Sansom st., and other services will follow at 11 o'clock in the Church of St. James the Less, Falls of Schuykill. Her childrens' grief has been intensified by the report of the sudden death by heart disease of Mrs. Larzelere's nephew, Harry E. Lynn, of Mt. Holly." [4]
