Death of Mrs. Elizabeth Frost at the Home of Her Sister, Mrs. Van Denbergh.

Mrs. Elizabeth Frost died at 5 A.M. to-day at the residence of her sister, Mrs. W. L. Van Denbergh, on the Boulevard, aged sixty-nine years. Her death was due to a stomach difficulty which proved quite puzzling to her physicians. Mrs. Frost was the eldest child of the late Howland Fish, of Glen, and was born in Johnstown. The most of her youth was passed in the town of Glen, where she was married in early life to Edmund Frost. The couple went to New Orleans to reside. At that time the journey took a month, by the shortest and quickest route. Mr. and Mrs. Frost lived in New Orleans till the war broke out. The wife came north but her husband and his partner were detained in the city for a year afterward, or until the Union troops took possession. Since that time Mrs. Frost's home has been in Cambridge, Mass. Her husband died about a year ago. She came to Amsterdam about six months ago with the intention of spending the rest of her life here. Her intention has been fulfilled, but in a much shorter time than was expected. Mrs. Frost was a lady of high culture and many accomplishments, possessing all the graces of Christian womanhood. Her place in life was filled in a manner that left nothing to be desired, and her memory will long be green in the hearts of her large circle of sorrowing relatives and friends. She leaves two brothers, Judge Frothingham Fish and Austin Fish, of Fultonville, and one sister, Mrs. W. L. Van Denbergh. The funeral will be held Thursday at 2 P.M. at the residence of Mr. Van Denbergh. Rev. C. H. Baldwin and Rev. Washington Frothingham of Fonda, a distant relative of the family, will officiate. The remains will be interred in the family lot in the Fultonville cemetery.
