686 Lizzie C. Marshall, b. at ” Walnut Grove,” Mason Co., Ky., July 27, 1841, = October 12, 1871, Rev. Maurice Waller, b. at Maysville, Ky., April 7, 1840.
Lizzie is a tall, handsome and accomplished lady. Her letters to me show the ability and style of one highly accomplished. Rev. Mr. Waller had his literary education at Center College, Kentucky, and was graduated in 1864, at the Theological Seminary of the Northwest, at Chicago.
On account of ill health, he did not preach for several yea.rs. From 1867 to 1872, he preached to the Presbyterian Church at Hancock, Ind. From 1872 to 1878, he was pastor of the church at Petersburg, IL. From 1878 to 1880, he preached at Helena, Ark. He became in 1880, pastor of the Presbyterian Church at Manchester, Ohio, where he is now preaching. He is an earnest and successful preacher – as a learned theologian, and as an able ecclesiastic, he stands high with his brethren. Mr. WaIler is a son of Hon. Henry Waller, of Chicago, and Sarah Bell Langhorne, who were married May 3, 1837. Mrs. S. B. Waller died in 1883, in Chicago.

Many Attend The Funeral of the Late Dr. Maurice Waller, Who Died at the Home of His Sister in Chicago, Ill., Tuesday—Buried in Maysville Cemetery.
The funeral of Dr. Maurice Waller was held in the First Presbyterian Church yesterday afternoon, the body of the beloved minister having arrived at 10 o’clock in the morning.
The burial was made in the Maysville cemetery.
A large number of the friends and admirers of Dr. Waller gathered at the church to pay a silent but personal tribute to his life. Huge banks of flowers told mutely the esteem in which he was held and though the audience was composed almost entirely of the older residents of the city and county it showed that his good was not to be interred with his bones.
Dr. John Barbour, pastor of the First Presbyterian Church, assisted by Rev. H. Kerr Taylor of the Central Presbyterian Church and Rev. Emil Bauerman of Flemingsburg, conducted the funeral ceremony Dr. Barbour paid a splendid tribute to the life of Dr. Waller, his connection with the old First Church and spoke earnestly of his Christian life and his work for his Master.
The pallbearers were Messrs. Paxton Marshall, Ben Marshall, John Chambers, Frank Ellison, J. Foster Barbour and R. A. Cochran. During the removal of the body from the church the bell tolled in respect to the dead. A quartet composed of Miss Mary Wilson, Mr. and Mrs. J. Foster Barbour and Mr. R. A. Cochran rendered two beautiful hymns. The interment was made in the Maysville Cemetery. A short service at the grave was conducted by Dr. Barbour.
