      Hannah Jane Conklin, Ramapo's Centenarian, Dies at Suffern Home
      Hannah Jane Conklin, 100 years old and a lifelong resident of Rockland County, died peacefully at her home in Suffern last night, shortly after singing her favorite hymn "Lord Raise My Feet Up Higher". She is survived by two children, 34 grandchildren, 68 great-grandchildren, and 22 great-great-grandchildren.
      Mrs. Conklin often told her children how, when she was a young girl, it was hard or sometimes impossible to summon a doctor and she had assisted at the birth of many of the children of her neighbors.
      Last July 6, the 100th anniversary of her birth, she reigned at an open house celebration and hundreds of her friends and relatives crowded her home to pay their respects.
      Her favorite pastime in later years was the singing of very old hymns, most of which cannot be found in modern books. Her grandchildren searched in vain to find them, but so indelibly were they imprinted on Mrs. Conklin's mind she could remember them word-for-word right to the moment of her death.
      Mrs. Conklin, the widow of Elias Conklin, is survived by a daughter, Mrs. C. M. Williams of Chico Calif. and a son Elias of Suffern as well as her grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and great-great-grandchildren. At the time of her death, she was residing with Theodore and Violet Corsner, grand-children.
      Funeral services will be held at the Sniffen Funeral Home, Spring Valley, Sunday at 8 p.m., the Rev. William H. Jewitt officiating.
      Interment will be in the West New Hempstead Cemetery, Monday at 10 a.m.
