    From a Dayton 1914 newspaper:
    At 100 Does Household Work
    Recalls Strenuous Early Pioneer Days
    Mrs. Elizabeth Zaring (sic) Bentley, of National Avenue is nearing the hundredth milestone in her journey through life.
    Born in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, July 22, 1814, she moved with her parents and family by wagon train to Madison Township, Montgomery County, so long ago that she neither remembers the day or the year. Building a camp in the depth of a forest of some hundred acres, which her father bought, the felling of the timber and building a home come as the first work in this section, she recalls from memory.
    A neighbor boy came, wooed and won Miss Zaring (sic) and on November 20, 1848, Isaac Bentley and Elizabeth Zaring (sic) were married moving to an 80 acre farm in Darke County, near Castine, Ohio. From a wooded landscape dotted here and there with the open spaces where the farmers planted their crops, Mrs. Bentley saw the landscape change until only wooded plots broke the monotony of fields of waving grain.
    After spending thirty years on the Darke county farm she took up her residence in Castine, where her husband died thirty years ago. With family married and scattered, lonesomeness began stealing into her life and three years ago she came to Dayton taking up her residence with son, Jacob Bentley, of National Avenue. For one so seasoned with time and the weight of years, Mrs. Bentley is hale and hearty, enjoying the best of health and is able to go about the house and al* *in little duties that occupy her time. Memory is becoming faulty, so days and dates and important events in history cannot be recalled easily. Relatives and friends are planning a quiet centenary celebration in her honor during the month of July.

    This newspaper could be the Dayton Daily News, Dayton (Daily)Journal, or Dayton Herald.
