Cullen of New Cumberland, the latter now being at the point of death.
Mrs. Luke was born in Edinburg, Scotland, and came to America with her parents, John and Ellen McNeil, while in her early youth. The family settled in Pittsburg, Pa. After a few years they removed to Frostburg, Md., thence to Steubenville, O. Six years ago the deceased was united in marriage with James Luke and removed with him to New Cumberland. She was a life long member of the Presbyterian church, and was held in high esteem by a wide circle of friends.
