AGED RESIDENT PASSES AWAY:  Mrs. Eliza Casterline of West Pittston died yesterday after an illness that had confined her to her bed for about a year.  She resided with her daughter, Mrs. Alvin Holmes.  Mrs. Casterline had passed the allotted years of life, being 91 years of age, having been born in Sussex County, N.J. in 1810.  From her birthplace she removed to Orange, in this county, and about twenty years ago came to Pittston, where she had since resided.  In her younger years she was active and popular among her friends.  She was the widow of the late James Casterline and is survived by five children – John of Scranton, Joseph and Asa of Orange and Mrs. Alvin Holmes and Mrs. C.H. Williams of West Pittston.  The funeral will occur on Friday from the home of her daughter, Mrs. Alvin Holmes of Montgomery street.  The funeral will be private.  Interment will be in Eaton cemetery, Orange.
