The Reading Adler

Another potential gem has been discovered in the search for Jacob Hummel and his ancestry!

Today at the Tri County Heritage Society I discovered an index record of Jacob Hummel's obituary from The Reading Adler, a Pennsylvania German newspaper published in Reading, PA during the 18th & 19th centuries:

Oct 29 Edition
Oct 23 Jacob Hummel 88/8/18 Rob T

The next step will be to obtain the obitiary from the Adler. Hopefully, it will reveal something of Jacob's origin. Any volunteers to translate it from German?
