    • Mr. George John Guenther was born at Kling, Germany, and died here March 20th, 1896, aged 59 years, 1 month, 27 days. He married twice; His first wife was Mary Sachs (a sister to John, Henry, and Conrad), who died on April I I th, 1881, aged 42 years, 8 months; and his second, Amelia Schramm, born at Preston, who died here on January 8th, 1909, aged 61 years, 9 months, one day.

      Mr. Guenther served on the council and was assessor many years. Upon the death of Mr. George Guenther the furniture and undertaking business was carried on for a time by his son, David, who was a carpenter by trade, and then was sold to Stager & Company who later removed to other premises. The Guenther store was in the building which now houses the Galt Reporter Hespeler Office. David, born here in 1865, died in 1924.1a
