- BARTELS, FREDERICK
Early on Friday, at his home in Hespeler. He was in his 73rd year, having been born in Mecklenburg-Schwerin, Germany on August 6th 1843. On July 16th 1869, he married Sophia Schlueter and emigrated to Canada in the same year, settling in the vicinity of Hespeler and a short time later moving to lot 5, 1st concession, Puslinch, where he farmed successfully until his retirement a number of years ago. Mr. Bartels was highly thought of in the community where he resided so long. Upright and honest in all his dealings, a regular attendant of the Hespeler Lutheran Church, of which he was a life-long member. Independent in politics, voting Conservative chiefly but many times Liberal according to the choice of candidates. A good neighbour in the truest sense of the word, he will long be kindly remembered. He was quiet and unassuming and through his thorough knowledge of farming, amassed a considerable of this world's goods. Mr. Bartels took part in the 90-day war between Prussia and Austria-Hungary in 1866, being present at and taking part in the great battle of Konigratz or Sadowa in 1866 and holding a medal for that campaign. He served as a captain in the German army at the siege of Paris in 1871(maybe 1861?). His brother, Charles served with him in that war. The funeral on Sunday afternoon was very largely attended, the service being conducted from his residence by Rev. Fiebelhorn, pastor of the Lutheran Church. Pallbearers: his sons, Charles and Fred; his sons-in-law, Herman Prestien and Archie McKellar; and his nephews, Fred and Joseph Bartels. The many friends, who gathered to follow his body to its last resting place, attested to the respect and esteem in which he was held. Besides his aged widow, he is survived by a family of two daughters and two sons, Charles in Hespeler; Frederick on the homestead; Mrs. Herman Prestien and Mrs. Archie McKellar; two brothers, Charles in Clearview and William of Preston.
Peter Tucker of the Evangelical United Brethren Church in Morriston officiated. Pallbearers: Ronald Hamilton, Howard Lawrence, Dan McEdwards, Irvine Hamilton, Ronald Bell and Jim Bell all grandsons. Interment Crown Cemetery, Puslinch.
