  • Notes 
    • Fifth Line Wellesley, March 11, 1901
      It is with deep sorrow that we have to report the death of Mr. Jacob Wagler, who died on Tuesday, the 5th inst. at 5 o'clock in the morning. The funeral took place on Thursday morning at 9, and was well attended. Mr. Wagler was the first Amish settler in this community and was a man highly respected by all who came in contact with him. Many a weary traveller found shelter under his roof and he always was kind to them. No doubt he will be much missed. The sympathy of the community goes out to the bereaved family in this their sad affliction.
