  • Notes 
    • Benjamin Bricker," was born June 8th, 1837. He and Mr. Patton were the proprietors of the Waterloo Woolen Mills and were doing a large and well-paying business for some years. But his sudden change of life from that of a farmer, accustomed to out door work, to that of an office clerk, besides inhaling the poisoned air arising from the various dyes used in the woolen mills, caused his constitution, which was none of the strongest, to give way and he, after an illness of some time, died of consumption, June 9th, 1869. He was not married."
