In 1826 he, in company with others, came to Canada and settled in Waterloo County, Ontario, near Preston, where he worked at his trade, carpentering and cabinet making, with old Henry Brower. Later on he built the Centreville Hotel where he resided for some years, working at his trade. He was married to Mary Moyer who was born August 31st, 1800 and died at Freeport, October 7th, 1888. He died August 15th, 1865. To them were born three children"

      ________________________

      Post office closed - Freeport post office, which has been in existence for the last 50 years or more, was closed last week by order of the Postmaster General. This office, which was opened in the early sixties. In the old Academy building, (now a mass of ruins), had for its first postmaster Mr. Charles Lutz, only brother Mr. Hy. Lutz of this place. Later on it was transferred to the house now occupied by Mr. Adam Sherman, when Mr Jacob Lutz father the Lutz brothers took over the office. Next and turn as postmaster came Mr. John Schlichter, who was followed by Rev. J. B. Bowman with Miss Harriet Pogson as deputy. On the removal of Mr. Bowman to Berlin Miss Pogson assumed the duties of postmistress, which she filled for some years. On her resignation the office was moved to Centreville, with Mr. Ferdinand Latsch in charge. When he resigned Mr. Jacob Ebel was appointed in his stead, and for the past few years he has been our postmaster, until now on the closing of the office he has been relieved of its duties. With the introduction of the ever popular rural mail delivery there is no call for this office, and said it was closed. 'Aurevoir.
