  • Notes 
    • John W. Wagler In the death of John W. Wagler which occurred at the home of his son, Mr. Chr. Wagler, in South Easthope on March 31st another of the old pioneers of this district has passed to the Great Beyond. The late Mr. Wagler reached the advanced age of 89 years, 4 months and 7 days. He was born In Elsace Lorraine on November 24th, 1842. In the year 1848 his parents migrated to America and the family settled on the farm at Baden now owned by Mr. J. P Livingston. The family crossed the ocean in the old sailing ships and it was five weeks that these pioneers were on the water when they reach New York from Havre. In his youth the late Mr. Wagler pledged his religious faith in the church of his forefathers, the Amish-Mennonites, in which faith he worshipped as a true Christian all his life. He married Anna Zehr, of Wilmot, and with her lived in the holy bonds of matrimony for 63 years. Their union was blessed with seven children, six of whom survive. After his marriage the deceased farmed for some years near New Dundee and later settled in South Easthope. He retired from active work in 1905 and he and his wife had since made their home with their son, Mr. Christian Wagler in South Easthope. Besides his widow he leaves five sons and one daughter, 29 grandchildren and 42 great grand-children. The surviving members of the family are Moses and Noah, of the Gravel Road, Chris and Joseph in South Easthope, John of Wellesley village, and Mrs. Nich. D. Roth, of Clarence, N.Y. The funeral was held to the Amish Mennonite Church on the 16th line East Zorra and a very large concourse of sorrowing relatives and friends attended to pay their last tribute of respect to the departed. The funeral services were conducted by Bishop Daniel S. Jutzi, of East Zorra, assisted by Chris. Gascho, of Baden, and Daniel Lebold, of Wellesley. Interment was made in the adjoining cemetery.
