    • An Old Settler Gone.

      On Thursday last, Sept. 6th, as we went to press Mr. Ledogarius Beisang died at Marystown, at the residence of his son Bl. Beisang. Mr. Beisang was an old settler of Eagle Creek, and remained a citizen of that town until about two years ago. He located a claim in Eagle Creek on the road to Bloomington Ferry in 1854, and the next year built him a house and moved into it with his family. His son Frank Beisang took a claim adjoining him and in two or three years afterwards his son-in-law Mr. Francis Stemmer, bought an adjacent claim where he still lives. Afterwards another son (William) purchased adjoining on the west, where he still lives. Bl. Beisang having located at Marystown two years ago, the old gentleman took up his residence with him until his death, at the ripe age of eighty-one years. Mr. Beisang was a native of Canada. He was a quiet old gentleman and enjoyed the esteem and respect of all who knew him.

      Among the first Catholic settlers, early in the thirties, were Blasius Beysang and his brother William, a little west of Heidelberg. In the house of the former Mass was celebrated for some time.
