    • HARVEY EDLER PASSED AWAY IN DETROIT
      His Remains Brought to Elmira For Burial
      There died in Detroit, Mich., on Sunday, Jan. 18, 1920, a former resident of Elmira, in the person of Harvey Edler, son of the late Mr. and Mrs. John Edler. The cause of his death was anemia. The deceased was 29 years, 9 months and 15 days of age.
      Mr. Edler was born on his father's farm, north of Elmira and removed while yet a boy, with his parents to Elmira. He attended public school here and afterwards worked for some years at the Elmira Furniture Co. A number of years ago, he went to Detroit, where he had ever since resided.
      Among his companions, he was very popular and his and his sisters expressed in few words his attributes, when they said. He was a good boy.
      As will have been noted, his parents predeceased him. His remains were brought to Elmira and laid to rest in Elmira Union Cemetery on Wednesday afternoon at 2 o'clock, from the residence of his sisters, Misses Carrie and Marie Edler. The funeral was private and by request no flowers were sent. Rev. Mr. Brown of Zion Evangelical Church, officiated at the house and cemetery.
      To the Misses Edler the sympathy of this community will go out in these hours of their bereavement.
