  • Notes 
    • Earl Bingeman Loses Life By Drowning Was Son of Mr. and Mrs. J. E. Bingeman

      The sad news was received here on Monday night that Earl A. Bingeman, of this town, was drowned in Lake Erie, that evening. Word was telephoned to the parents here shortly after the accident and his mother and brother, Perlus, left immediately for Port Colborne. According to reports he and two others, Owen Savage and Ernest Rudd, were out in a dinghy. The boat suddenly tilted in the choppy lake and Earl Bingeman was thrown into the water. Savage also fell overboard but Budd owner of the boat managed to stay in the boat. They were about 100 yards off shore when the accident happened. Savage managed to swim ashore and Bingeman pulled out strongly for shore but disappeared in the choppy water. His body was recovered by bathers half an hour later, but all endeavors at rescusitation failed.

      Mrs. Bingeman, with whom her husband had been swimming a short time before, saw the accident from the shore. The accident victim was born in Haysville 29 years ago and came to New Hamburg at an early age. Completing his school education here he clerked in Mr. G. B. Hathaway's store here, later going to Kitchener and then to Galt. For the past three years he had been manager of a gents furnishing store at Port Colborne. He was married two years ago to Miss Jean Wiggins, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Percy Wiggins, of Galt, who is left to mourn his tragic death, besides his parents here, six brothers and three sisters, Harold, of Ingersoll, Lloyd, of Buffalo, Stanley, of Sudbury, Nile, of London, Perlus and Jack, at home, Edith, of Hamilton General Hospital staff, (Vera) Mrs. Harry Barnes, Ingersoll and (Marian) Mrs. Homer Watson, of Montreal.

      The late Mr. Bingeman was an obliging young man and was on his way to a successful career. His tragic and untimely death is deeply regretted by a large circle of friends. The remains were brought here yesterday and the funeral took place yesterday with service at his parent's home at three p.m. followed by internment in Riverside Cemetery. A large concourse of sorrowing relatives and friends were in attendance. The sympathy of all goes out to the bereaved ones in their sad loss.
