  • Notes 
    • Mr. Casper Ziegler
      A prominent figure in the life of Elmira was removed Saturday afternoon when Casper Ziegler passed away in his 85th year. Seven years ago he suffered a stroke, and had been confined to his bed for the past three years.
      The late Mr. Ziegler was born December 30, 1843 in Bavaria. He came with his parents to Canada in 1846 and settled in Waterloo County. On November 3, 1870, he married Elisabeth Klein, of Sebringville. They moved to Salem where he carried on a harness business for 17 years. In 1886 they settled in Elmira where he continued the harness business for several years, and later took an interest in the Elmira Advertiser. He retired in 1903.
      He is survived by his widow and three children, Mrs. H. Battenberg and Miss E. Ziegler and Mrs. C. F. Bruer, Ottawa. Twelve grandchildren and four great-grandchildren also survive.
      The funeral was held from his late residence Tuesday afternoon to St. Paul's Lutheran Church. Mr. Going conducted the service. Interment took place in the Elmira cemetery, pallbearers being Messrs. Oscar Ruppel, Fred Seigner, George Reuter, George Klinck, C. Schierholtz and H. Geisel.
