  • Notes 
    • Death called Conrad Hahn in his 89th year at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Chas. Kuntze, R .R. 2, Tavistock, on Wednesday morning. Born in Hesson Darmstadt, Germany, in the city of Obernglane in 1849, the late Mr. Hahn emigrated at the age of four years to Waterloo County with his parents, the late John and Elizabeth Hahn. In 1878 he married Lizetta Umbach, who predeceased him 15 years ago. They had six children, two, Edward and Addison, having died. Surviving are Mrs. J.W. Borkwood, Kitchener, Mrs. O. Hambly, Elmira, Mrs. Chas. Kuntze, R.R. 2, Tavistock, and one son, Solomon, in Brooklyn, N. Y. Six grandchildren, Carl, Earl and Ross Hahn of Kitchener, Don. Borkwood of Toronto, Ralph Hambly of Elmira, and Eugene Kuntze, and one great grandchild, Mary Jane Hahn, Kitchener, also survive. The late Mr. Hahn spent most of his life in and around Elmira. He farmed for a good many years on the farm now owned by J. S. Geisel. He owned a butcher business when residing in Elmira and in later years had the agency for an implement company. The past fourteen years were spent with his daughter, Mrs. Chas. Kuntze, where he succumbed. Mr. Hahn was a staunch Liberal. He was a member of the Baptist church, but in the absence of his faith in Elmira he was an adherent of the Evangelical Church. Widely known as a man of good spirits, despite many adversities, Mr. Hahn will be greatly missed by his family and in the communities where he resided. The funeral will be held on Friday from the home of his son-in-law, Chas. N. Kuntze, R .R. 2, Tavistock, at 1 o'clock and thence to the Elmira Evangelical Church for services at 2: 30 p.m. Interment will be made in the Elmira cemetery. Rev. J. B. Dengis of New Hamburg and Rev. C .H. Cornwell of Elmira will officiate.
