  • Notes 
    • MRS. JOHN RUPPEL

      On Saturday morning there passed away, Mrs. Mary Ruppel, relict of the late Postmaster Ruppel.

      Deceased was born in Hessen, Germany, and came to this country in her girlhood. For over sixty years she had made Elmira her home and in those long years she made a wide acquaintanceship and many friends. She was a faithful member of St. Paul's Lutheran Church and of its Ladies Aid.

      For several years she had been in poor health and a stroke of paralysis brought about her end in a few days. Her husband died about four years ago, and of a dozen children four also predeceased her. The surviving ones are John, George, Oscar, and Mrs. J. S. Weichel in Elmira; Mrs. (Rev.) Borth, of New York; Henry, of Tavistock; Charles, of Buffalo; and Otto of Hamilton. Thirty-seven grandchildren and 20 great-grandchildren also survive her.

      The funeral took place on Tuesday afternoon and was attended by a large circle of relatives and friends.

      Golden Wedding

      One of those rather rare family gatherings commonly called golden weddings was held at the home of postmaster Rupple yesterday it being the 50th anniversary of their marriage. Mr. Ruppel was married on the 27th of April, 1956 [sic], to Mary Huehn, daughter of Geo. Huehn, of the neighborhood of Heidelberg. Rev. Wundelich, of Waterloo performed the ceremony, Mr. Ruppel came to Elmira in 1853, and on the 29 April 1856, the birthday of Mrs. Ruppel, he brought the latter to Elmira, where they have resided ever since and where they experienced good days and bad days, sunshine and shadow, in short the many changes that fifty years of life in this work are likely to bring. Through all changes, however, they could feel the wise guidance and merciful providence of God, in whom they put their trust. To Mr. and Mrs. Ruppel was born a family of 11 children, two of whom died young and a third, Mrs. Eix, a few months ago. The children living in the village, also Mr. and Mrs. Henry Ruppel, of Tavistock, and their son-in-law, Rev. S. B. Eix, of Fisherville, met at the old home and had dinner with the aged couple.

      Mr. Ruppel is in his 79th year and Mrs. Ruppel will be 69 next Sunday. Both are quite smart, the former doing a hard day's work at the post office daily and the latter performing her household duties. The many fiends of Mr. and Mrs. Ruppel will join with us in wishing them many more years together in good health. - Elmira Advertiser
