  • Notes 
    • "Peterson: On the 17th inst., at Wellesley, in the neighbouring County of Waterloo, Charles L. Peterson, in the 81st year of his age. His remains were interred at Hawkesville, on the 21st, by the Rev. Mr. Smith of Berlin, after which funeral discourses in German and English, by attending ministers, were delivered in the Church of the United Brethren. Notwithstanding the extreme severity of the weather, the funeral was most numerously attended, the procession of vehicles containing sympathizing friends and neighbours being nearly a mile in length. The aged and devoted partner of his long life had predeceased him only a few years, and their remains were laid side by side in one grave, united both in the life and death. Mr. Peterson had reached a truly patriarchal age, and up to a few moments of his death he was perfectly concious, possessing all his faculties. He was the honored and beloved head of a numerous race of descendants, prosperous, vigorous and in the prime of life. Three married sons and five wedded daugh-ters, twenty-nine grandsons and grand-daughters, and seven great-great grandchildren, besides numerous collateral connections, all assembled to pay their last tribute of affectionate respect for the beloved head of their House. A yeoman all his days, the many hundred broad acres of his descendants testify to the sure reward of honest toil and industry. His life was that of an honest man and full of the Christian's hope. Death had no terrors for one who was for many years fully prepared for the last great change. A. J. Peterson, Esq., of Berlin, H.W. Peterson and Joseph Peterson, Esqrs. of Wellesley, are his three surviving sons. Our Townsman, H. W. Peterson, Esq. County Crown Attorney, a Nephew of the deceased."
