  • Notes 
    • Last Monday morning the death knell of St. James Lutheran Church tolled the departure of Peter Beisel, an aged resident of Elmira, and one of the first settlers of the neighborhood, surrounding our village. Deceased did a large share of the clearing up and transforming of forest land into arable fields and amassed a large share of this world's wealth. Some 25 years ago he retired from the farm and removed to Elmira. Here his first wife died. Subsequently he was again married, his second wife died several years ago. After the latter's death he lived with his grandson, Mr. Irvine Beisel, where he received the best of attention and where he died last Monday at the age of 82 years and two months. He leaves three sons, William, of Wyandotte, Louis and Philip near Elmira, and one daughter, Mrs. John S. Miller, of Elmira. The funeral took place Wednesday afternoon.
