  • Notes 
    • Death of Mrs. Leis

      The death of Mrs. Leis, widow of the late Joseph Leis, occurred at the home of her son-in-law, Mr. Chr. J. Lichty, just east of Crosshill, on Thursday last, aged 76 years and four months. Deceased was one of the very earliest of residents of this section, coming here with her father, Mr. Kennel, who settled on the eastern border of Wellesley when she was a mere child. Since that time she has always lived here, and throughout her long and useful life she retained the highest respect of all. Besides a large number of descendants and relatives, Mrs. Leis leaves a family of thirteen children: Noah, John, Magdelene (Mrs. P. Jantzi), Chris., Jos., David, Daniel, Catherine (Mrs. C. J. Lichty), Menno, Barbara (Mrs. C. Gingerich), Jacob, Phronica (Mrs. N. Roth), and Solomon. These children are all living and settled in this neighborhood, and all of them attended the large funeral which occurred on Sunday last at the Mennonite Church, 3rd line.
