  • Notes 
    • Another old Woolwich settler passed away on Thursday of last week in the person of Mr. Gottfried Lehnen, who died in Berlin, in his 76th year, at the home of his son-in-law after a lingering illness. His remains were laid to rest on Saturday afternoon. Revds. Tuerk and Tafel[?] of the New Jerusalem Church officiated at the funeral and remembered the departed in words of love.

      Deceased was born in the Canton of Berne, Switzerland, and came to Canada with his parents in the 22nd year of his life. He settled on a farm near Hawksville[sic], which he worked until his declining health forbade. He leaves 8 sons and 4 daughter[sic] as well as a large number of friends to mourn his departure. Messrs. David and Daniel Lehnen whose home is in Wellesville, Mo. Reached their father's bedside before he died and so were able to minister to him in his last moments.
