    • DEATH OF A FORMER WOOLWICH RESIDENT
      An aged resident of Waterloo passed away Tuesday morning last week in the person of Yost Stroh. Deceased was born in Germany, coming to Berlin only 13 years old. After living in Berlin 26 years he moved to Woolwich Tp., living next to Balsam Grove school. Here he lived 45 years, having a few acres of land, and working among the farmers when not occupied at home. He was also caretaker of the school there for many years, in fact as long as the writer's memory carries him back. Two years ago he moved to Waterloo and has since resided with his daughter, Mrs. Abram Metzger. His wife predeceased him 25 years. There survive him three sons, Conrad, Grand Rapids, Mich.; Henry and John, Wallenstein, and five daughters, Mrs. Vincent, Barryton, Mich.; Mrs. John and Mrs. Michael Ott, Berlin; Mrs. Geo. Dahmer and Mrs. Metzger, Waterloo. The funeral was held on Saturday afternoon and several of his Woolwich friends went to do him a last honor.
