      An old inhabitant died on Sunday in Waterloo. Born in 1823 in this County, married in 1847 to Barbara Lichty, he devoted himself to agriculture until he moved to Waterloo in 1887. His only child, a daughter, died in the same year after a 19-year marriage to J. Kunkel. His widow, five grand-children and 6 great-grandchildren mourn his loss. Burial took place yesterday, Wednesday, at the Mennonite cemetery in Berlin.
