      Death of Mr. Isaac Betzner

      There passed away at his home here on Wednesday evening, April 7th, Mr. Isaac Betzner, a well-known and esteemed resident of this town, at the age of 77 years. He had been in failing health for some time. The late Mr. Betzner was born at Breslau and was a direct descendant of one of the first settlers of Waterloo County, who came over here from Pennsylvania around the year 1800. He followed the calling of miller, in which he showed exceptional ability, and was employed in the local flour mills for many years, as well as in Baden, Preston and other places. Several years ago he was forced to relinquish his work owing to failing eyesight. He was married to Miss Catharine Ernst, of this town. He leaves his sorrowing widow and three daughters to mourn his demise, namely, Mrs. Norman Kropf, Mrs. Otto A. Ritz, and Miss Sophia, all of New Hamburg. Two sons and one daughter predeceased him. The funeral will be held on Saturday afternoon from his late home to Riverside Cemetery.
