Saeger

Edward

 

10/06/1806

1877

Saeger-In Saegertown, Dec. 21st, 1877, Edward Saeger, aged 71 years. Mr. Saeger was one of the oldest settlers in this section. He settled in Saegertown about sixty years ago, when the only enterprise there was a grist mill, which he and his brothers purchased of Mr. Fox Alden. They established the first mercantile business in the town over fifty years ago, in which the deceased continued until about sixteen years ago, when he retired from business. He has been prominently connected with the growth and prosperity of the town, and his name and many good qualities as a business and Christian man will long be cherished by all who knew him in life. "Full, ripe with years, his sun went down."

On Monday forenoon the mortal remains of Levi Schwartz, of Hancock, Berks county, were consigned to their last resting place at Longswamp church. The deceased was well and favorably known in his county and outside. In consequence the attendance at the funeral was very large, the church being too small to accommodate all. Many relatives and friends of the deceased came from a distance to pay their last respects. The Revs. Hellfrich, father and son, officiated. The deceased was a farmer for many years. By his toil he had amassed a competency and lived in his fine residence near his farm at Hancock in retirement for some time. He was ever hospitable and good-natured and, although old in years, his form is missed by many for his genial manners and good qualities. Six children, all married, remain of eleven born to him and his wife Sarah, nee Weiler. The sickness was typhoid pneumonia, from which the deceased suffered but a short time, being in bed but a few days. The end was not unexpected by him though his somewhat sudden death shocked those about him. He brought his age to 75 years, 2 months and 21 days. Mrs. Aquilla Knauss, mother of the writer, is a sister of Mrs. Schwartz and with a number of other relatives from town attended the funeral.

His early years were spent on the farm, but when he was sixteen years of age, he went up into Schuylkill county, near Tamaqua, to do lumbering for William Mintzer, that was the step in the direction of the business that he was destined to follow chiefly in his life. Returning to Pottstown in a few years, he was first employed in the lumber and coal yard of Fegely & Brother, and later he became a member of the firm, which changed to Fegely & Company, the members of it being Jacob Fegely, Samuel Fronheiser and W. Y. Swinehart. Fifteen years ago the firm dissolved and deceased purchased the lumber yard of the late firm and conducted it successfully for some years. Afterward, however, in doing kindness for others ca me adversity and business reverses.
