1890

Wambold.-On the 22d of March, in Waterloo Co., Ont., Herbert Newton H., son of Isaac A. and Emma M. Wambold, aged 11 months and 26 days.

Funeral services by Moses Bowman in German from Psa. 16:6, "The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places: yea, I have a goodly heritage." and by Daniel Wismer in English, from the words, "Be ye also ready." Dear little Herbie had always been a bright and hearty boy, but was snatched away from our arms in a few short hours. In the evening, when his mamma had made him ready to sleep, he stretched his little arms to papa to be taken snugly to bed; but before midnight he lay in convulsions, which were followed by others and in about nine hours death released him.

Joseph Warmkessel, a well known native of Longswamp township, Berks county, resided with his son at Pottstown. He retired, apparently well, last Thursday night. In the morning he was found cold in death, having evidently succumbed to heart failure, as his position and the bed clothing showed that no struggle had been made. Deceased was born near Mertztown and was a highly respected man. His wife died six years ago, since which time he resided with his children. He brought his age to 83 years, 3 months and 21 days. Three children survive, being James, of Pottstown; Elvina, Mrs. Jonathan Schwartz, of Hancock, and Joanna, Mrs. Nathan D. Fritch, of Macungie.

The funeral took place on Tuesday from the residence of Mrs. Schwartz, at Hancock. Burial was made at Mertztown.

Death of Mother Reiss, Mrs. Maria Reiss, the aged lady, who during the past year or two made frequent visits to Bethlehem, and who was well known in this neighborhood, died at the residence of her son-in-law, Mr. Solomon Bodder, in Lower Saucon, at 6 o'clock this morning. There is some dispute as to the exact age of deceased, but it is generally supposed that she was born in the year 1777, which would make her age about 104 years. Until recently the old lady was hale and hearty. Within the past year she made several trips to different parts of the county, stopping a day or two at each place, and , although subject to continual handshaking, she never expressed herself as being fatigued. On the occasion of her last visit to Bethlehem, during the summer of 1880, she enjoyed herself hugely, and would have prolonged her stay among us, had it not been for the many noises and excitements which beset town life. She was a remarkable woman, and news of her death will be received with sorrow by her numerous acquaintances in this and adjoining counties.

DEATH OF EX-SHERIFF WEILER. The death of this well known man occurred on Monday evening at his residence, corner of Seventh street and Centre Square, and, although not altogether unexpected, it, when announced, caused a quivering to run through the heart of the community in which he had so long resided that strongly indicated how deeply and closely he had been connected therewith. He brought his age to near 71 years. He was first taken ill some four weeks ago with pneumonia, and a kidney affection latterly combining with said ailment he commenced to sink rapidly until relieved by death as above stated. He was a son of John Weiler, and was born in Longswamp, Berks county. He was early thrown upon his own exertions for a livelihood, and, being apprenticed to a blacksmith, learned that trade. But he somehow had no liking for it, and so abandoned it and took up the tobacco business. Getting married to a daughter of the long deceased Solomon Fogel, of Breinigsville, at the age of 23, he soon after removed to Fogelsville and there engaged in the hotel business. Later he moved to Siegersville, again taking a hotel, and while a resident of that place he in 1853 was nominated and elected to the office of Sheriff by the Democratic party, of which he was ever a most faithful adherent. This office brought him to Allentown with his family, and he ever after resided here. After the expiration of his term of office, he associated with Mr. John P. Dillinger in the liquor business. After a continuance of the firm for several years, the deceased secured Mr. D's interest in the store by purchase, and continued in the business up to the time of his death, and it may be said that it made him a very well off man. He was twice married. His second wife, who survives him, having been a born Butz and the widow of Nathan Ziegler. With his first wife he had six children, four of whom are living. With his now widow there had been no issue. He ever was a well disposed citizen, simple in his tastes and habits and unobtrusive in his demeanor.[

4/25/1937

An explosion believed to have been caused by an oil stove, and the resultant fire, fatally burned William A. Whitesell, 58, 516 Second Avenue, this city, and completely destroyed his frame bungalow at Promised land, Pike County, on Sunday morning between 2:30 and 3:00 o'clock. Whitesell was painting in the kitchen, and it was the theory of state police who investigated the fire, that the paint fumes became ignited. Whitesell and Daniel Gill, 609 Second Avenue, Bethlehem, went to the bungalow over the weekend to make repairs and improvements for the coming Summer season. At the time of the explosion, Gill was in another bungalow visiting some other people in the colony. He told state police he left Whitesell in the kitchen painting. When the fire was discovered, Charles Wilson, of Wilson Inn, a mile away, rushed to the scene. He sent a call to the CCC camp one and one-half miles away but when the men arrived the flames had advanced so far they were unable to do anything. State police upon investigating, the man had met an accidental death. Whitesell and his family visited the bungalow only last weekend to clean it up and prepare for necessary renovations. Coroner C. F. Black, Pike County, issued a certificate of accidental death and later the remains were taken in charge by undertaker Harry L. Dillinger. The body was burned almost beyond recognition. Whitesell, who had been a painter for the past 35 years was born near Bath on April 27, 1880, and was the son of the late Alfred and Elizabeth Rismiller Whitesell. He was a member of Christ Evangelical and Reformed Church. Besides his wife, Katie E. (nee Kinney), there survive two sons, William R. and Clifford, at home; four daughters, Ruth and Eleanor, at home; Miss Jessie Whitesell, Nazareth, and Mrs. Leroy Sherer, Second Avenue; a brother, Harry Whitesell, Allentown; two sisters, Mrs. Charles Kreidler, Allentown, and Mrs. Sylvester Siegfried, Bath, and two grandchildren.

Private funeral services will be held Wednesday afternoon at 2 o'clock from the Dillinger Funeral Home, West Broad Street, followed by interment in the Greenwood Cemetery, Allentown.

"Injuries Prove Fatal to Two Victims of High Street Crash" -- John H Newman, 20, of 616 Vine Street, Stowe, and William H. Wright, 21, Pine Forge, who suffered fractured skulls in a three-car accident on West High street Thursday night, died within 35 minutes of each other in Pottstown hospital Saturday morning. Newman died at 10:15 a.m. and Wright, who was his nephew, died at 10:50 a.m. The two youths had grown up together and were close friends. Both were pupils at West Pottsgrove Consolidated School and members of St Peter's Lutheran church, Stowe. They were both in the U.S. Navy. Newman, who died on his 20th birthday, served on an aircraft carrier in the European theater, while Wright spent almost two years in service in this country. Joint funeral services will be held in St Peter's Lutheran church, Stowe, on Thursday at 2 p.m., and the two friends will be buried in one grave in Highland Memorial Park. Wright's father, William H. Wright, Sr., was in Pottstown hospital when his son was brought there. Since he was being treated for a heart condition, hospital authorities said, the news was withheld from him for a time. The Rev. Kenneth Anderson, of St. Peter's, Stowe, who was with the two young men from early Saturday morning, first told Wright of his son's accident, later informed him of his death. Hospital officials expressed surprise at the long fight to live put up by both youths, neither had actually regained consciousness. At times, breathing had actually stopped, and after artificial respiration was applied, they continued to live for a few hours more. Newman is survived by his parents, Mr. and Mrs. John Newman; six sisters: Tillie, at home; Mrs. Laura Mest, Pottstown R.D. #3; Mrs. Millie Wright, Pine Forge; Mrs. Anne Wien, Stowe; Mrs. Bertha Snyder, at home, and Mrs. Emma Scheidt, South Pottstown; and a brother, Augustus, of Stowe. Wright's survivors include his parents, Mr. and Mrs. William H Wright, and one sister, Mrs. Grace Trace, of Stowe.
