The Merington Times in reporting
the death of William Weber, Sr., says
he was one of the county's first set
tlers. He was born in Germany in
1840 and came to America when he
was sixteen years of age or in 1856
locating In Wisconsin where he re-
mained about two years. Me then
came to Milk creek in Waubunsee
county and later to Shady Brook. He
died on the farm where he took up
l is residence over fifty years ago.
Last November he and his wife, who
has since died, celebrated their gol
den wedding anniversary, their chil
dren and a number of other relatives
being in attendance.
In the early day Mr. Weber was a
freighter. ,With an ox-team he haul
ed freight from frontier posts to the
H'ttlements-
He is survived by seven children as
follows: Mrs. Minnie Ludeman of
ovington, Oklahoma: Mrs. Amelia
Czarnowsky of Llncolnville, Mrs.
Bertha Luekcr of Hope, Robert Web
er of Merington, Martin Weber ol
Merington, Louis Weber of Nashville,
Kansas, and Wm. Weber of Wood
bine.
Mr. Weber was an industrious and
thirfty fanner, an honest, straight
forward man, who made many friends

cf last week he was raking wheat
stubble and attempted to drive the
ruke from one field to another thru
an opening In a stone fence. One
wheel ran against a rock and the
tongue broke, the horses running off
and dragging Mr. Weber quite a dls
tance. Some men who were nearby
saw the horses dashing across the
field and went over to find Mr. Weber
badly injured. He was conscious for
a time and told how the accident oc
curred. His death followed Thursday
morning.
Although 77 years of age, the de
ceased had enjoyed the best of health
and Insisted on doing a man's work
every day against the protests of his
children who desired that he take
things easy In his old age.
