Wertz, W. L. - 1943

13th Anniversary
Last Sunday, March 28th, marked the thirteenth anniversary for Rev. Russell P. Knoebel, as pastor of the Grace Lutheran and Salem Lutheran churches.  Rev. Knoebel and his family came here during the last week in March of 1930.  Both congregations have prospered during the past years.  Salem church has been completely renovated, the latest improvement was the installment of new church pews and carpet at a cost of nearly $1000.

Grace congregation here in Bellwood since 1935, when the new parish house was built has been making improvements each year until the fall of 1941 when they rededicated the church.  This work cost over $8000 and within fifteen months is all paid except $1000.  The congregation hopes to reduce this note on Easter Sunday and if possible pay it off entirely.  In all in both churches over $20,000 has been expanded for repair work alone during the present pastorate.

Last Sunday Mr. W. L. Wertz, member of the church council presented the pastor with a check from the congregation, and the Salem church presend <sic> a basket of beautiful roses.  These gifts were greatly appreciated by the pastor and his family.  We all are thankful for the happy relationship that has existed between pastor and his people during the past years and pray God’s guidance as we continue to labor together in the future.

Mrs. Hill has been a constant subscriber of the Bulletin and like many others, we regret to disappoint them.  Printing is largely technical and as we cannot get help that will remain, our only alternative is to wait until the world again regains its normal equilibrium.

Imhoff, Susan - 1881

Fire At Lexington
Mathias Meiley’s Dwelling Totally Destroyed – Two Families Rendered Homeless

About 8 o’clock on Tuesday morning the two-story dwelling house of Mathias Meiley, in the village of Lexington, was totally destroyed by fire.  Mrs. Meiley and her children left home last Saturday for the purpose of visiting relatives at the Furnace Hills.

Mr. Meiley remained at home, and daily since his wife’s departure, made a wood fire in a stove for the purpose of cooking.  On Tuesday morning as usual he prepared breakfast, after which he left home on a gunning expedition.  To the dwelling is attached a log building, in which lives Susan Imhoff with a number of children.  Not more than an hour after Mr. Meiley had left home, fire was seen issuing from the upper corner of the main building.  The alarm was quickly spread, but too late.  Everything was as dry as tinder, and in almost a breath the building, together with the log attachment, was laid in ashes.  Most of the furniture, however, was saved.

The burning building will entail a total loss of about $1500.  It was insured in the Manheim Mutual Company for $1400, including furniture, but the owner failed to pay his last assessment of 72 cents, consequently the policy became null and void.

Fire At Lexington
Mathias Meiley’s Dwelling Totally Destroyed – Two Families Rendered Homeless

About 8 o’clock on Tuesday morning the two-story dwelling house of Mathias Meiley, in the village of Lexington, was totally destroyed by fire.  Mrs. Meiley and her children left home last Saturday for the purpose of visiting relatives at the Furnace Hills.

Mr. Meiley remained at home, and daily since his wife’s departure, made a wood fire in a stove for the purpose of cooking.  On Tuesday morning as usual he prepared breakfast, after which he left home on a gunning expedition.  To the dwelling is attached a log building, in which lives Susan Imhoff with a number of children.  Not more than an hour after Mr. Meiley had left home, fire was seen issuing from the upper corner of the main building.  The alarm was quickly spread, but too late.  Everything was as dry as tinder, and in almost a breath the building, together with the log attachment, was laid in ashes.  Most of the furniture, however, was saved.

Mistakes are made, and one of the greatest blunders of which any account has reached us is the one that Mathias Miley made in not observing the rules and regulations of the insurance company in which his property was insured, as we are informed, for $1400.  His motives were pure enough in securing the policy, for in so doing he secured himself against any loss that might happen to his property by fire; but he should not have become careless in paying the assessments, as these came due from time to time.  That saying is” “It is a poor rule that doth not work both ways”, and just here we have the double working of this rule.

In the first place, the company promised to pay the amount insured in case destruction by fire came upon it; but in place he also was placed under obligations, which had to be filled, and these obligations were to keep the policy alive by duly paying each and every assessment that was made by the company.  Failing to comply with these conditions, the policy ceases to be anything more than a blank piece of paper.  Behold the error of a man’s ways.

Seventy-two cents, the amount of the last assessment, would have kept him in proper relations with the company and would have obliged the company to pay him within a set time the amount fixed by the policy; but failing to do so he is left without redress and consequently without help on the part of the company.

Nagle, Charles (Rev.) - 1881

The Wedding. --
A very select audience of invited guests, numbering about one hundred and fifty, assembled in the Moravian Church, Tuesday evening last, to witness the wedding festivities of Mr. S. F. Van Vleck and Miss E. T. Miller – Wm. Milchsack and C. W. Grosh acting as ushers.

At precisely 6:30 o’clock Mr. J. Fred. Wolle, of Bethlehem, presiding at the organ, began playing a beautiful prelude step, when the Rev. Bishop H. J. Van Vleck, father of the groom, accompanied by Rev. Chas. Nagle, pastor of the church, made their appearance from the chapel.  Presently the two-to-be-made happy persons walked up the aisle of the church, in a dignified and graceful manner, preceded by the ushers, and taking their places in front of the Reverend gentlemen, Rev. Nagle read the service, whereupon Bishop Van Vleck propounded the usual questions, and in a very impressive manner closed the ceremony, after which the Mendelsson “Wedding March” was played.

No reception was held.  The happy pair, accompanied by the Bishop, took the 7:25 train for Lancaster; from that point they started for Mr. Van Vleck’s former home, in Ohio.

Music Hath Charms.--
The return of Prof. S. F. Van Vleck and bride from their wedding tour was an event too important to be overlooked by their music friends.  When we state that the Maennerchor undertook the necessary details of an appropriate welcome, we have said sufficient to assure everybody a “feast of reason, a flow of soul”, and a musical treat must be the result.  It was at any rate.

Wednesday evening was the appointed time.  Such a gathering of the clans!  The Maennerchor, the church choir, and others whose voices are attuned to souls of melody.  Vocal and instrumental music alternated.  Ladies and gentlemen concerted a splendid programme.  Formality was cast to the winds.  Dullness and insipidity were not down on the bills.  Every one present entered into the spirit of the occasion with a zest that presaged a gay time.

“Music hath charms to soothe the savage breast”, but an empty stomach hath yearnings that sound, however harmonious, cannot satisfy.  Anticipating this state af [sic] affairs, William Bollinger, assisted by Elmer Riche, spread the board with a supply of dainty edibles that would have made an epicure weep for joy.

“Taking it by the large”, the evening could not well have been improved upon.

Glass, Anna Elizabeth [Weaver] - 1881

Francis V.

He was a very industrious, hardworking and thrifty person, and his labors were blessed to the extent that he could enjoy the income of a nice little farm besides some other resources.  He was a prominent member of the Bethany Reformed Church, and for many years an office bearer in said congregation.  At first, and for a number of years, he served as deacon, and afterwards as an elder, and at the time of his death he served the congregation in the capacity of an elder.  He suffered periodically from dyspepsia, which weakened his system very much and may have superinduced <sic> the last and fatal attack.  His sufferings were very extreme, but death relived him from all that belongs to the “here below”.

He attained the age of 67 years and 27 days.  His mortal remains were quietly laid to rest in God’s acre <sic> at Bethany September 17, amidst a concourse of weeping relatives and sorrowing friends.

In the morning of September 12, Mr. S. went after his work, which on this day took him away from home a short distance, when he was sent for in the forenoon, little thinking that such a change would take place in his family circle on that day.

But soon the fatal effects of the disease began to show themselves, when in the evening of that same day she breathed her last.  She rests in peace with six others of her brothers and sisters in God’s care at White Oak.  Her funeral took place on September 15.

Henry Pickel, a resident of Lancaster city, met a horrible death on the Pennsylvania Railroad at Lancaster on Friday last.  He was caught by a shifting engine which dragged him twenty feet, then hurled him head-foremost under the wheels, cutting him completely in two.  Mr. Pickel was a cripple and was compelled to walk with crutches.  He was wounded at the battle of Bentonville, N. C., in 1865.  He was married to a sister of Daniel Chohick, of this place, and paid him a visit just three weeks before the accident.  He was 40 years.  He was the father of three children.  He was interred in Lancaster cemetery on Sunday.
