After being blind and unconscious for two weeks, since his third stroke of paralysis, Jacob STAHL, the well known old carpenter, suddenly regained consciousness this forenoon, told his family he was now ready to die and before the neighbors could be summoned he passed away, while complaining of a pain in his heart.
Jacob Stahl came to Rochester in 1857 and was nearly 67 years old. He married the surviving wife and mother, Rebecca COLWALD in 1858 and to them four living children were born: Alice [STAHL], of this city; Alvah C. [STAHL], of Indianapolis; Wm. L. [STAHL], of Chicago; and Mrs. Luella [STAHL] MOORE of Logansport. Another near relative, a brother, Wm. STAHL, of Hartford City, also survives.
Deceased was an old soldier, member of the 87 Ind Vol, a carpenter by trade, and a Baptist in religion. He was a quiet, unassuming man and highly esteemed by all of his neighbors. His affliction had been of sixteen years duration, he having had his spine permanently injured by getting caught beneath a falling shed roof and which finally precipitated paralysis - first attack two years ago and second and third on the 7th and 12th of the present month.
Funeral at the residence Friday afternoon, Rev. CONLEY officiating.
