Levi STAHL, 75, a pioneer resident of this county died Wednesday morning at 8:30 at his home on west 4th street where he had lived in Rochester for the past 21 years. Death was caused by a cancer of the stomach. For the past two months he had been confined to his bed, the end finally coming as relief from much suffering. All of the children were at home when their father died. Funeral probably Friday.
Levi Stahl was born in Pennsylvania and came to this county when very young with his parents. Fifty-one years ago last New Years he was married to Miss Mary DRUDGE, who survives him. They were the parents of nine children, six of whom are living: Mrs. Flora RICHARDSON, Mrs. Delitha NELSON, Mrs. Cora BARKMAN and Charles STAHL of this city, Mrs Minnie WILSON of Chicago and Clinton STAHL of San Francisco, Calif. The last named arrived here Monday.
After living on a farm east of Rochester for many years, Mr. and Mrs. Stahl moved to Rochester about 30 years ago where he engaged in the pump and wind mill business for 12 years. Mr. Stahl was a life long democrat, took a deep interest in the affairs of the community and was one of the county's early self-made men. Mr. Stahl was a member of the K. of P. and Maccabee lodges.
Funeral Friday morning at 10 o'clock at the house.
