The Times, Batavia, New York exact date cut off 1924:

Peter Becker The funeral of Peter Becker, a former well known Batavian, who died on Saturday at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Emma Wheeler of Avon, was held in Batavia on Wednesday morning from St. Mary's church at 9:30 o'clock and burial took place in St. Joseph's cemetery. Mr. Becker, who was 87 years old, resided until a short time ago in Batavia since 1876. He was a molder by trade and came here with the Wiard Plow Company. When Mr. Becker came to America in 1866 he was on a voyage fourteen weeks. Cholera broke out on board ship and as he did not have the disease he was obliged to remain on deck constantly in order not to be exposed by those in the cabin. He joined the Batavia fire department in 1882, and at the time of his death was an exempt fireman. Mr. Becker is the father of thirteen children, nine of whom are living. 
 
Note: Husband of M. Elizabeth Becker.
