"MEMBER OF THE OLD ATHLETICS DIES AFTER A SHORT ILLNESS
John P.J. Senderfer died Sunday at his home, 1023 Brown Street, after a brief illness. Mr. Sensenderfer is remembered by the base ball fans, for he was a member of the old Athletics when they won championships just as the present club did last year. He was also one of the players on the team that took an European tour in 1874.
Mr. Sensenderfer was born in this city December 28, 1847. Although he studied law he never practiced it, but engaged in mercantile pursuits. When he gave up playing base ball he was appointed a clerk in the Receiver of Taxes office, and was later Deputy Collector of Delinquent Taxes. He was City Commissioner in '87, and continued in the office for three terms. Of late he represented the Fourteenth ward in the Democratic City Committee, and was for some time secretary of the body. He was secretary of both conventions that nominated Governor Pattison for the terms for which he was elected, and was a delegate to the National Democratic Convention of 1883 that nominated Cleveland, and was also an elector."
