Death of a Pioneer
-------------------------
Henry Kendig, Sr. of Fairview,
Aged 81 Years, Expires Suddenly
-------------------------
Mr. Henry Kendig, Sr, one of the
Earliest settlers in Erie County, died on
Friday evening at his home in Fairview
Township. He had been feeling well and
Strong during the day and had eaten
Heartily but started to retire shortly af-
ter supper and while disrobing sud-
denly fell over on the bed and expired
without a moment's warning.

Mr. Kendig was born in Lancaster
County, PA. on Feb 14th, 1800 and re-
Moved to Erie county when about 30
Years of age, settling on a farm about
3 miles south of the present city limits
in a region which at the time was on
the very outskirts of civilization. He
has ever since resided here and raised
a large family to honor his name.

A life long Republican, he was one who
considered it not only the privilege but
the duty of every American citizen to
vote, and he never missed an oppor-
tunity of casting his ballot on election
days.

His surviving family consists of
his widow Mrs. Sarah Kendig, Fair-
view; Samuel, a Fairview farmer; Eli,
Erie; Mrs. I. Baird, Fairview township;
Mrs. M. Fry, Sterretania; Wm. Henry,
Jr., a miller of Capron, Ill; D.C., the
Well known Erie mail carrier; Mrs. John
Gettner, Michigan; John E, a grocer at
North East; and Miss Barbara of Fair-
View.
