Peter K. MUTCHLER, aged 75, well known farmer and for 19 years a rural route carrier out of the local postoffice, died at 2:30 o'clock this morning at the home of his daughter, Mrs. George Thompson, who lives one-half a mile north of this city on the Michigan Road [US-31]. Death was caused by two strokes of paralysis.
Mr. Mutchler returned on May 1 from spending the winter in Florida. The excitement of the trip home it is believed was the cause for the first stroke which he suffered on the night of his return from Florida. This stroke affected the right side. The second stroke Mr. Mutchler suffered occurred four days later. This left him in a helpless condition.
The deceased was born in Delaware county, Ohio, on July 22, 1853 the son of Jacob and Elizabeth MUTCHLER. When he was 25 years of age he came to this county from Ohio buying a small farm west of this city on the Winamac road where he resided for many years. On November 25, 1875 he married Christena SWINEHART, who died fifteen years ago.
Surviving are four daughters, Mrs. Ralph BRILES and Mrs. James B. MOULENBELT, Grand Rapids, Mich., Mrs. Fred REECE and Mrs. George THOMPSON of this city, three sons, A. D. MUTCHLER, Miami, Fla., Ira [MUTCHLER] and Clyde [MUTCHLER] of Grand Rapids, Mich., eighteen grandchildren and one great-grandchild, two brothers, Samuel [MUTCHLER] and Charles [MUTCHLER] of this city and two sisters, Mrs. Mollie BLANCHARD of Chicago and Clara [MUTCHLER] of Portland, Oregon.
Mr. Mutchler was a member of the Rochester Odd Fellows Lodge. The funeral will be held Thursday afternoon at 2 o'clock from the home of Mr. and Mrs. George Thompson with the Rev. J. B. GLEASON in charge. Burial will be made in the Odd Fellows cemetery.
