DREYER 04 Apr 1895
Mrs Margaret Dreyer, wife of Frederick Dreyer, died this morning at the residence of her son-in-law, Mr Nathan Zimmerly, 280 N Centre Street. She had not felt well for a few days and complained yesterday of a headache. She was 72 years old and the mother of 12 children, the following of whom survive: Messers, George Dreyer; and Henry and Charles Dreyer, well known bakers of this city; and John and William Dreyer of this city; Mrs Nathan Zimmerly and Miss Maggie Dreyer of this city; and Mrs Lizzie Bohn of Pittsburgh. The funeral is Sunday from the German Lutheran Church with interment in the cemetery connected with the church.
Funeral of Mrs. Dreyer
The funeral of Mrs. Margaret Dreyer, whose sudden death was noted in yesterday evening's Times, will take place Sunday afternoon from the German Lutheran church at 2:30 o'clock and the interment will be made in the cemetery connected with the church.
The Times was in error when it stated that Mrs. Dreyer died at the residence of Mrs. Zimmerla, as she died at her own residence on North Centre street. The deceased was born in Bavaria and had been a resident of this city for 55 years. In giving the names of the children living, the name of Mr. George Dreyer, the oldest son of the deceased, was unintentionally omitted.
