J. M. KINSEL
Dr. J. M. Kinsel of the "Mayflower Plantation" just east of Bellwood died of apoplexy suddenly about 6 o'clock Sunday morning. Dr. Kinsel was widely known as a Civil War veteran and also had achieved local fame because of his unique home, built of cement blocks so shaped as to make the house round. For fifty-six years he had been a dentist and practically all his life had been spent in Bellwood and vicinity. Born at Seven Stars, August 15, 1845, he was a quiet young man, when he entered the United States Army as a member of the 125th Pennsylvania Volunteers and served with that command at the Battle of Antietam, and other important engagements. He was married twenty-eight years ago to Miss Emma Rider, who survives him, with one daughter Miss Nellie. The wife of his youth and a daughter preceded him to the grave, but her five grandchildren and two great-grandchildren survive. Dr. Kinsel was a member of the Lutheran Church and of the Grand Army of the Republic. The best tribute to his character is that in his home and among his most intimate friends he was known as a good Christian, a kind husband and father. His friends are legion, as he is known far and near.
