David LEININGER, 77, for 52 years a resident northeast of Athens, one-half mile west of the Olive Bethel church, died at 9:30 a.m. Wednesday of paralysis and complications ensuing from a light stroke March 20. Arrangements for the funeral of the farmer and preacher, who often delivered sermons from the pulpit of the Church of God, of which he was for 45 years a member, have not been made. Born in Schuylkill county, Pennsylvania, in September, 1847, the son of Isaac and Mary LEININGER, the deceased later came to the Midwest and 58 years ago last April, was married at Beaver Dam Kosciusko county, to Miss Hester THOMPSON. To the union were born 10 children, five of whom are living, the others having died in infancy. Those living are Oliver [LEININGER], Willis [LEININGER], Clarence [LEININGER], Sidney [LEININGER] and Mrs. Lum (Grace) SMITH, all of the Athens vicinity except Clarence, who resides near Mentone. David [LEININGER] of Akron and Elias [LEININGER] of Beaver Dam are surviving brothers, while Mrs. Henry HALDEMAN is a sister. Ten grandchildren, a halfsister and two half-brothers survive.
