Elias LEININGER, 81, passed away at his home three and a half miles north of Akron, 11:15 o'clock Friday morning. Death resulted from a heart attack, however the deceased had been in ill health since last winter when he was ill from influeza. Mr. Leininger was well known throughout Henry township having been a resident of that community for over 70 years.

Elias, son of Isaac and Mary PETRIE LEININGER, was born in Schuylkill, Penn., on September 12th, 1849 and removed from that locality to Henry township when but a small lad. He had resided on the farm on which he died for over a half century.

On November 9th, 1875 he was united in marriage to Amanda H. KISTLER at Beaver Dam. His wife preceded him in death three years ago.

He donated the land where the First Saints church was built nearly 50 years ago.
