KNATZ, Mrs. Agnes McMillan
 
Lonaconing, Md  Feb 18
The funeral of Mrs Henry Knatz took place Sunday afternoon from the home of Mrs Knatz's mother, Mrs Barbara McMillan of Pink Row and the remains were interred in Oak Hill Cemetery. Rev A C Thompson officiated.  Mrs Knatz died at the home of her mother on Monday at 1:15 from asthma.  Mr Knatz had been a successful businessman in Phillipsburg, Montana, but owing to the climate there, his wife had to make frequent trips to Maryland in order to recuperate.  Mrs Knatz's last trip here was made on the 15th and since that time her health constantly declined.  The sad news of his wife's death was conveyed to Mr Knatz by telegram immediately and he wired back that he would start for Lonaconing immediately and requested the funeral should not take place until his arrival here.  Mrs Knatz leaves four children, besides her husband, Harry, 16; Jessie, 11; Elizabeth 12 and Loretta 10.  She is also survived by her aged mother, six brother and three sisters, all of this place.

KNATZ, (child) James

Killed With a Cat Gun
Saturday afternoon at about 3 o'clock James Knatz, a lad of twelve years, living at Lonaconing, was accidentally shot and killed by the premature discharge of a cat gun. The facts are as follows:
Knatz and four of his companions were on the farm of Mr. Gordon near the George's Creek and Cumberland Railroad depot playing with a loaded cat gun and in handing it from one to another it discharged and the ball entered the Knatz boy's chest. The unfortunate lad dropped to the earth, and after a few gasps expired. The boy who was passing the gun is named John Hunter, and he is nearly frantic with grief. All of the other boys are likewise stunned at the fatal termination of their hunting expedition and can scarcely be comforted. As the gun was handed around the hammer was raised and the trigger was accidentally touched thus causing the tragedy. The father and mother of the dead boy left for Phillipsburg, Montana, last Tuesday, and he was placed with his grandfather Adam McMullen, until their return. The funeral took place from the residence of Mr. Adam McMullen this afternoon at 2 o'clock and was largely attended. Rev. L. Carmen Bell officiated. The interment  was at Oak Hill cemetery, Lonaconing.

Steckel, pastor of the Reformed Church of Greensburg, and Rev. C. R. Ferner, pastor of the Scottdale Reformed Church, will officiate. The remains will be taken to Berlin, Somerset county, Thursday morning on B & O train No. 48, arriving in Connellsville at 8.50 A. M. Services will be conducted at Berlin by Rev. King of Somerset, Rev. Cramer of Hyndman, and Rev. Truxall of Meyersdale. Deceased was the son of John and Anna Knepper and was born on a farm at Berlin, September 10, 1816. He was of German descent, his ancestors being of the pioneer settlers of Somerset county, having settled there over a century ago. His early education was received in the public school at Berlin. He received his theological training under Rev. William Conrad, a former pastor of the Berlin Reformed Church. In 1850 he was ordained as a minister, his first charge being at Wellersburg, where he was pastor of the Reformed Church for 55 years. His entire ministerial life was spent there. He spent 18 months of his life in the Western States. At an early age Rev. Knepper married Miss Catherine Hay of Berlin. Two children were born to the union. Miss Sophia Knepper, deceased, and Mrs. Anna Heller, living. After serving 50 years as pastor of the Wellersburg Church, which was composed of four charges, Rev. Knepper was still retained to supply the Wellersburg congregation for five years, making his entire ministry 55 years. Sixteen years ago Rev. Knepper celebrated his golden wedding anniversary. The affair was one of the greatest events of the kind ever held in Somerset county, many persons being present from a distance. Sunday three weeks ago Rev. Knepper celebrated his 89th birthday at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Anna Heller. The celebration was a very quiet one, only the near relatives being present. At his retirement from the ministry, the ministers of the various classes tendered Rev. Knepper a grand public reception, over a thousand persons being present. During his ministry he baptized over 2,000 persons. After resigning from the ministry he was elected pastor emeritus, allowing him the privilege of baptizing and performing marriage ceremonies. Deceased has made his home with his daughter, Mrs. Heller, since last October. His death was not unexpected; for the past year he has been in feeble health, being confined to his room the greater part of that time. Death was caused by the infirmities of old age. Deceased was highly respected and esteemed by all who knew him. He is survived by his widow, Mrs. Katherine Knepper, and one daughter, Mrs. Anna M. Heller, of Connellsville.

KNIERIEM, William

Mr. William Knieriem died yesterday afternoon at 1 o'clock at his home, 189 North Mechanic Street, in the 87th year. He was Cumberland's oldest German resident. His wife died on March 18th. They had lived together 62 years and following her death Mr. Knieriem lost all desire to live and his decline was rapid. He suffered greatly yesterday morning but apparent peaceful repose marked the end. All of his life had been active, until a few years ago. He was one of Cumberland's most esteemed citizens and following his demise the Kneiriem home was thonged with callers who tendered condolences to the family plunged in grief a second time within less than three months. Mr. Knieriem was a native of Hessen, Germany, and came here with his young wife and located at Mt. Savage, where he followed his trade, that of tailoring, but shortly after moved to Cumberland and located on Mill street, then Hay street and finally on Mechanic street, having lived in the house where he died 48 years.
