Obituaries from the Lebanon Daily News: Volume XIV
1900-Present


This file, Volume XIV, contains 1012 obituaries. Other volumes are available on the LDN Obits main page.

Please be patient while file loads.

This is a raw, unsorted, and unalphabetized file of obituary listings mainly from the Lebanon Daily News. Due to time constraints, I was unable to alphabetize this file.

To navigate throughout this page, use the Find option found in the edit menu. This will allow you to find all listed instances of the name/surname you are searching for.

As I add more obits to this file, I will always drop them in at the top. This will aid returnees to this site from having to again browse the entire file. Note: I have these files listed as obituaries, but interspersed amongst the obits are; some funeral notices and also some funeral services. The notices and services many times contain information that is helpful to many researchers. In research there is no such thing as "too much information".

Many listings are connected to my family files, which are: Kindt, Copenhaver, Gettle, & McKinney.

Lebanon Daily News Obits of: 9 Aug 1917.... Elias Behney, of Fredericksburg, aged 56 years, an iron worker employed by the Lebanon Valley Iron and Steel Company, at East Lebanon, was fatally injured in a railroad accident about 4:30 o'clock on Wednesday afternoon, on the Pennsylvania branch line.

Mr. Behney had his own establishment in a shanty at Fifth Avenue and Weidman streets, where he subsisted himself during the week. Saturday afternoons and Sundays were spent with his family at Fredericksburg. He was scheduled for night turn duty at the Lebanon Valley Iron Company mills this week, and he was on his way to work when the accident happened. For some reason or other, which has not yet been explained, he made something of a detour, and thus had occasion to cross the tracks near the East Works of the Bethlehem Steel Company's American Iron and Steel plant. It was there that he was run down by a train of cars being shifted around by the railroad men. He was hustled to the Good Samaritan hospital as quickly as possible in the ambulance, and there It was found that his legs were so badly crushed that all efforts to save them were regarded as hopeless, and both limbs were therefore amputated. The operation did not save the man however, as it was hoped it would, and he died this morning at three o'clock. He was conscious for a considerable time after the accident and talked freely of it to those about him. He is said to have remarked that It was his own fault, and that he fully exonerated the members of the railroad crew. Mr. Behney leaves his wife, two daughters, Mrs. Frank W.

He had been in failing health for two years, suffering from arterial sclerosis, but his condition was not such as to cause any anxiety until about six months ago when he was afflicted with general debility. He managed to make his annual trip to the Gerberich reunion here, however, last summer, it proved to be his last visit. He was in the 75th year of his age. Prof. Gerberich was a son of the late Daniel U. and Catherine (Boeshore) Gerberich. The homestead farm where he was born July 6, 1866, and subsequently reared is now included in the Pennsylvania Military reservation. As a boy he traveled over the entire Gap area which is now a soldier containment and he knew the region, including the mountain paths, like the hallways in his home. After attending the schools in his native township as a boy, he graduated at the West Chester State Normal School, now known as a state teachers college. He graduated later in 1900 at Lebanon Valley College, Annville. He had in the interim taught school in the rural districts of the country, principaly in East Hanover and Union Townships, and he became widely known in that capacity. Leaving Lebanon Valley College, he became principal of the South Annville township high school in 1900 and served two terms in that position. He was then elected superintendent of the public schools at Johnsonburg. He served six terms there, and in 1908 was elected superintendent of the schools in the city of Greenville. He continued there for twenty-four years, retiring under the school code regulations in 1932. During the period that he taught in Annville he conducted a Normal School for the training of teachers in conjunction with Prof. Wesley M. Heilman, former Supt. Alleman, of Grenburg, D.J. Leopold, now president of the First National Bank of Lebanon, and the late Z.A. Bowman of Annville. The "Normal" as then known, was widely attended and many of the professional men of that period patronized the school. Prof. Gerberich was a life long member of the Lutheran Church and while at Annville was superintendent of the Bible school for many years. More recently he was active in the Lutheran Church of Greenville and served as a trustee of Thiel College located in that city. Notice of the death was received here early this morning by Dr. H.L. Gerberich, a brother, of 514 Cumberland Street, and was transmitted to other local relatives. Dr. Guy A. Gerberich, of North Ninth Street, is a nephew, and Edwin T.

Lebanon Daily News Obits of:25 Apr 1978.... John W, Feather, a retired city police Lieutenant who was well known as a walking encyclopedia because of his vast knowledge of information about the Lebanon area and its residents, died shortly before noon Monday in Good Samaritan Hospital. He was 79 & a resident of 537 Spruce St. He was a brother of County Commissioner Philip H. Feather. He suffered a stroke on March 23 and had been hospitalized since that time. He had suffered a heart attack about two years ago. Shortly after he retired from the police force in March of 1964, he assumed duties as a county court attendant and he held that post until he was stricken ill. He was a policeman for 28 years and he rose through the ranks to become second in command of the local department. Feather was also widely known as a military man. During World War I, he served in France with a machine gun unit. He was wounded in action and received the Purple Heart. He later joined the National Guard and served with Battery H of the 213th Coast Artillery, achieving the rank of Captain. He had 30 years of service with that citizen soldier organization. During his career as a policeman and later as a court attendant, Feather was frequently sought out by newsmen and others needing information that he had acquired over the years. During his early years on the police force, he walked a beat and his contacts with the Lebanon citizenry were many. John was a very dedicated county employee. He came to work early and he stayed late. He took charge in the courtroom and he very adequately looked after the needs of the jurors. He performed his job with great care and we will miss him, Judge G. Thomas Gates said in tribute to Feather this morning. A native of Lancaster County, Feather was reared in W. Lebanon Township. Prior to joining the police force he was employed as a loom fixer at the former New Bedford Mills on East Mifflin Street. An avid baseball fan throughout his life, Feather especially followed the Phillies, and in recent years was also an active participant in the survivors organization of his World War I machine gun unit.

Lebanon Daily News Obits of: 7 July 1906.... Dawson Bordner, a well known school teacher of Fredericksburg, was found dead in the Holland House, on North Eighth Street, about six o'clock this morning. While suicide is hinted at by reason of Bordner's own threats to do himself harm, it is believed that he died as a result of acute alcoholism. An investigation is being made by Coroner Schultz. An inquest may be held next week. Bordner had been in Lebanon since Tuesday, and was drinking heavily. He was seen on July Fourth on S. Eighth St., and seemed very despondent as a result of his inability to curb his appetite for liquor. He talked then of suicide. On Friday evening he entered the Holland House, where he was well known and sat down at one of the tables in the rear of the barroom. He spoke not to anyone, as far as known. After sitting for a time, he left, and returned several hours later, about 11 o'clock, and resumed his seat. Patrons of the place say that as late as three o'clock, he was seen to move in his chair, and little attention was paid to him, as he never made any trouble of any kind, and was therefore permitted to indulge in what seemed to be a peaceful sleep. About six o'clock this morning, Wayne Kimmel, the night bar clerk, crossed the room to where Bordner was sitting, and when endeavoring to waken the man, noticed that Bordner was cold. The man was found to be dead. He sat in a natural position, with his chin resting on his hand, his elbow on the table and his legs crossed. Not from the time he first entered the place in the evening until discovered dead, had the man asked for or partaken of a drink. At the suggestion of Former Councilman, John Holland, proprietor of the place, Kimmel notified Coroner A. W. Shultz at Bunker Hill, and then went post-haste for Deputy Coroner Charles D. Weirich.The latter responded at once, and, owing to the gathering crowd, had the body removed to McGovern's morgue. A search there revealed $1.72 and some trinkets, but nothing of any more value. Coroner Shultz later arrived to investigate the matter and a post-mortem examination may be held later.The suicide theory was credited to some extent this morning by the statement of a man who said he had seen Bordner drinking something out of a bottle.This is thought to be a mistake; however, as Bordner is known to have secured a prescription from a physician, the potion prescribed being intended to relieve him from effects of his debauch. It is expected that it will be found that Bordner was merely taking medicine. Bordner's life during the past several years has been of such a character as to inspire profound pity. He is a member of the well known family at Bordner's store, near East Hanover, now known as Bordnersville. He is a son of the late Daniel T. Bordner. The deceased was married to Annie Oberholtzer, an estimable young lady possessed of some means. Since his marriage, however, Bordner contracted a love for drink, which he said himself he could not suppress. Interment in the Cedar Hill Cemetery.
