WILLIAM H. EIDEMILLER IS VICTIM OF PARALYSIS
LIFE-LONG MIAMI COUNTY RESIDENT SUCCUMBS AT RESIDENCE, NORTH OF TROY
William Henry Eidemiller, 74, life-long Miami county farmer, died at his home on the Peterson pike, north of Troy, Friday morning at 5:30 o'clock. Mr. Eidemiller had sustained a stroke of paralysis while working in the barn on his farm and fell, receiving injuries, which with the paralysis caused his death. Born in 1860 to the late John and Seraphine Lavy Eidemiller near Ginghamsburg, the decedent was married in 1886 to Miss Anna Lehman of Nashville who survives him. His parents were pioneer Monroe township farmers and he is the last of a family of five. He had resided all his life in Monroe and Concord townships. His father was the builder of some of the first roads in the county, having constructed five miles of the old Piqua and Troy pike, and six and one-half miles of the Troy- Stillwater road. He had lived for the last 37 years in the house where he died. Mr. Eidemiller was a member of the Church of God and a minister of that faith will be in charge of the last rites. Funeral services will be held Sunday afternoon at 2 o'clock from the Irvin funeral home in this city. Burial will be made in Maple Hill cemetery in Tippecanoe City. Surviving besides the widow are a half-brother, Wade Eidemiller, and a half-sister, Mrs. Lillie Jackson, both of near Dayton. A daughter, Estella Grace, preceded him in death 15 years ago.
