OBITUARY: FREDERICK DRESSLER (1832-1917) From the "Little River Monitor" Vol. 32 #19 dated Oct. 11, 1917: "FRED DRESSLER-Fred Dressler was born in Union County, Pennsylvania, May 18, 1832*, and died at Hutchinson, Kansas, October 8, 1917, aged 85 years, 4 months and 15 days. As a young man he came west and located in the state of Michigan where, on December 25, 1856, he was united in marriage to Miss Lucinda Hatfield. Nine children were born to them--five sons and four daughters. Three sons and two daughters survive him--W. E. and Grant Dressler, of Hutchinson; Charles Dressler of Geneseo; Mrs. M. F. Rose of Satanta, Kansas, and Mrs. E. E. Morgan of Knoxville, Iowa. He came to Rice County, Kansas, in an early day and settled on a farm near Crawford, where he lived for a number of years. He professed religion many years ago and united with the Wesleyan Methodist Church at Forest Home school house. He was a good man, and had many friends who, with his sorrowing relatives, will miss him much. He said, just a few days before he died, that he was ready to leave this world, and his loved ones said good-bye, expecting to meet him in the better world. Funeral services were held Thursday afternoon at Forest Home school house by the Rev. George Watts of Little River, after which the remains were laid to rest in Forest **Home cemetery." *Other records show it as 1834. **Now known as Forest Grove cemetery.

OBITUARY: Lucinda (HATFIELD) DRESSLER (1834-1904) "Little River Monitor" Vol. XVIII #41 dated March 24, 1904: "Mrs. Fred Dressler at Rest. Lucinda, beloved wife of Mr. Fred Dressler, residing near Crawford, departed this life Tuesday, March 22, 1904; age 69 years. The funeral was conducted at the Forest Home school house by the Wesleyan Methodist minister of Crawford, at 11 o'clock a.m., Wednesday, and the remains were laid to rest in the Forest *Home cemetery. The bereaved husband and children have the sympathy of many friends during their time of deep sorrow and affliction." *Now known as Forest Grove cemetery.

He lived on a farm near Little River before moving to Hutchinson in 1906. He was employed by the Guymon-Petro Mercantile Co. 26 years. Mr. and Mrs. Dressler would have celebrated their 59th anniversary next April 12. Funeral service will be held at 2;30 o'clock tomorrow afternoon at the First Methodist church with Rev.

Mrs. Rose was born in Iowa on Feb 1, 1871, and had lived in Reno county for 20 years. She had been known to many for the "wayside well" on her property where pure soft water has been available to anyone for the pumping. She is survived by a daughter, Mrs. Fern McMillion and a step daughter, Mrs. Opal Johnson of Pueblo, CO.; a sister Mrs. Alice Morgan, Knoxville, IA., and several nieces and nephews.

FRED DRESSLER: The death of Fred Dressler occurred this morning at two o'clock at his home at 202 Ninth Avenue East, after an illness of five days. He was born in Rice County in 1886 and came to this city twelve years ago, where he took up the milling trade, and was with the Reno Flour Mills at the time of his death. He was married to Miss Cora Carpenter of Pratt in 1910 and besides his wife, he is survived by three children, Mildred age 7, Maxine age 5, and Jack age 3.

Two other children, *Mildred aged eight years and little Jack, four years old, are also very low and not expected to live. Mrs. Dressler was formerly Miss Cora Carpenter of Pratt and her mother Mrs. Campbell and two brothers who live at Pratt survive her.

Jack's father died last Thursday, and his mother and baby sister passed away last Monday. The funeral will be held Sundeay, from Crocker's Parlors.

*Note the third child, Mildred, who was eight in 1919, recovered from the influenza. She lived with her grandparents, but died six years later in 1925.
