Relationship to me: 1st cousin, 3x removed
This is one of the newspaper clippings that my grandmother Beatrice Strait had in her collection. When asked how William Repsher was connected to us, I got a curt answer. “He’s a Repsher. Somehow he’s related.” This is an undated clipping from an unknown newspaper.
Born in Swartswood, he lived in Newton four years and lived in Sussex 35 years before that. He was a retired well driller.
He is survived by his widow, Edith; a daughter, Mrs. Evelyn Hadowanetz of New York; two brothers, Warren and Harry., both of Newton; two sisters, Mrs. Elsie Wright and Mrs. Mabel Benson, both of Sussex; four grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren.
Funeral services will be at 8 p.m. tomorrow from he Smith-McCracken Funeral Home, Newton. Brother Abrams of the Jehovah Witnesses officiating.
[F]riends may call from 7 to 9 p.m. tomorrow at the funeral home.
