JOSEPH ITEN, 69, DIES IN NEW YORK.
Joseph Iten, 69, a Hamilton resident for 19 years
until 1928, died at Conesus, New York, Saturday night, after a period of
declining health, according to word received by his sister, Mrs. Emil LaChambre.
Funeral services are planned for later this week at Conesus.
Mr. Iten and his brother, Chris, came to the valley
from Canton Zug, Switzerland, in 1907, and within a few years their partnership
in the Daly property as stockmen specializing in purebred dairy stock and
fine draft horses, had gained wide prominence. Chris, who was a stockman
here until 1945, died while on a visit to Switzerland in 1948.
Mr. Iten and his family left here because of his
health about 1928 and settled in Conesus, although not living there all
the time. His wife and son, Joseph Jr, 24 preceded him in death.
Survivors include a daughter, Mary Iten, and son,
Leo, Conesus; cousin, Joseph Iten, Hamilton, and several nieces and nephews.
