John Traister, Sr., father of Mrs. Bettie Shenk, who died in Washington recently, suffered a tragic death at the hands of Captain Custer of the Union Army in 1864. "Messrs. Traister and Peter R. Bell," says the Strasburg News, "two noble men, were shot to death by Custer's orders because some loafing, worthless, bushwacker killed a Union Soldier in front of Mr. Traister's house."
