DEATH OF AN OLD SETTLER

 

We learn that GERHARD H. HEHMAN, who was about the first settler in the town of Pella, this county, met with a fatal accident last week. The particulars we did not learn any further than that he went out to look after his cows, and was found the next day dead, his head resting upon a rock, and it is supposed that he fell from a log, striking his head upon the rock, causing his death. He was much respected by those who knew him, and his death is deeply regretted. Mr. H. was the father of Wm. Hehman, who has the sympathy of the community in his affliction.
