DEATHS  AND  FUNERALS
-----------
          William H. Deiwert, one of the oldest residents in the southern part of Shelby county, died at his home, one mile west of Norristown, Wednesday night at nine o'clock, at the age of eighty-two years and seven days.  Deceased was one of the most highly respected citizens in the county.  He has been a Mason for more that fifty years, his membership being in the Farmers' Lodge at Norristown.  He was also a member of the chapter of the Eastern Star that was formerly maintained at that place, and was one of the leaders in the Norristown Grange.  He was a devoted member of the Methodist church at Norristown, and was faithful to all its teachings. In his declining days his wants have been looked after by his daughter, Mrs. Alex Clark, she and her husband making their home with him.  His wife, who was a half sister to Thomas Newton, of this city, died several years ago.  He is also survived by seven children: David and Mrs. William Benson, of Norristown; Mrs. David Bepler, of this city; George, of near Greensburg; Edgar, of Bartholomew county, and Mrs. A. I. Monroe, of near Flat Rock Cave.  Mr. Deiwert had spent nearly all of his life in this county.  Once, however, he left its boundaries hearkening to the lure of the California gold fields, back in '49.  He had always been successful along financial lines and was the owner of a fine farm that is valued at $150 per acre. Hageman & Hawkins have charge of the funeral services, which will be held Saturday morning at ten o'clock in the Norristown M. E. church.
