December 5, 1906, was the fourteenth anniversary of the 1892 establishment of the free mail delivery system in Watertown. A fact in connection with the same is that George Weber and Frank Schulz, present carriers, have been in the service ever since the inauguration of the system. They are two of the original four.

On Tuesday, one of our citizens in their best years passed away.  William Daniel Weber, cooper by trade, served in the artillery (1st WI light artillery) during the war.  Suffering from severe bleeding in the last year, physically very weak, a violent hemorrhage, took his life.


W. D. Weber was put to rest with members of Odd Fellows and Turners preceding the funeral, also the Musikcorps Band.  He leaves his grieving widow (Sarah Jane Irish Weber, second wife) and four children (George, from William's first wife, and Etta, Frances A. and Charles W. Weber, from second wife).
