Solomon Nungesser, one of the oldest and best known men in this section of the county, died at the home of his daughter Mrs. Nelson Cauley, a short distance from St. Johns, Saturday morning. Had he lived until August 18, he would have obtained the age of 87 years. He had been a resident of Butler Twp. For the past 20 years and during that time was active and healthy until last fall when his eyesight began to fail and his decline became noticable.

The deceased was born in Germany but came to this country when a young man, beginning his active occupation on the old Hazleton Railroad and became one of the first engineers on that track. After running a locomotive for some years the war broke out and he enlisted in the 8th Cavalry Regiment of Pennsylvania volunteers serving his enlistment, when he returned to this town and was again given his position as engineer on the Lehigh Valley Railroad which position he followed for many years, until his age prevented further service in that direction. His funeral will take place on Tuesday with interment in the cemetery at that place.
