Berry of Johnstown who also made her home with the family for some years is another granddaughter. There were six children in the Woleslagle family, three of the boys and one of the daughters having preceded their father to the grave.

The remains were brought to Johnstown over the Somerset & Cambria Branch Sunday night and taken to the Pringle home, where they remained until noon to-day, when they were accompanied by relatives to Wilmore for interment this afternoon alongside of those of deceased's first wife, who was before her marriage Miss Patience Steer.
