Body Is Brought to Marion for Burial.

Andrew J. Peters, former resident of this city, died Tuesday afternoon at 4:30 o'clock at the home of his daughter, Mrs. R. E. Osbun, of Silver Brook farm, three miles east of Muncie, Indiana.  His death was caused from hardening of the artieries and the infirmities of age.  Mr. Peters was ninety-five years of age and was born in Wyandot county.  He had passed practically all his life in Marion county and for a number of years had resided in this city.  Two years ago he left Marion to make his home with Mrs. Osbun.

Mr. Peters is survived by four daughters and one son.  They are Mrs. Osbun, Mrs. Henry Rhodes, of Morral; Miss Alice Peters, of Bluffton, Indiana; Miss Jennie Peters, of Wapakoneta, and Harley Peters, of Uhler avenue.  Six grandchildren and three great-grandchildren also survive.  He was a member of Trinity Baptist church, and for a number of years served as deacon.

The remains were brought to Marion today at 12:40 o'clock and taken to the H. Schaffner company's undertaking parlors on south Main street.  The funeral services will be held Thursday afternoon at 2 o'clock from the undertaking parlors, in charge of Rev. George M. Landis, pastor of Trinity Baptiest church.  Burial will be made in Brush Ridge cemetery.  The remains may be viewed this evening from 7 to 9 o'clock and Thursday until the funeral hour.

14.  J. Wilbur Jacoby.  1907.  History of Marion County, Ohio, and Representative Citizens.  Biographical Publ. Co., Chicago, IL (Broderbund CD-450; also online at Heritage Pursuit):
DREW J. PETERS, one of Marion's most highly respected citizens, who has been a resident of this city for the past 15 years, was born in 1829 in Madison township, Pickaway County, Ohio.

Mr. Peters was reared and educated in Pickaway County and there followed farming until 1859, when he moved to Wyandot County and bought 80 acres of timberland.  This he cleared and placed in a state of high cultivation, erected all of the necessary farm buildings, and remained there until 1892, when he came to Marion where he has since continued to reside. During his residence in Wyandot County he took a very active interest in politics and served as trustee of Antrim township.  He has been a member of the Free Baptist Church for a period of 40 years and is a deacon of the church at Marion.

Andrew J. Peters was married in 1856 to Almira Wolsey, of Wyandot County, who died in 1884. Eight children were born to Mr. and Mrs. Peters, the five survivors being: Jennie, who was educated at the Ohio Normal University and has been principal of the Silver street public school at Marion ever since its erection; Alice, who was also educated at the Ohio Normal University and is a teacher in the Marion schools; Josephine, who married R. E. Osbun and resides on the home farm in Wyandot County; Ida, who married Henry Rhodes, a farmer of Marion County; and Harley, who was also educated at the Ohio Normal University and is a teacher in the Marion County schools.  Two children died in infancy; Hattie, who was a successful teacher, died in 1902.
