Ezra Herr died suddenly at his home, in West Lampeter town ship, Lancaster county, Monday, December 13, 1909. Mr. Herr was born in 1842 in the house in which he died and had resided all of his life. He was a son of the late Christian and Mary Herr, and a direct lineal descendant of Hans Herr, the pioneer of the family in America. He belonged to that branch of the family who for generations never departed from the original seat of the ancestral acres, and all of his life he followed' the pursuit in which they became famous, that of agriculture. He was intensely inter ested in the cause of public school education, and for many years was a member of the School Board of West Lampeter township. Mr. Herr was a man of pronounced literary ability. His reading covered a wide latitude, and he possessed a remarkable memory. In his earlier years he was also an extensive traveler, and he enjoyed personal acquaintanceship with many men of note. Mr. Herr is survived by one daughter, Maude, wife of Ralph Haverstick, now residing in Rock Island, Ill., and a son, Clyde, at home. One brother, Mr. Amaziah Herr, of Strasburg, and two sisters, Mrs. Addie Foreman, of this city, and Mrs. Louisa Nissley, of Perry county, also survive.
