The East Liverpool Tribune

Henry Weible, aged 45, a potter, died at 11 o'clock yesterday morning (Jan. 10, 1906) at his home in College street. He had been in failing health for several years and death was due to a complication of diseases. He had been bedfast since the latter part of December. A short funeral service will be held at the home at 1:30 Friday afternoon and other services will be held in St. John's Evangelical Lutheran church at 2:30 o'clock. The pastor, The Rev. J. G. Reinartz, will officiate.

Mr. Weible was a son of John Weible, a pioneer potter of this city, and was born and raised here. Mr. Weible followed the trade of a jiggerman until ill health compelled him to give up his duties in the pottery. He was last employed at the national pottery. He was a member of the Sons of Veterans and also of the local lodge of Odd Fellows. He is survived by his wife and the following children: Mabel, Ida, Lillian and Bessie, also by two sisters, Mrs. Mary Hepner, of this city, and Mrs. Josephine Alberts of Fredericktown.
