Death of Sidney O. Wenzer
The body of Sidney O. Wenzer, Civil War veteran and probate judge of Sheridan County for a number of years, who died Oct. 25 at the old soldiers' home at Leavenworth, is expected to arrive in Pittsburg today. He was the father of Mrs. W. H. Ports, 1013 East Tenth street. Mr. Wenzer was 78 years of age at the time of his death. He was born in Vermont, but after the Civil War, in which he lost his left foot, he came to Illinois, then Missouri, and finally to Kansas in 1885. He taught school, served as judge, and was postmaster.
He is survived by two sons – Cecil E., of Zurich, Kas., and Orville L., of New York City; and one daughter, Mrs. Ports, who resides here. Funeral arrangements have not been made.
