BALDWIN -- Died, A sister of Mrs. S. Munra, died in Chicago March 7, 1890. The Erie, Pa., Gazette of March 9th, in referring to the death says: Mrs. Baldwin was the youngest daughter of the late Judge Sterrett, the venerable founder of the Gazette. While in Erie a week ago she contracted a cold that resulted in pneumonia. Judge Sterrett s house was one of the most hospitable of the old time in Erie. His large family of young ladies and gentlemen attracted to their home a brilliant circle of distinguished guests, and the Sterrett homestead was famous for his cordial entertainment. Mrs. Baldwin is remembered with affection by all those who formed that circle in those days, and the news of her death was received with general sympathy and regret. Besides Mrs. Baldwin there survives a son and a daughter, both widely known in Erie by reason of their long residence here prior to their removal to Chicago. Her surviving sisters are Mrs. Truendell, of Erie; Mrs. Black, of Union City; and Mrs. Munra, of Oregon. One brother, John Sterrett, is still living in Erie.

BARBER, JESSIE - Chicago, Ill., April 22, ae. 4. This is the last surviving member of the family of the late Jabez Barber, of Chicago, who, with his wife and daughter, perished in the Collins steamer Pacific in 1856. At the time of his death his property was estimated at about $250,000, and has increased in value to $400,000. After leaving sensible provisions for the family during the settlement of the will, and $250 per annum to his four sisters in England during their lives; also to his wife’s sister, Matilda Wilde, of Chicago, $1,000; to the American and Foreign Missionary Society, $1,000; to the American Home Missionary Society, $1,000; to the American Bible Society, $1,000; to the Third Presbyterian Church, Chicago, $3,000 – the balance of the property was left for the benefit of the family; and, as the child whose death is recorded above was the only surviving member, she was the sole heir. In case of her death, it was to revert to the next of kin. The nearest of kin are Mary Ann, Harriet and Lucy Barber, of Birmingham, England, and Eliza Bell, of Simcoe, C.E.

BATCHELLER, EZRA - The funeral of Ezra Batcheller, who died at Grand Haven, Mich., Monday, occurs at that city this forenoon at 10 o'clock and remains will be taken to Lyons, Iowa, for interment.
Mr. Batcheller came to Chicago in 1837 from Paxton, Mass. where he was born Nov. 10, 1820. Arriving in Chicago he entered the employ of Philo Carpenter, who at that primative day was doing business where the lumber market now stands. Mr. Batcheller saw in young Chicago's rapid growth financial gain, and invested in real estate, entering the firm of Holden & Batcheller. In 1865 he removed to Lyons, Iowa, where he entered the real estate business and found a wife. Mr. Batcheller was until ten years ago a prominent and respected citizen of Lyons, being major of the city at one time. In 1880 he returned to Chicago and again entered the real estate business in this city. By dint of hard work he accumulated a large estate. Two years ago his health began to fail him, and last November he went to Grand Haven, Michigan, to visit a sister and try and regain his wanted health. Relief did not come, however, and during the last nine months he failed rapidly, a combination of diseases hastening his end. One of the old settlers, his death will cause many reminiscences of the past among many of those who ar left and whom in his delightful social way Mr. Batcheller was accustomed to entertain. The deceased leaves a daughter, Mrs. J.F. Baker, Clinton, Iowa; a sister, Mrs. Sarah Shippey, Grand Haven, Michigan; and two brothers, Webster Batcheller of Chicago, and Jenison Batcheller, Glens Falls, New York.

CHICAGO CONSTABLE KILLED. Said to Have Been Lured Into Saloon for Purpose of Murder. Chicago, Dec. 3. Julius F. Biederman. a constable, was shot and killed this afternoon while attempting to remove a slot machine from a saloon kept by Joseph Brunner at Western avenue and James street. Biederman went to the saloon, saying that he had authority from Justice Hurley to remove the machine, and was dragging it from the place, when he was attacked by three men, two of whom are said to have worn constable's stars. Several shots were fired, Biederman being the first to use his weapon. The police have arrested three men whom they accuse of being those who attacked Biederman, but decline to give their names. It is claimed by some of Biederman's friends that he was lured to the place for the purpose of taking his life, but no evidence of such a conspiracy has been disclosed.
