ROSENBERGER, John Henry

Frostburg, Md., Aug. 15 - John Henry Rosenberger, 15-year-old high school student, was found drowned in the old reservoir near here this afternoon after being missing from his home about two miles west of here near the National Highway, since Tuesday. According to members of his family, he left his home Tuesday evening, planning to visit his sister, Mrs. Clara McKenzie, near Finzel, and when he did not return, his family assumed he had decided to stay on his sister's farm a few days. This morning, however, another sister, Mary Rosenberger, noticed that he had not worn his shoes when he left, and being of the opinion that the youth would not go so far as Finzel without his shoes, the family investigated. They learned that he had not been to his sister's farm, and a short time later, a neighbor boy, Bernard Knepp, discovered the young Rosenberger's clothing near the old reservoir. City officials were notified, and Benjamin H. Thomas, chief of police, and others proceeded to drain the old reservoir. The boy's body was found lying under eight feet of water in the huge concrete basin. He was wearing an improvised bathing suit and evidently drowned after becoming exhausted or being stricken with a cramp. The body was removed to his home, and funeral services will probably be held Saturday afternoon. Surviving are the boy's parents, Mr. and Mrs. John Rosenberger; four brothers, Thomas and Gurney Rosenberger of near Flnzel, and Arthur and Emory Rosenberger at home. He also leaves six sisters, Mrs. Anthony Drees and Mrs. James McKenzie, near Finzel; Mary, Alberta, Edna, and Evelyn Rosenberger, at home. The youth was well known here and had been a student of Beall High School.

ROTRUCK, Andrew
Harman
(see also RODRUCK, Andrew Harman


The bonny,
blue-eyed darling little boy, Andrew Harman Rotruck, passed to the joys beyond
August 4, 1911, aged 3 years, 7(?) months and 27 days. How rich the heritage to
a home of a life so freighted with truth and trust and love, so full of fun,
faith and fervor. The merry moments of such a life ever sparkle like golden
sunbeams dancing on the silver seat of time. The sacred ties formed with the
children reach from home to the Heaven, and ministering angels come and go upon
them throughout the journey of life. But the Lord has recognized the little ones
as his earthly jewels. They are His heritage and to Him they belong. He always
greets them at their coming with His loving, welcoming smiles, and He ever is
saying, "Suffer little children to come unto Me and forbid them not for of such
is the Kingdom of Heaven."
The deceased was an only son of Joseph and
Elizabeth Rortruck, of Keyser. Three daughters survive. The cause of sickness
was not understood by the physicians. The funeral was conducted at the home on
Water street on Saturday at 2 p.m. by G. S. Arnold. Interment in the Leatherman
grave yard.
