BETCHEL, Emanuel C. – (d. 1926)

Willow Branch – E. C. Betchel

We were grieved to learn of the death of Mr. E.C. Betchel, which occurred last Wednesday, February 3, from pneumonia. He was ill but a short while. He is survived by his wife and three sons, Mr. Warren Betchel of Verona and two sons who live in South Dakota, who attended the burial, which took place at Union cemetery. In the passing of Mr. Betchel the community has lost a good man of refined character and high moral principals.
