Mace J Laird ( Port Angeles Evening News 27 Dec 1926 )

At 9 Christmas night Mace J Laird passed away quietly after a brief illness. All of his children were at the bedside to bid a last good bye to a loving father.

Those that knew Mr. Laird mourn his loss for they were impressed with the man;s virtues, so pronounced in his character. Since his wife's death 34 years ago, he has reared the little brood, which she left him as a heritage and he won a place in the hearts of those who know him more intimately. His even temper and kind nature appeared to be proof against all of the small sordid outgrowth of human nature in the humdrum of life.

Mr. Laird passed away a the Hillside Hospital. He was 73 years old and was born at Rochester, NY from which place he moved to Michigan. About 35 years ago he came to Port Angeles with his family and his wife died shortly after.

For several years he owned the quaint little farm at the head of the bay, which he sold to the Crescent Boxboard company, and on which they erected their present plant. From the proceeds of the sale he purchased the farm, which is now familiar to all, known as the "Laird's Corner" and resided there with his 2 boys until the end.

Mr. Laird leaves to mourn his loss 4 children, namely: Mrs. Leona Steik of Port Angeles; Ross Laird, married, of Bremerton, WA; and 2 unmarried sons, Clement and Arthur who resided with the father at the farm; also 6 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren.

The funeral will take place tomorrow at 2pm and will be conducted from the Lyden-Freeman Funeral Parlors.

Luella Isabella Jaques Land ( d Aug 1, 1887 )

Land--At Port Angeles, August 1st, 1887

For the first time in the history of the organization of the Colony [Puget Sound Cooperative Colony] , we are called upon to chronicle the death of one of our comrades, and although it would be hard for us to choose the one who would be missed less, yet again, it would be more keenly felt. Three little daughters, too young to realize the meaning of the event, are left bereft of the solicitude and care of the gently and loving mother the husband and father, must, yield up a companion with whom he hoped fondly to walk down the path of life to a good old age.

And the Colony has lost a conscientious, consistent member, one who thoroughly understood the principles of cooperation, and was greatly needed in our midst. Her untimely taking away is a great loss to all as well as to Mr. Land who had [several words illegible] of every member of the Colony.

All work in the Colony was suspended on Tuesday afternoon in order that every person might attend the funeral, and pay the last sad tribute of respect to our sister. Father Alexander Mason was chosen to conduct the services, and after a hymn was sung, he read a chapter from the Bible, and offered a prayer, that the sad event might be a lesson to the living. At the grave the hymn "Nearer My God to Thee" was sung, after which Grandfather Mason gave the following brief history of our sisters life:

"Luella Isabella Jaques, born in Hudson, MI, Dec 19, 1859 became the consort of Paul Land in Cleveland, OH, July 2, 1880 to which place she with her parents moved about 8 years ago. From about the 12th year of her age she became a member of the Congregational Church, and continued an active worker in it during her stay in the place of her nativity, always assisting in the duties of the church and also a zealous worker in the temperance cause wherever opportunity offered. She, faithful to her duty as a loving companion did not hesitate to accompany her husband to seek a new home in this distant country; leaving a mother and other relatives behind.

She felt anxious to join this association, believing it would be a place in which she could rear her children in the true principles of pure Christianity as she conceived them to be. But circumstances beyond our control have ordered things otherwise, and now we behold her held in the arms of death and cut off from all these fond hopes. Thus the deceased was 28 years, 8 months and 3 days old."

President Smith made some beautiful and appropriate remarks, and then "with morn, with noon, with night, with changing clouds and changeless stars, with grass, with trees and birds, with leaf and bud, with flower and blossoming vine, with all the sweet influences of nature, we left our dead."

Wife, Mother, Comrade, farewell.


Land--At Port Angeles, W.T., Friday morning, Aug 26th 1887, Luella, infant daughter of Paul Land, aged 4 weeks.

For years he was one of the best known men of the city and county. During his younger days he was engaged in the pile driving business and helped drive many of the docks and trestles in the harbor. For a number of years he has been farming and owned the fine Moss Land farm a few miles east of the city on the Olympic Highway.

Stephen Land, 78, for 40 years one of the leading citizens of Port Angeles and Clallam County passed away at his home at Lincoln and Boulevard last night from an illness extending over 6 weeks.

Mr. Land, while pruning a fruit tree several weeks ago in his home orchard, fell and fractured several ribs. He caught cold and pneumonia developed. Only his strong willpower and great vitality kept him alive for so long.

Stephen Land was born in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, July 18, 1849. He came to Ohio with his parents when he was 16 years of age, and was married to Celia S Robison at McCutchonville, OH July 3, 1872.

For many years the late Mr. Land was the county horticulturist and was an authority on things of that nature. He took an all absorbing interest in fruits and berries and was untiring in his efforts for the betterment of the orchards and berry fields.

His home at Lincoln and Boulevard was one of the show places of the county. He took it up from the wilderness 35 years ago and planted a fine orchard and garden that had been an unfailing source of pleasure to him and all visitors.

No county fair was complete in Clallam County without Mr. Land being in charge of the fruit and vegetable displays and he has prepared many exhibits of Clallam County products that hove won high honors at other fairs about the state.

Up until the time that he was stricken with his last illness, Mr. Land, despite his advanced years, was intensely interested in everything in his line of work and was very active. Coming of the same stock as Col. Charles A Lindbergh's mother, being a second cousin of her, he showed that determined trait of character that made of that young man a world hero.

Mr. Land was a real pioneer who beautified and developed every bit of waste land that he came into contact with and Clallam County is better for his long residence here and his name will always be remembered when matters pertaining to fruits, vegetables or berries are discussed.

A life long member of all Masonic bodies, Mr. Land received all the honors that could be bestowed by that organization. He was one of the oldest member of the Port Angeles lodge of Masons and Mrs. Land of the Eastern Star.

Mr. and Mrs. Land celebrated their Golden Wedding Anniversary in this city 5 and a half years ago. It was one of the great events of the county as Mr. and Mrs. Land were the recognized head of a clan of relatives that is numbered by the score. This clan has lost its leader and they and hundreds of Port Angeles and Clallam County citizens mourn with Mr. Land and the immediate family over the loss of the patriarch.

Lewis Levy ( Port Angeles Evening News 18 Jan 1926 )

Lewis Levy, 73, a pioneer real estate man of Port Angeles, whose one thought in life was the upbuilding of this city, passed away early this morning from stomach trouble after an illness of only a few days.

Mr. Levy was taken ill late last week and was taken from a hotel room to a hospital where at first he showed signs of improvement. His advanced age and the fact that his heart had become weakened, caused him not to rally to treatment and he passed away this morning.

Mr. Levy was born in Poland. He came to Port Angeles in May, 1888, and that same year became a naturalized citizen of the United States. Some of his earlier days were spent in Victoria and in Alaska but his home was in NY previous to coming here.

Upon his arrival here, Mr. Levy went into the real estate business and for all the years that have followed he has been in that business here, at times having other business interests, but with the real estate business as his main occupation.

Mr. Levy is survived by his widow, Mrs. Helen Levy of this city, a son Arnold, also of this city, who graduated in law from the NYU and another son, George Levy, a physician in NYC. Julius Kirschberg, a life long friend, is a brother of Mrs. Levy.

From all sources n the community there are coming expression of regret for the sudden calling of Mr. Levy. He was absolutely tireless in his efforts in behalf of Port Angeles and its upbuilding and his last act on earth was a request that he might sign an affidavit in regards to some property "To help the city progress" as he put it.

There was not a man in the county who knew property values as well as Mr. Levy. He had faith in this city and county that never grew dim. He was for this city, first, last, and all the time and his life seemed to be dedicated to the upbuilding of the city that he saw grown from a village on the beach to its present size and in a measure, Port Angeles itself is a monument to him and his labor for in truth he was a builder of it.

Mr. Levy had many close friendships with Victoria businessmen and had during all of his life here, acted as agent for them in their property interests and they give him their fullest confidence.

Full details of the funeral have not yet been made. Mr. Levy was a member of the Masons and Elks lodges and these 2 bodies will have charge of the funeral ceremonies.

Nellie Leyendecker

Nellie Leyendecker, aged 31, was found drowned in the river, where the Bogachiel joins the Sol Duc, Tuesday night after a search that started when her horse returned riderless. She had been swimming the horse across the river, as she had been accustomed to doing, when she fell into the water, how, no one knows.

Mrs. Leyendecker had been the guest of "Grandma" Klahn and her son William for the mid day meal, and when she left, took off at a gallop across the field. They had cautioned her against swimming the river on her horse, but she had done so often and was not to be persuaded. Her intention was to cross to her home and then cross the river again to go to Johnny Hermanson's place with a message. On her second crossing disaster overtook her.

According to one of her sisters, who has arrived in Forks, the victim of the tragic accident was able to swim. She rode a big, spirited horse that she had under perfect control. However, a horse easily becomes panic stricken when swimming and is awkward when in the water, and it is possible that he may have struck a snag and floundered. Mrs. Leyendecker wore high heeled cowgirl boots, and one of them was missing when the body was found. There was no mark on the body, as there would have bee if, for instance, she had been struck by the horse's head.

Joe Leyendecker, her brother-in-law, notified Deputy Sheriff Holenstein at 7:15 that she was missing, and a search party was immediately organized. The help of the Coast Guard was enlisted at 9:30 and at 10:15, just 15 minutes after they got their boat in the water, they had recovered the body. Neighbors report that they had heard someone shouting in the river at the time they later found that she had drowned. At the time, however, they had thought the cries were made by children swimming and detected no note of distress. The accident is believed to have happened about 1:30 pm.

Funeral services will be held Saturday at 2pm at the Assembly of God Church.

The deceased is survived by a daughter and a son, both under ten, her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Monce Bergstrom and 2 brothers, Leonard and Owen, of Ontario, OR; 2 sisters, Mrs. Cleo Welsh of Canyonville, OR; and Mrs. Emily Sweazy of Puyallup; a grandmother, Mrs. Hattie Lyon and aunt Mrs. George Critchfield, who live near Port Angeles at Dry Creek; an uncle, Clifford Lyon of Idaho and other relatives.

Harry [Elmer] Lutz ( d Dec 12, 1950 )

Harry E Lutz, 90, one of Clallam County's most prominent pioneer citizens, died in Los Angeles Tuesday, Dec 12, after an extended illness. Private funeral services were in the Church of the Little Flowers, Los Angeles, last Thursday. Burial was Monday in Lake View Cemetery, Seattle, in the family plot.

Born in Circleville, Ohio, Sep 18, 1860, Mr. Lutz descended from a family that came to the United States in 1700 and migrated from Pennsylvania to Ohio before the War of 1812.

He graduated from Wittenberg College, Springfield, Ohio in 1879 and for the next 2 years traveled and attended school in Europe. His father had also graduated from Wittenberg. When the young man returned from Europe, he practiced law after being admitted tot he bar in 1883. He became postmaster of his home town and owned and edited the city's newspaper, the Circleville Union-Herald. He held these positions for 6 years. At the time of his death, Mr. Lutz was the oldest living graduate of Wittenberg College.

An elder brother, Lt. John E Lutz, one of the first graduates of the US Revenue Cutter Training ship, had come west and was interested in land ventures. Among them was the building of a Union Pacific railroad terminus at Port Crescent and the operation of a car ferry to Victoria. Victoria capitalists also were interested in the venture. The late Lt. Lutz commanded revenue cutters on the sound and Alaska.

Harry E Lutz came west in 1890 to Port Crescent and immediately started the promotion of a city there, and the area soon had a considerable number of settlers. The town was a contender, for the location of the county seat that had been at New Dungeness since the start of territorial days. In the vote on the question Port Angeles received 687 votes, Port Crescent 293 and New Dungeness 7 and the county seat came here late in 1890.

Port Crescent failed to develop into a big city when the railroad did not come there and most folks left. The town had a revival about 20 years later when it was the center of a large logging development but after the timber was cut down the adjoining area, it became a ghost town and now no buildings remain of the townsite.

When Port Crescent folded, Mr. Lutz moved here and organized the Bank of Clallam County in 1895 and was its principal owner. He also owned a clothing store here., In 1896 he bought a local weekly newspaper, the Simoo _?_ from E E Stevens and changed its name to Clallam County Courier. As editor, he operated it as a republican newspaper through the political campaign of that fall and for about a year after. Associated with him was Louis R Flowers, a free-lance newspaper man. The paper was sold to Ben T Smith, a local printer, and later was merged with the Tribune-Times.

Mr. Lutz moved to Seattle in 1905. He had gone into partnership with Cyrus F Clapp, a Port Townsend and Seattle capitalist, forming the Cyrus F Clapp Investment Company to deal in Seattle real estate.

When he left here, Mr. Lutz turned over operation of the Bank of Clallam County to his brother, the late S J Lutz, who operated it until 1923 when it was absorbed by the Washington State Bank.

During his residence on the Olympic Peninsula, Mr. Lutz was US commissioner 13 years and court commissioner 8 years.

About 20 years ago he started making trips to California, first spending part of his time at San Francisco and later changing his residence wholly to Los Angeles, where his 2 younger sons were living.

Donald H Lutz, Port Angeles banker, arrived at his father's bedside before his death. He and his 3 brothers were at the Los Angeles funeral and brought his father's body to Seattle for burial.

The sons are Dr. Ralph H Lutz of Stanford University, Palo Alto, CA, one of the co-founders of the Hoover War Library at the university and for many years an instructor at the school; Donald H Lutz, long time resident of Port Angeles; Harold Lutz, manager of the Bank of California at Whittier, CA; and Hugh Lutz, Los Angeles lawyer.

Mr. Lutz had 5 granddaughters, 2 great grandsons and one great-granddaughter. Mr. Lutz was married twice, to sisters [Haswell] and both preceded him in death.

Samuel J Lutz ( d 15 Sep 1936 )

Funeral services for the late Samuel J Lutz, 69, city commissioner and pioneer, who died Tuesday afternoon, will be held Friday morning at 9 at the Queen of Angels Catholic Church. Rev. Father Bernard Neary, O. S. J. will officiate and the remains will be taken to Victoria Saturday for burial there. The McDonald Funeral Home has charge of the rites.

The remains are at the family home, 312 W 8th St. and will be taken from there to the church for the funeral. Active pallbearers will be Fred Henson, Nat Hawkins, James Gallagher, T J Gierin, Sr., J P Christensen and Henry Reis.

Surviving relatives are the widow of this city and 2 daughters, Sister Mary Olive Ann, Louards [thus] Hospital, Campbell River, BC and sister Mary Celicia, Little Flower Academy, Vancouver, BC; 2 brothers, Harry E Lutz, Los Angeles; and John E Lutz, of California; and one sister, Mrs. James Bennett, San Francisco. There are also a number of nephews, among whom are Donald Lutz of Port Angeles.

The late Mr. Lutz was a charter member of the Moose lodge of this city. He joined the Elks' Lodge in Circleville, OH in 1887 and became a member of Naval Lodge of this city by demit in 1916. He retained his membership in both lodges, He was a member of the Catholic Church.

He was born in Circleville, OH, Jan 31, 1867.

When the news that Sam Lutz had died became known Tuesday, there was universal grief in the city of Port Angeles and Clallam County. Persons in every walk in life paused to say a word for a man who was perhaps the city's most beloved citizen.

It was notable that every person who knew Sam Lutz expressed the feeling that he or she had lost a personal friend when the kindly, hones man passed. This feeling was expressed in a realistic manner at the last city election when he was elected city commissioner by one of the largest votes ever given a candidate here.

For a decade stories will be told about Sam Lutz. He was an unique character with a sense of humor that expressed itself in short, dry remarks that were gems of their kind.

Sam Lutz came from his home in Ohio 45 years ago and first settled at Port Crescent where he was interested with his brother Harry E Lutz, in the development of what was thought would be a great railway terminal. A few years later he came here to be associated with his brother in the Bank of Clallam County and in a mercantile business.

At once Sam Lutz made for himself a place in the pioneer community. For a decade he was in charge of the bank's affairs and in those years he made the strong friendships that clung to him forever. Scores and scores of people, some of them now wealthy, credit Sam Lutz with aiding them in times of financial stress and by this help they declare they were able to weather the economic storm. He had great faith in humanity and his judgment of men was seldom wrong.

The late Mr. Lutz had the faculty of making friends and holding them and once a friend was always a friend to him and that friend could never do wrong in the eyes of the kind-hearted man.

After Harry E Lutz sold his holdings in the Bank of Clallam County, the late Sam Lutz became an official of the Washington State Bank and remained with that institution until it closed and then was elected commissioner of finance of the city of Port Angeles. This was a fitting reward for his reputation of sterling honesty and his administration of the city's financial affairs has been marked by efficiency and honesty.
