      SPEIDEL-The Speidel family on Dearborn street is a sadly afflicted family, three members of it having died within three months. A daughter, Mary, died Nov 23, the father died Jan. 7, and now we have to record the death of Frank, who died Feb. 24. He was taken ill with partial paralysis and went to the Sisters' Hospital a week later, where he lingered until last Sunday, when he passed away. For a few days before his death he was entirely speechless. The doctors were unable to locate his trouble, but knew it was some pressure on the brain. It appears that while working at the Buffalo Spring and Gear Works last fall he was struck on the head by a piece of machinery, which raised a large bump, but after the swelling want away he didn't notice any more of it and the family had forgotten all about it, but after his death it was found that a large tumor had formed in his head, hence the pressure on his brain and the consequent paralysis. Francis Xavier Speidel was born at 232 Dearborn street, where the family still reside, and was well known in Black Rock. He was 28 years, 5 months and 27 days of age. He was a carpenter by trade and worked for George Argus shortly before he was taken ill. He was a member of St. Francis Xavier Society. He was married Feb. 12, 1890, to Frederika Kling, who survives to mourn his loss, together with a little boy and little girl, his mother, five brothers and three sister. The funeral took place Wednesday at St. Francis Xavier church; the remains being interred in the River Road Cemetery
