bspecially prominent may be found John H. Latshaw, a
jfarmer near Passmore; David H. Latshaw, a merchant at
Bechtelsville ; Samuel B. Latshaw, miller, coal merchant,

; ber of small children and no one to help in the house.

, obliged to do in those days for merchandise or help) for
a woman to look after his home and children. He was

Mr.yTjaBel, had died on the voyage to America, leaving
his widow with two small children. At Philadelphia she
began a struggling life with her children, finding a place as
servant in a Germantown family. Mr. Latshar became ac-
quainted with her, persuaded her to accompany him home
as housekeeper, and later they were married. Her son,
Henry Gabel , was taken along with them, and early in

IRWIN H. BECHTEL, a successful and progressive
merchant at Bally, in Washington township, Berks county,
was born Jan. 7, 1866, son of William B. Bechtel. and he
died May 16, 1902.

William B. Bechtel was born June 20, 1835. He was
the first merchant to open a general store in Bally, and
after carrying on the business until 1898, sold it and the
premises to his son, while he himself engaged in the
manufacture of paper, under the name of the West Branch
Paper Mill, in a mill located three miles east of the town,
and this he continued until his death, July 15, 1903. He
established the postoffice at Bally; it has continued in
the store until the' present time. He was active in church
life, belonging to the New Mennonite Church, which he
served oflScially many years. He married Elizabeth Him-
melwright daughter of John and Maria (Kiel) Him-
melwright, of near Bally, and they had one son, Irwin
H. Bechtel.

Irvvin H. Bechtel was educated in the public schools
and in the Keystone State Normal School at Kutztown.
He was licensed to teach by Prof. D. S. Keck, county
superintendent, and he taught two terms in Washington
township — one term at Dale and the other at Bally. His
father then took him into the store, where he gained prac-
tical knowledge of the mercantile business under his
father's guidance, and in 1898 became the purchaser of
the business, conducting it until his death.

Mr. Bechtel and his family were members of the New
I\Iennonite Church at Bally. For some years he was as-
sistant superintendent of the Sunday-school, and then
became superintendent, which position he filled in a most
satisfactory manner until his decease, ably assisted by
his wife.

On Oct. 3, 1893, Mr. Bechtel married Mary Latshaw,
daughter of Samuel B.- Latshaw, and two children were
born of this union, Stanley Latshaw and Irwin Russell.
Since her husband's decease, Mrs. Bechtel has carried
on the business in a most satisfactory manner, serving
also as postmistress.

HERBERT M. STERNBERGH, son of J. H. Stern-
bergh, was born in Reading, Jan. 5, 1871, and received
his education in the Lawrenceville School, near Prince-
ton, and at Harvard University.

After completing his education Mr. Sternbergh entered
the firm of his father, it becoming J. H. Sternbergh &
Son, and this firm was later merged into the American
Iron & Steel Manufacturing Company, which is now cap-
italized at $5,550,000, of which $3,000,000 is preferred and
$2,550,000 common stock, both being fully paid and non-
assessable. Our subject was made vice-president of this
company in 1901. and was its General Manager until
January, 1907. He is also president of the Acme Motor
Car Company, of Reading; president of the American
Die & Tool Company brought to Reading by Mr. Stern-
bergh from Wilmington, Del. ; and is vice-president of
the Kansas City Bolt & Nut Company, of which his fath-
er is president. At one time he was a director of the
First National Bank, but was compelled to give this up
as the duties of his other associations demanded his en-
tire attention.

Mr. Sternbergh was married, in 1894, to Harriet Hoff-
man, daughter of Dr. Walter J. Hoffman, a noted ethnol-
ogist, long connected with the Smithsonian Institute at
Washington, D. C, and consul to Mannheim, Germany,
under President McKinley's administration. Dr. Hoff-
man died in the fall of 1901, aged fifty-three years. Six
children have been born to Mr. and Mrs. Sternbergh, of
whom five are living: Van R. H., Harriet E., Regis
S., Marcia T., and Alan May. Mr. Sternbergh is a mem-
ber of the Wyomissing Club. In political principle
he is a Republican. He and his family make their hotne
in Reading.

WILLIAM McCORMICK, editor and proprietor of
the Reading Herald, was born in 1866, at Harrisburg,
Pennsylvania.

save for one year while teaching school in New York
State. He was reporter on papers in Boston and Phila-
delphia; editor of the Times at Bethlehem, Pa., for two
years; and in 1893 established the Leader at Allentown,
Pa. In 1896 he bought from John B. Dampman, a half
interest in the Reading Herald, and one year later be-
came sole owner.

Mr. McCormick makes his home in Mount Penn bor-
ough. He is unmarried.

GEORGE C. BORDNER, Professor of Higher M-ath-
ematics in the Keystone State Normal School, at Kutz-
town, and a well-known educator in Berks county, was
born- May 22, 1870, on the old Bordner homestead, in
Bethel township, half a mile east of Millersburg. He is
of the sixth generation in descent from the original (I)
Balthaser (Baltzer) Bordner, who at the age of thirty-
four years, together with his wife Marilles, aged thirty-
seven years, and three children — Jacob, Hanna and Mela,
aged ten, eight and seven years, respectively, — sailed from
Rotterdam on the ship "Adventurer," and landed at Phil-
adelphia, Sept. 22, 1732. Balthaser Bordner settled in
Tulpehocken township, Lancaster (now Berks) county,
immediately after landing, and died there in 1747.

(II) Jacob Bordner, son of Balthaser, and great-
great-grandfather of Prof. Bordner, was born in 1722.
He was executor of his father's estate, and on April
10, 1761, was naturalized as a citizen of Tulpehocken
township, Berks county, at the Supreme court of Phila-
delphia. On June 20, 1761, he purchased from Thomas
and Richard Penn the present Bordner homestead, which
had been leased to Jacob Hoffman, who was unable to
pay his rental. Since that day the homestead has been
owned by a son of each successive generation. Jacob
Bordner married Sarah Bait, and they reared a family
of seven children: Jacob (2), John, William, Daniel,
Peter, Anna Maria and Barbara. The father died in
1792, and by his will the homestead passed to his eldest
son Jacob (2).

(III) Jacob Bordner (2), son of Jacob, was born in
1754, and spent his whole life on the homestead. He
was married to Anna Maria Brosz, seven years his jun-
ior. They had a family of six children: Jacob (3),
John, Catharine, Elizabeth, Julian and Susanna. Jacob
Bordner (2) died in 1837, willing the homestead to his
eldest son Jacob (3). The widowed mother survived
her husband two years.

to his youngest son, Tliomas L.

(V) Thomas L. Bordner, son of Jacob (3) and fath-
er of Prof. Bordner, was born May 8, 1824, on the old
homestead where his whole life was passed. He was a
successful farmer and stock-raiser, and a man of local
prominence in politics. A stanch Democrat, he was elected
auditor, treasurer and school director at different times,
and in 1880 was a delegate to the Democratic State Con-
vention which elected the national delegates to the con-
vention that nominated Gen. Hancock for the Presidency.
He and his family have been consistent members of the
Reformed church all their lives. He was married to Ma-
linda Snyder, born 1830, daughter of Peter and Cathar-
ine Snyder, prominent residents of Bethel township. Mr.
