Duell, Adelbert W. (17 OCT 1915 - 27 JUL 1933)

Adelbert William Duell, son of Frank and Anna Duell was born October 17, 1915 and died Thursday morning about 2:00 o’clock A.M. July 27, 1933, from injuries received in an automobile accident. He leaves to mourn his sudden death, his mother and father; two brothers, Kenneth and Merlin; two sisters, Dorothy and Verl; his paternal Grandfather, Mr. Asa Duell; his maternal grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Charles Flaherty; and his great grandmother, Mrs. Elizabeth Welsh of Loyal and many other relatives.

Adelbert attended school in the village of Loyal until 8 tears of age. At that time the Duell family moved to their present farm home northeast of this village. He finished the grades at Sunnyside School in Beaver, then attended Loyal High School for a time, but returned to the farm to help his father with the farm work. Adelbert was generally known as "Brother" to all his family and friends.

Funeral services were held at the home at 1:00 P. M. and at the local M. E. Church at 2:00 o’clock, the Rev. W. N. Grandy officiating. Burial took place in the Loyal Cemetery.

Pall bearers were: Paul Otto, Henry Smith, Ervin Schmidt, Milton Wolfe, Ford Luber and Luallen Christman. The flower girls were: Verna Litka, Adeline Litka, Lorraine Greve, Mavis Greve, Virginia Dobbe, Lila Dunn and La Verna Otto.

Out of town relatives who attended the funeral were: Mrs. Lewis Heck, Mrs. Victor Lindbergh of Ashland, Mr. and Mrs. Asa Duell of Greenwood, Mr. and Mrs. Fred Hastings and Mr. and Mrs. Charles Flaherty of Perkinstown and Mr. and Mrs. Geo. Duell of Maplehurst.


Do you have any information on Anna DUELL Mielke of Michigan and Minnesota? She would have died about 1930 perhaps?

I am looking for a descendent of hers.  A related name is Keefe.  Alexandra,
