At the time Mr. Bedelle settled in Jackson Township nearly all this country was one immense forest. He, with his father-in-law engaged in the lumber business, and owned and operated a saw mill which is now in ruins from the wreck of time. He left a family of four daughters and one son, but death has entered portals of the family and taken one of the daughters, Lettie, who died the 15th.
