Willie Bleck Death, 1913 Clipping

Clipping detailing the death of a 7-year-old Willie Bleck. The Shehawken House was a small hotel that was owned by Peter Bleck, Willie’s uncle. It was still around operating as that business at least until 1951 and owned by Peter’s daughter, who died of a heart attack in the hotel. Willie is buried at Riverview Cemetery in Hancock.  If interested, you can view Willie’s memorial card in our members’ section.
