S. T. BUELL DEAD
Word received in this city Sunday, told of the death at Lone Tree Saturday, of Samuel Buell, one of the early day dry goods merchants of this city, and the former business partner of the late M. P. Andrews. The word telling of Mr. Buell's death came to Harry Roberts in a letter from Mr. Buell's son, Henry C. Buell, cashier of the Lone Tree Savings Bank. Mr. Buells death was due to heart disease, from which he had been a sufferer for some time.
Samuel T. Buell was a native of Vermont and was 74 years old. He came west as a young man, in 1865, and with M. F. Andrews started a dry goods business in Mechanicsville, under the firm name of Andrews and Buell. In 1879 the firm moved to this city and engaged in business, the two members of the firm remaining together until 1887, when Mr. Buell disposed of his interest to Mr. Andrews and left for California. Mr. Buell remained in California several years, and then returned to Mechanicsville, where he again opened a dry goods business. Two years ago Mr. Buell retired from business owing to his health and went to live with his son Harry, Aside from his wife, and son Harry, he has an older son, Kenneth, who lives in Independence.
Mr. Buell's body will be taken from Lone Tree to Mechanicsville today, and the funeral will take place at Mechanicsville Tuesday.
