      The obituary of this ancestor has recently been posted at http://192.237.29.216/getperson.php?personID=I137893&tree=Eby as follows:

      Basilius Wurm died here on Friday after a short bladder ailment at the great age of 89 years, which he had attained on July 23rd. He was born in 1807 in Herbstein in the Vogel mountains in Hesse-Darmstadt; emigrated to Canada in 1852 and had resided ever since in Berlin. He was a building carpenter and was still practising his trade 5 years ago. In Germany, he had spent 12 years in the military, and that could still be seen in him in his old age, as he always walked "straight as a candle" and was always very tidily dressed. His wife Elisabeth, nee Loeb, who pre-deceased him in 1880, bore him 6 children, of whom 3 sons are deceased, and one son and 2 daughters are still living. His oldest son, Daniel, fought in the civil war in the United States and was killed there. Basilius was awarded a pension for this. His burial took place on Sunday afternoon and despite the rainy weather, large numbers of citizens followed his cortege to the cemetery.
