    Samuel E. Kumler
    Zum Andenken an Samuel E. Kumler
    Am Samstag, den 23. Juli, kurz nach Mitternacht, hat Herr Samuel E. Kumler, einer der prominentesten und geachtesten Geschäftsleute der Stadt, im Alter von nahezu 71 Jahren die Augen zum ewigen Schlummer geschlossen. Am Montag vorher wurde er, während er als Sekretär und Schatzmeister der Rike-Kumler Company in deren Geschäft an der Vierten und Main Straße seinen Pflichten nachging, vom Schlag gerührt und aufs Krankenlager geworfen. Die Aerzte erkannten sofort, daß das Schlimmste zu erwarten sei und veranlaßten, daß seine Gemahlin und Kinder, die sich in Michigan in der Sommerfrische befanden, nach Dayton zurückzukehren. Sie kamen am Donnerstag Nachmittag hier an und zu ihrer Freude nahm Herr Kumler sofort an Kräften zu. Es erfolgte jedoch während der Nacht ein Rückschlag und am Samstag Morgen kam das Ende.
    Der Verblichene hat ein reichgesegnetes, gehaltvolles Leben hinter sich. Er wurde am 29. November 1839 in Lewisburg, Preble County, Ohio, geboren und war ein Sohn von Bischof Henry Kumler. In 1857 kam er nach Dayton und lernte hier das Buchbinderhandwerk. Sein Wunsch, sich höhere Bildung zu erwerben, veranlaßte ihn, in 1860 in die Otterbein-Universität in Westerville einzutreten. Im August des folgenden Jahres folgte er jedoch Lincoln’s Ruf zu den Waffen. Herr Kumler diente drei Jahre in Compagnie H des 15. Bundes-Infantrie-Regimentes.
    Er nahm an einer Anzahl Schlachten und Gefechten theil und nachdem er als Sergeant entlassen worden war, kam er wieder nach Dayton. Er arbeitete im Laden von Prugh & Rike und erwies sich so geschickt und strebsam, daß er in 1836 als Theilhaber in die Firma aufgenommen wurde. Ihr Name war nun D. L. Rike & Co., den sie bis zum Herbst 1892 behielt. Dann wurde er in Rike Dry Goods Company umgeändert und nach dem Tode von R. J. Cummin erhielt das Geschäft den Namen: Rike-Kumler-Company. Dem Verstorbenen muß sicherlich ein großer Verdienst an dem Anwachsen und der Ausdehnung des Geschäftes zugesprochen werden.
    In 1866 verheirathete sich Herr Kumler mit Frl. Mary L. Chambers, die ihm fünf Kinder schenkte, welche alle noch am Leben sind, Irwin G., Bessie, Gemahlin von Charles H. Bosler, RichardE., Barret B. und Ada, Gemahlin von Charles D. Bronson. Die Söhne bekleiden alle verantwortliche Posten bei der Rike-Kumler Company. Es betrauern ihn ferner noch zwei Geschwister: Herr Jesse B. Kumler und Frau Salome A. Rike, Wittwe von D. L. Rike.
    Herr Kumler war Direktor und Schatzmeister des Equitable Bauvereins und Präsident der Trustee der United Brethren Publishing Company. Der Vereinigten-Brüder-Kirche war er ein geschätztes, opferwilliges Glied. Fünfund dreißig Jahre war er Superintendent der Sonntagsschule der Ersten Ver. Brüder-Kirche, jetzt an der West Vierten Straße.
    Die Beisetzung der Leiche erfolgte auf dem Woodland Friedhof am Montag Nachnittag nach einer imposanten Trauerfeier in der Ver. Brüder Kirche.
    Herr Kumler’s Leben unter uns war ein derartiges, daß sein Hinscheiden uns mit unaussprechlicher Trauer erfüllt hat welche nur Zeit lindern kann. Er war ein anspruchsloser Mann und besaß dennoch jene Eigenschaften des Charakters, welche ihn großmüthig und edel machten, ein Freund in der That und in Wahrheit.
    In seiner Art und Weise war jener Geist und jenes Benehmen, welche jede Zurückhaltung verbannten und seine Anwesenheit unter seinen Angestellten war eher die eines Kameraden als eines Vorgesetzten und dennoch wurde er in höchster Achtung und Werthschätzung gehalten.
    Wir wisse, daß er gegangen ist, aber es ist ein Wissen ohne uns der Tragweite der Thatsache völlig bewußt zu sein, und wir sind gezwungen auszurufe: Nur einen Druck noch der verschwundenen Hand, nur einen Laut noch der Stimme, welche verstummt ist.
    Unsere Theilnahme ist mit Frau Kumler, ihren Söhnen und Töchtern in einem Maaße, wie es nur unsern eigenen gramvollen Herzen möglich ist.

    Samuel E. Kumler
    In memory of Samuel E. Kumler
    On Saturday, July 23, shortly after midnight, Mr. Samuel E. Kumler, one of the most prominent and geachtesten businessmen of the city, closed his eyes to eternal sleep at the age of almost 71 years. On Monday before he was while in their business at the Fourth and Main Street he pursued as secretary and treasurer of the Rike Kumler Company-his duties, stirred shock and thrown sickbed. The doctors immediately realized that the worst was to be expected and caused that to return his wife and children, who were in Michigan in the summer to Dayton. They came on Thursday afternoon here and to her delight, Mr. Kumler immediately forces to. However, it took place during the night and a check on Saturday morning came the end.
    The deceased has a reichgesegnetes, meaty life behind. He was born on November 29, 1839 in Lewisburg, Preble County, Ohio, and was a son of Bishop Henry Kumler. In 1857 he came to Dayton and learned here the bookbinding. His desire to acquire higher education, led him to enter 1860 in the Otterbein University in Westerville. However, in August of the following year he followed Lincoln's call to arms. Mr. Kumler served three years in Company H of the 15th Infantry Regiment federal.
    He took in part to a number of battles and skirmishes, and after he had been discharged as a sergeant, he returned to Dayton. He worked in the shop of Prugh & Rike and proved so adept and ambitious, that he was admitted in 1836 as partakers in the company. Her name was now DL Rike & Co., which they retained until the fall of 1892. Then it was changed to Rike Dry Goods Company, and after the death of RJ Cummin's business was called: Rike-Kumler Company. The deceased must certainly be given a great merit to the growth and expansion of the business.
    In 1866, Mr. Kumler was married to Miss. Mary L. Chambers, who bore him five children, all of which are still alive, Irwin G., Bessie, wife of Charles H. Bosler, Richarde., Barret B. and Ada, wife by Charles D. Bronson. The sons hold all responsible posts at the Rike Kumler-Company. It also mourn him two sisters: Mr. and Mrs. Jesse B. Kumler Rike A. Salome, widow of DL Rike.
    Mr. Kumler was director and treasurer of the Equitable Building Association and President of the Trustee of the United Brethren Publishing Company. The United Brethren Church-he was a valued, sacrificially member. Fünfund thirty years he was superintendent of the Sunday school of the First Ver. Brethren Church, now at Fourth West Street.
    The burial of the corpse was carried to the Woodland Cemetery on Monday Nachnittag after an imposing funeral in the Ver. Church of the Brethren.
    Mr. Kumler's life among us was such that his passing has filled us with inexpressible grief that can only alleviate time. He was an unassuming man, yet possessed those qualities of character which made him generous and noble, a friend in deed and in truth.
    In his manner was that spirit and that behavior which banished any restraint and his presence among his employees was rather that of a comrade as a superior and yet he was held in high esteem and value estimate.
    We know that he is gone, but it is knowledge without us the importance of the fact to be fully aware, and we are forced auszurufe: Only one pressure nor the vanished hand, only a sound nor the voice that has been silenced.
    Our sympathy is with Mrs. Kumler, their sons and daughters in proportion as it is only our own sorrowful heart possible.
