Remains of William Peer, Who Disappeared a Fortnight Ago, Are Found
An object was noticed bobbing in the Mohawk river, opposite Yates' boat house. about 6 o'clock last night by three boatmen, and upon examination it was found to be the lifeless body of a man. The body was towed to the shore at the foot of North Ferry street and Coroner E. Holcomb Jackson was notified. The coroner on arrival identified the remains as those of William Peer, the Glenville farmer who has been missing since two weeks ago yesterday. He had been employed for some years as section foreman on the F. J. & G. railroad.
The boatmen were Frank Sauter of 132 North Ferry street, James Ramson of Scotia and Cecil Squires of 679 Albany Street.
Peer resided near Reynolds, in Glenville. He was last seen in the vicinity of lock No. 9, above Scotia, and it was supposed that he had lost his life in the river. He was dressed in a dark suit, dark negligee shirt, black socks and shirt. He wore his watch, by means of which, together with a particular lump on his head, the coroner made his identification.
The police had been notified of the finding of the body and the motor patrol was hurried to North Ferry street. Motor patrolman Kipp was also on duty at the river front and assisted in maintaining order, hundreds of the curious crowding about the disfigured remains.
Gleason and Bernardi was ordered to remove the remains to the firms morgue, where it was formally identified by members of the Peer family later in the night.
The dead man is survived by a wife, two sons and two daughters. Edward the older of the sons, went to the undertaking establishment and viewed the remains. Two rings on the body, one plain gold and one silver, helped to establish the identification. The other children are Earle, aged 16 years, and Bertha and Elma, 6 and 5 years, respectively. Howard Peer, 109 James street, Scotia, and employe of the New York Central, is a brother of the drowned man. He also was in the city last night and saw the body.
After the remains have been prepared for burial they will be sent to the home of his brother James, where funeral services will be held, although no arrangements have been made as yet for them.2
