Montgomery Ledger, May 2, 1871

Reuben Bechtel, a native of Pottstown, and known to many of our readers, died on Tuesday last, at Trenton, N. J., of consumption. He was a brother of Joshua Bechtel, Esq., and a brother-in-law of Henry Mintzer, Esq., of this place. The Trenton True American say of him - "He was kind and warm hearted to friends, and a gossipy and companionable citizen, with an ardent love for Trenton and its advancement. Only a few months since he erected the house in which he died. When engaged in building it he jokingly remarked that it was his last house, little thinking that he would be called away so soon. His illness was of short duration, and his death was mourned by many friends."
