T1MES.NEWS (Mot  IlL) TI[UIDAT, DEGENBER 21, 1961 BERGOLD ONE OF MANY GERMAN FAMILIES HERE In writing information about former Mount Pulaskians, it is of interest to many to read about citizens who were active and well known during the period of the 1880's and 1890's. Such a per- son was Peter Bergold, who lived at the corner of Cooke and Gar- den Streets. Peter Bergold was born April 28, 1846, in Hartenrod, Kreis Lin- denfels, Germany. He had an eventful career serving in the German Army of 1866, and the Franco-Prussian War, 1870.1871. In 1872 he left his native land and came*to the United States, and directly to Mount Pulaski. On May 23, 1873, here in Mount Pul- aski, he married Barbara Lang, who was born in Germany on Jan. 9, 1850, and had come direct- ly to Mount Pulaski from her na- tive land in the early 1870's. In the many years that follow- ed Mr. Bergold became a well known citizen, holding the post of night police from 1887 to 1896. He also had the job of lighting the oil lamps at street intersec- tions before electricity was estab- lished in the city in 1893. HILLTOP BOWL, INC.
