      Our subject [Edward D. Benzel] was born February 22, 1846, and learned the milling trade of his father, which he was forced to abandon on account of a violent illness, which crippled him in his lower limbs to such an extent, that he was compelled to use crutches. He then secured an excellent education, having the advantage of the York County Normal and the Academy. Subsequently he became a teacher, which he continued for six terms in York Borough and the county. He then entered the political field, and in 1872 was elected clerk of the courts, the duties of which position he honorably discharged for three years. Deciding upon the profession of law, he entered the office of James B. Ziegler, Esq., and in 1878 was admitted to practice, at which he has been actively engaged up to the present time. Mr. Bentzel is an uncompromising Democrat, a valued leader in politics, and a citizen of worth and progressive ideas. He was married to Ida Kate Wehrly, daughter of George Wehrly, proprieter of the Pennsylvania House, York, February 24, 1881. They have three children: Edith May, Earnie (sic) and Edward Wehrly.
