Fred N. Deitz

Birth

Frederick N. Deitz was born on November 3, 1887 in Pleasant Valley, Town of Knox, Albany County, N.Y. His parents were Ellery Willes Deitz (Feb 14, 1858- May 17, 1914), a stone mason, and Carrie E. Warner (Nov 22, 1858- Oct 19,1939). He had a sister, Nellie B. Deitz (October 26, 1883- March 18, 1929).

Marriage and Children

He married Theodora N. Haverly, daughter of William J. Haverly and Carrie E. Naughright of West Berne, on June 25, 1908 at Gallupville, Schoharie, N.Y. Fred and Dora Deitz had the following children:

  • Margaret E. Deitz born 1908, died 1908.
  • Harold F. Deitz born February 18, 1910, married Edith Mae Vining , died June 24, 1985.

  • Fred Deitz moved with his parents and sister to a house on Jug Street, Berne, N.Y. in 1899.

Occupation

He first taught in the local schools, and in 1911, took over the R.F.D. mail route on which he served the Berne community for 30 plus years. When the Berne Central School was established in 1932, he became the first clerk of the Board of Education. Some years later he was treasurer of the school until his death in 1950. His wife Dora took over that position and held it for several years more. Fred also served as supervisor of the Town of Berne in 1946. He also sold cemetery markers from his home. His mail route took him up over West Mountain and he often obtained the assistance of Clyde L. Ball when deep snow drifts hindered the horse and sleigh.[1] Fred also took great pride in his large vegetable gardens. He was a member of the Berne Reformed Church.

He died on October 23, 1950 at age 62 at Ellis Hospital, Schenectady, N.Y. He was buried at Woodlawn Cemetery, Town of Berne, Albany, N.Y.
