    Biography

    • Balsar Kreitzer was born in Myerstown and was a direct descendant of Peter Kreitzer, who came from Germany and settled in Tulpehocken, Berks County, Pa., in 1762. About 1826-27 Balsar Kreitzer went to Milton, Pa., and was largely interested for many years as contractor for lumber jobs, cleared off most of the heavy timber around Milton, and rafted most of it to market. His principal business was lumbering. He purchased the old Lutheran Church on Mahoning street and remodeled it into a dwelling, which is now the residence of Samuel Fletcher. Mr. Kreitzer was a Whig and later a Republican. He held minor offices in the township and was a member of the Lutheran Church. He died in 1878 at the age of seventy-eight; his good wife survived him until 1884, when she, too, laid down the burden of life, at the advanced age of eighty-two. Their children were as follows: Washington, our subject's father; John; Sarah; Jacob; Reuben; William; Adam; and Moses, who died in early childhood.
