Austin S. Bernheisel, the owner and editor of the "Neosho Valley Times" of Hartford, Kan., was born in Pennsylvania in 1867, and is the descendant of a long line of "Pennsylvania Dutch" ancestors, who did so much to make that state the "Keystone" of the Union. His father, Martin J. Bernheisel, was born in Pennsylvania in 1841; he was educated at the Tressler Academy, Loysville, Pa., and after reaching manhood engaged in the milling business, which occupation he followed until his death in 1908. Austin Bernheisel's mother, Catharine A. Heim, was also born in Pennsylvania in 1839; she was reared in her native state and educated at Tressler Academy, Loysville, and there met and married Martin Bernheisel. The family were members of the Lutheran church.

Austin Bernheisel was educated in Pennsylvania, and after completing his education served an apprenticeship at the printer's trade at New Bloomfield, Pa. In 1891 he came west and located at Chicago, Ill., where he worked at his trade until 1895. That year he came to Kansas and became editor of the "Neosho Valley Times." Mr. Bernheisel is a Republican in politics and his paper is regarded as one of the popular organs of that party. Mr. Bernheisel has been a resident of the state for sixteen years, and has made many warm friends. His paper has been a success and he is regarded as one of the rising young newspaper men of the Neosho valley.

In 1900 Mr. Bernheisel married Susan M., the daughter of W. H. Flickinger of Hartford, Kan. One child has been born to this union. Mr. Flickinger is a retired merchant and now resides at Hartford. His wife died in 1894. Mr. Bernheisel belongs to the Independent Order of Odd Fellows, Modern Woodmen of America and American Order of United Workmen. He is secretary of the Hartford Commercial Club, president of the board of education and secretary of the Hartford Booster Club. He is progressive in his ideas, always supports all city improvements and is one of the popular business men of Hartford.
