Emmanuel Danish Lutheran Church
It is not generally known that the Danes hold religious services in the old Fox steamer house, on State street, Lansingburgh, every Sunday. A Danish minister from Michigan has lately arrived and taken charge of the church. The congregation is made up of Danes from Troy, Cohoes, West Troy, Waterford and Lansingburgh, and the services are all in the Danish language.

The Danish Lutheran congregation are now occupying their new church, Bethany chapel, which they purchased recently from the First Presbyterian church. Previous to their occupancy of their present church they had worshipped in the old Fox steamer house, the free use of which had been kindly granted them by Mrs. Deborah Powers, the owner, for the past nine years.

—Jacob Dorsland or Dowsland, the Dane who was burned to death in the fire last Friday night in the Kessler row on Fourth avenue near [One Hundred] Tenth street, was buried Sunday afternoon, the funeral being held in the Danish Lutheran church. The interment was in the village burying ground. The deceased had been known by different names in the village, but had passed most of the time her as Jacob Miller. It is not known how the fire originated, whether from an overturned stove or from a lighted pipe coming in contact with the bedding. The Coroner’s jury viewed the remains Saturday evening, and will meet at Wall’s undertaking rooms to render a verdict this Thursday evening.
