Gottlieb Kernen (March 12, 1843 - Oct 7, 1934) was a native of Switzerland,  coming to America with the determination to make good, never afraid of work, which was an essential in supporting the fine family of nine children who grew to man and womanhood without a break, until a year ago a daughter, Mrs. Pauline Cummings, was the victim of an auto accident, and the remaining children, who are Wm., Bert, Henry, Fred, Charley and Mrs. Louis Rider of this community, John of Carbon, and Mrs. Clara Munson of Denver, Colo., with his life long companion, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, deeply mourn his passing, and let's add that during his 91 years he "Lived in the house by the side of the road and was a friend of man."  (Adams County Free Press, Corning, IA, October 11, 1934)
