AN OLD SETTLER PASSES AWAY.
Hon. H. Nielander of Lansing Died of Apoplexy Last Week Wednesday.
Old-timers who did business in pioneer days at Lansing, when all grain was marketed at river points, will remember Henry Nielander as one of the enterprising merchants of that place.
He came to this country from Germany in 1851, and, three years later, located at Lansing where he has continuously resided until Wednesday of last week when suddenly, without a moment’s warning, he suffered a stroke of apoplexy, fell upon the sidewalk and in spite of all medical aid that could be procured, died inside of an hour.
He was seventy-two years old and up to the very last hour of his life was actively engaged in business and regarded as one of Lansing’s most enterprising citizens.
Mr. Nielander was born in Germany in 1833. In 1879 he was elected Senator from Allamakee county and was the first Republican chosen from that district. He also held numerous local offices.
Transcriber’s Note: Find-a-Grave shows he is buried in Oak Hill Cemetery and was born May 26, 1833 and died June 14, 1905.
