Margaret HAMMEL was born in the city of Cork, Baden, Germany, July 23, 1822, and died in Allamakee Co. Iowa, Jan 27, 1893, aged 70 years, 7 months and 24 days.

Her parents were Lutherans and she was baptized and confirmed at 13 years of age. Mrs. HAMMEL lived a quiet, good life among her neighbors in this county for 35 years, where her children have been reared and gone to homes of their own, and now God has taken her we trust to a better home.

Her maiden name was Margaret JOKERS, and she was married to John HAMMEL, July 30, 1854, in Boston, Massachusetts. Mr. HAMMEL survives his wife and will feel this stroke of God's providence very keenly in the days to come. There are two children also who are left to mourn the loss of the mother who watched over their lives with a tender love, viz: Mr. John HAMMEL of Allamakee Co., and Mrs. William KNODT, of Hartford, South Dakota. The bereaved husband and children have the sympathy of a large circle of neighbors in their affliction.

The funeral was conducted by the writer, from Bethel church, on Sabbath, Jan 29, and the remains were buried in Minert cemetery to await the final resurrection of the quick and the dead.
