Elgin Echo, Thursday, 20 August 1908.
George Reinhart, son of Mr. and Mrs. Jacob Reinhart, who reside near Elkader, died Tuesday. He was a young man about 22 years old, a steady industrious fellow and his death is deeply regretted. Lockjaw was the immediate cause and the beginning dates back several weeks when he accidentally stepped on a rusty nail which penetrated his foot. He was a grandson of Mrs. John Reinhart, of our city, and the lady accompanied by her daughter, Mrs. Fred Miller and husband, drove to the bereaved home Wednesday.
Elkader Register & Argus, Thur., 20 Aug. 1908.
At the home of his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Jacob Reinhardt, in Boardman twp., Tuesday afternoon, Aug. 18th, 1908, occurred the death of their oldest son George.
About five weeks ago while working in the barn George stepped upon a rusty nail which just penetrated his foot, not thinking anything of the injury he continued with his work on the farm. Last Friday he was taken seriously ill and tetanus set in. Every effort was made for his recovery, but medical skill proved unavailing.
George was born in Wagner twp. Aug. 21st, 1885, and was nearly 23 years of age. He was an industrious, worthy young man, the main stay of his parents.
He is survived by his parents, three sisters and a brother, besides many relatives who are all grief stricken with the sudden bereavement that has come upon them.
Funeral services were held this afternoon at the house and at the German church at Elkader, Rev. C. H. Franke officiating. Many sorrowing friends and neighbors attended the last sad rites. We can only add our heartfelt sympathy.
