The following was taken from a last week’s Le Mars, Iowa, newspaper:

Henry Ideker, one of the early settlers of Plymouth county, died in his home on Second Avenue S. E., on Tuesday at the age of 83 years. The funeral was on Friday afternoon at 12:30 at the house and St. Paul’s M. E. church at 1 o’clock, and the body was taken to the Lincoln township Lutheran cemetery for burial, following services in St. Paul’s church here.

Mr. Ideker was born in Germany and came to the United States when he was still a young man. He settled in Clayton county, where he farmed for a few years. Then he came to Plymouth county, in the southwestern part of which he operated a farm very successfully. A few years ago he came to LeMars, where he lived until his death. He had a wide acquaintance in this community, especially among the older settlers.

The deceased was born May 10, 1845. He was married twice. His first wife preceded him in death. His second wife survives him. One brother, Fred Ideker, still lives in Germany, and the following five children survive:

Mrs. Mary Mueck, Henry L. Ideker, Herman Ideker, Edmund Ideker, Fremont Ideker. All are resident of Plymouth county except Fremont Ideker, who lives in Sioux City.

Mr. Ideker’s death marks the passing of another of the pioneers who made Plymouth county what it is, and founded a prominent family.
