Clayton County Register, Thur., 15 Sept. 1932.

Henry Limbach was a son of Joseph and Eva Limbach, and was born in Garnavillo, June 21, 1859. He was a member of a family of two boys and three girls, and is the last of this group to be laid to rest. His entire lifetime was spent in the town of his birth.

On October 16, 1884, he was united in marriage with Miss Amelia Tangeman, also of Garnavillo. This pair had lived together for 48 years, and were already laying plans for the celebration of their fiftieth wedding anniversary. They became the parents of five children, of whom two have preceded their father in death.

Mr. Limbach was a wagon-maker by trade, and when work in this field became lessened, he spent considerable time carpentering and painting. He was active in community affairs and life. He was a member of the Modern Woodnen; for 25 years he held the office of secretary of the local Turnverein, and during the past eight years served his community as town assessor. His death came suddenly, on the evening of Sept. 15th, after reaching the age of 73 years, two months and 25 days. The closest members of his family, who mourn his passing, are: his wife; three daughters, Mrs. Gretchen Detteman, wife of Elmer Dettman; Miss Charlotte Limbach, Hollywood, Calif, and Mrs. Edna Schulte, wife of Harold Schulte, of Garnavillo; four grandchildren.

Funeral services were held at St. Paul's church Monday at 2 p.m., conducted by the Rev. M. J. Harder, pastor. Interment took place at the Garnavillo cemetery.

(Note: Although the date printed on the newspaper page is 15 Sept. 1932, it may actually be from a week later edition.)
