He was a good neighbor and kind father. His death is mourned by four children: Mrs. Elizabeth Mann, of Langford, S.D.; and Mrs. Mary Oelke, Mrs. Friedericka Church and Ernest Kluth, of this place; besides many relatives and friends.

The floral offerings were large and beautiful. The funeral was held on Monday afternoon, March 31st, at one o'clock at the German Lutheran church, Rev. Theo. F. Guetzlaff officiating. Interment in Farmersburg cemetery. The family has the sympathy of all in their bereavement.
