The deceased, Earnie Harry Moon, was born March 15, 1901 in Monona township, Clayton county, Iowa, as one of six children of Harry Moon and his wife Tenna, nee Muller.

In early infancy he was baptized into the name of the triune God. His entire life was spent in the place of his birth. When he had attained the proper age he attended both pubic and religious school. When he had reached the proper age he renewed the covenant of his baptism through the rite of confirmation.

On April 20, 1921, he was united in marriage to Bertha Lienau. They moved to the farm which was to be his home until his death.

For many years he had been a faithful member of the St. John Lutheran church here in Farmersburg, serving on the church council, as chairman of the church council, as also serving on various committees. He was also a faithful member of the choir.
