On Sept. 18th, 1877, death bereaved the family of the good husband and father. The union was with eleven children, three of which died in early youth, viz: Carl and Peter in Ohio, and John in Garnavillo. Besides these the aged mother was deeply bereaved in the death of her son Jacques, who was called home at the age of 44 years.
