Elkader Register & Argus, Thur., 29 July 1909. Garnavillo column.

John Henry Nieter was born on the 10th of January, 1838, in New Bremen, Anglaice county, Ohio. In 1862 he enlisted and entered the field of battle. Through three years of struggle he remained with the army, following the line of battle from eastern Tennessee westward as far as Little Rock, Ark. His course of battle took him through many states and cities. After peace was declared he came to Garnavillo to attend school. After a short time here he wandered from place to place, working as clerk. Later he returned to Garnavillo where he remained until the time of his death. On May 25th, 1870, he married Anna Adelheid Kuenzel. To this union were born eight children, one of whom, Harry, has preceded the father in death. Those surviving are: Mrs. Caroline Day, of Garnavillo; Louis, of Dubuque; John, Edward and Almore, of Haley, N.D.; Fred, of Mishawaka, Ind.; and Willis, still at home. He was employed by the Co-Operative Creamery company of this place, as cooper, for many years, also serving in various offices. For thirty years he was secretary of the Buck Creek school, and also acted as justice of the peace and notary public. He was a member of the turnverein and deacon of the church. After an illness of several month's duration he passed away Wednesday afternoon, July 21st, at the age of 71 years, 6 months and 11 days. Besides his wife and seven children he leaves nine grandchildren and a sister in Cincinnati, Ohio. The funeral was held on Saturday, July 24th, at St. Paul's church, Rev. Braun conducting the services. One of the impressive features of the burial service was the bearing of the casket by his six sons. The funeral cortege was headed by deacons of the church and the members of the Turnverein. The remains were laid to rest in the new cemetery.
