Deaths of the Week - Henry Schorg
On Monday afternoon, February 15, 1915, at two o'clock at his home in this city occurred the death of Henry Schorg, after a two months illness. Deceased was born in Eisenach, Germany, on August 27, 1837 and therefore was 77 years, 5 months and 18 days of age at the time of his death.

In the year 1858 he came to the United States, settling in Jefferson township, Clayton County Iowa. He was also an old G.A.R. Veteran. For several years he was engaged as a miner in this vicinity.

On August 19, 1866, he was married at Guttenberg, Iowa to Miss Elizabeth Lenhart, after which, he and Mrs. Schorg were successfully engaged in farming up until 10 years ago, when they came to Guttenberg to spend their remaining days of life.

He was a patient sufferer and all that loving hands could do and medical knowledge could suggest was done for him, but all to no avail. He was an ambitious and trustworthy man during his entire life, and was a kind and true husband, father and friend, always ready with heart and hand to help those in need, which won him many friends and by whom he will be sadly missed.

His death is deeply mourned by his wife, eight sons, Henry and Herman, of Remsen, Iowa, John and August of Spencer, S. D., Frank of Jefferson township, Emil of Highmore, S.D., William of Wolsey, S.D. and Edward of San Francisco, Cal., four daughters, Mrs. Emil Tschohl, of Milwaukee, Wis., Mrs. John Hartgen, of Remsen, Iowa, Mrs. Calvin Schroeder, of Jefferson township, and Mrs. Louis Walke of Guttenberg, a number of grandchildren, and a large circle of relatives and friends.

Funeral services will be held tomorrow, Friday, afternoon at two o'clock at the Schorg home in this city. Attorney Chas. E. Scholz of this city, will officiate at the funeral. Interment will be made in the City Cemetery.
