Jonathan Radabauch was born in Pennsylvania June 12th, 1835, and died April 15th, 1915, in the eightieth year of his age. He emigrated to Iowa at an early age, where the greater part of his life was spent. On August 15, 1858, he was united in marriage with Miss Elizabeth Haggard, of Jefferson, to which union ten children were born. His wife and six children preceded him in death. The remaining children are: William, of Carlton, Minnesota; Mrs. Kate Clemens of Earlville, and Tracy and Charles, of Jefferson. He is also survived by thirty grandchildren and twenty-four great-grandchildren, three brothers and one sister. The sister and two brothers reside in Montana and the other brother in Minnesota. He served as a soldier in the Civil war and was a member of S. G. Post G. A. R. Since the death of his wife, about eight years ago, Mr. Radabauch made his home with his children, spending his last days at the home of his son Charles, where he passed peacefully away at 2:30 o'clock last Thursday morning. He had suffered three strokes of paralysis at various times, surviving the last one but three days. The funeral services were held Sunday from the M. E. Church at Jefferson, Rev. O. J.
