Cascade Pioneer, Published in Cascade, Iowa on Friday, August 9th, 1895

Christian Conrad, aged 115 years was in town last Saturday selling his picture. The old gentleman is probably the oldest man in Iowa, was born Sept. 22, 1780, and is still hale and quite hearty. He walked from his home (near Lindsy Bridge) to Dundee a distance of 7 miles, between 1 o’clock and 4 o’clock Friday afternoon. Artist G. W. Roe took two excellent negatives of the old man while he was here. The old man is a native of Augusta Township, Northumberland County, Penn., and a veteran of the Black Hawk War. He has great grandchildren, we are told whose age incapacitates them from labor, and yet he worked quite a garden last summer.-Strawberry Point Mail.
