Hawk Eye
Burlington, Iowa
30 Nov 1843

In this City on Saturday last Charles Justus, only child of the Rev. Joseph Rieger, aged 8 months.

It will be remembered that a few weeks since we published the Obituary of Mrs. Rieger, consort of the Rev. Jos. Rieger, of the places. We are now called on to record the death of his only surviving child. He was a lovely little boy, and he now lies in the same grave with his late amiable and pious mother.

"They sleep in Jesus - blessed sleep, From which none ever wake to weep." Just has this man of God, who came here at three months ago to labor and preach the gospel to his countrymen, been deprived of a pleasant home and all that was most dear to him on earth.
