Ernest Carl Ludwig Heyer was born January 10, 1870 in Stolpt, Germany. At the age of 10 he came to America with his parents, who settled down in Chicago, where he remained for six years. There he was confirmed in the Lutheran faith in St. Mathews Lutheran church. From Chicago he went to Cushing, Iowa where he resided for 11 years. He saw service with the army in the Spanish-American war. After living a year at Pipestone, Minn., and a year at Storm Lake, Ia., he moved with his family to Estherville. Here he engaged in the shoe business, now conducted gy Bringle Brothers, but ill health finally forced him to give this up. He was able a year ago to do a little real estate business but soon he had to discontinue that also on account his health. He has been bed-fast practically since June and the end came quietly Monday afternoon.
On July 26, 1899 he was married to Kathryn Margaret Claussen at Wall Lake, Iowa. To this union was born six children, Gladys, Lester, Willard, Irene, Luverne and Vera, who together with their mother mourn the loss of their kind father and husband.
Among those gathered to attend the funeral services were Mrs. Gertrude Stoltz and son Will, Albert Heyer, Mr. and Mrs. W. Kowalki of Cushing, Mrs. Ida Gampp and son Henry of Anthon, Gus Heyer of Cornell, Wis., Mr. and Mrs. Carl Hess of Wall Lake, Mr. and Mrs. Henry Galtz of Sac City and Mrs. Lou Fimmer of Fulda, Minn.
