By the death of J. J. Groeneveld passes away one of the few remaining old settlers. Death came after a slight illness of only two days. Mr. Groeneveld was born in Ostfriesland, Germany in 1820, came to America in the sixties and has since lived in Grundy county. He was always interested and would talk about affairs in the old country of past and present, receiving papers from there regularly every week. Having a great memory he would readily recall particulars of events fifty, sixty or seventy years ago. He had never been attended by a doctor. Five sons and two daughters survive him. The funeral took place Monday conducted by Rev. J. J. Agena--German Cor. to Ackley Journal
